Timberwolves training camp opens this week

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking forward to the end of rebuilding during the 2012-2013 season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves open training camp for the 2012-2013 season this week, and the team is looking forward to shedding the 'rebuilding' tag and contending for a playoff spot.

The young nucleus of Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio and Nikola Pekovic will be supplemented by the additions of Brandon Roy and Andrei Kirilenko to the squad.

The makeup of the team excites Love who told the Star-Tribune:

"I have faith in this team, I have faith in what we've done in this offseason," Love said. "It was definitely a tremendous summer for our team. We have a number of guys who are going to help us ... I do think we have a great shot to make the playoffs."

The Timberwolves will begin the pre-season with an October 10 matchup with the Indiana Pacers. The six-game schedule will conclude with a tune-up against the Milwaukee Bucks on October 26 at the Bradley Center.
