A-Rod Accidentally Leaks Tim Connelly Hire
Its official, Tim Connelly is the Minnesota Timberwolves’ new President of Basketball Operations. But before Woj and Shams could get their tweets sent out on the subject, Wolves’ minority owner, Alex Rodriguez “accidentally” leaked the official announcement in his Instagram story.
Cool office, Alex. What’s that on your screen?

Connelly will sign a 5-year, $40M-plus deal that includes ownership equity, sources said. Massive deal and franchise changing move for the Timberwolves.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) May 23, 2022
Underneath the “Press Release” headline at the top of A-Rod’s screen, it reads “Minnesota Timberwolves Name Tim Connelly as President of Basketball Operations“. Was it staged or was it an honest mistake by Rodriguez? I want to believe he did it on purpose because that would be the coolest thing a Minnesota professional sports team owner has ever done in this town. The photo has since been deleted from A-Rod’s Instagram story.
