Wolves Updates 9/15 Part 2

Villanova assistant coach Ed Pinckney is returning to the NBA ranks as
an assistant coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves, two sources
confirmed yesterday.

Pinckney, 44, was entering his fifth season as an assistant to Jay
Wright at Villanova, a school he led to the 1985 NCAA championship. He
had developed into a top recruiter and a tutor to the Wildcats’ big men.

Reportedly, the Timberwolves thought they had a deal with Pinckney last

another offer this week and Pinckney accepted, although final details
were being worked out yesterday.

"We’re going to be all right," Brewer said. "We’re going to be a young
