“It’s a young roster at the right time, and we can establish an identity,” said Finch. “It’s a hard league to win in, but we’re not a million miles away.”

The newly hired coach express the will to build his gameplan around superstar center Karl-Anthony Towns explaining that ‘you don’t often get that type of skill package’.

“It’s a tough moment for anyone when there’s a change in the organization but we talked about how we can get him back to being the centerpoint of this team,” Finch said.

The Wolves are on the bottom of the NBA standings having a 7-24 record heading to the All-Star break.
