Forbes: Wolves are one of four NBA teams to lose money last year

As David Stern gets set to step down as NBA Commissioner, the league is quite successful. With global initiatives and ever-increasing TV rights contracts, the NBA and its teams are making quite a bit of money.

For the year, 26 of the 30 NBA teams operated at a profit, according to Forbes research.

That list does not include the Timberwolves.

The Wolves, according to the Forbes report, are one of four teams to operate at a loss last year (calculating earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization). 

The four operating losers: 

Brooklyn Nets, -$19 million

Philadelphia 76ers, -$3.8 million

Atlanta Hawks, -$3.6 million

Minnesota Timberwolves, -$2.7 million

Forbes valued the Wolves' franchise at $430 million, which puts Minnesota 26 out of 30 NBA teams. The team's revenue ($116 million) is 27th in the league.
