Tim Connelly’s contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves includes an opt-out after the 2023-2024 season. Initially signed to a five-year, $40 million deal in 2022, Connelly’s agreement aligned with Marc Lore and Alex Rodriguez’s acquisition, approved by Glen Taylor.

The Wolves, likely to secure the No. 2 seed, await potential ownership disputes as Lore and Rodriguez may face legal action from Taylor over payment issues.

Connelly, with his former team, the Denver Nuggets, poised as the No. 1 seed in the West, may explore extension options with the Wolves or attract interest from other teams.
