Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn, coach Rick Adelman, and director of personnel R.J. Adelman soon will have a new member of the scouting staff.
Team and league sources confirm that former point guard Will Conroy, who appeared in four games for the Wolves in November and scored one point, will join the front office.
Conroy, 30, is not retiring, the sources say. He's just putting his playing career temporarily on hold.
Conroy's duties will include scouting NCAA games and NBA games and possibly some on-court work. Considering his close relationship with two-guard Brandon Roy, it won't be surprising to see the two work together post-practice.
The Timberwolves gave Conroy $100,000 before he was released to make room for wing Josh Howard.
