Timberwolves name John Thomas VP of community engagement

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) John Thomas grew up in Minneapolis, becoming a prep star at Roosevelt High School before playing at the University of Minnesota and bouncing around the NBA for five seasons.

One of those seasons toward the end of his career was with his hometown Timberwolves and he had always hoped to one day return to the organization. That day finally came on Thursday when the Wolves hired him as vice president of community engagement.

"There's a real shift in mindset and the direction the team wants to take," Thomas said. "I'm really honored and happy about that direction and look forward to being a part of the voice and trying to create it."
