MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have laid off at least 11 business side employees as the effects of the NBA lockout start to sink in across the league.

 

A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press of the moves on Tuesday. The person requested anonymity because the Timberwolves are not discussing personnel matters.

 

The Wolves are at least the third team in the league to start laying off employees. The Charlotte Bobcats laid off at least seven last week, including radio play-by-play announcer Scott Lauer. The Detroit Pistons fired 15 employees earlier this month.

 

The layoffs, at least so far, have not affected Minnesota’s basketball operations staff, which is looking for a new head coach. Mike Woodson for the position on Tuesday.
