Timberwolves announce coaching, front office hires

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves announced a number of additions to their front office and coaching staffs on Sunday night, including assistant general manager Noah Croom and director of player personnel Brian Pauga.

Croom comes to the Timberwolves after spending the last 12 years as an agent and legal counsel with Goodwin Sports Management, one of the top agencies in the NBA. He is widely known as an expert at navigating the salary cap and collective bargaining agreement and has long been well respected in NBA circles for his ability to help facilitate deals. He also served as an assistant GM for the Vancouver Grizzlies.

Pauga follows GM Scott Layden to the Timberwolves from San Antonio. Pauga spent the past nine seasons with the Spurs, where he was director of scouting in 2012 and the GM of the Austin Spurs in the D-League in 2013.
