NBA. Les Timberwolves limogent leur dirigeant

© USA TODAY Sports Les Timberwolves face aux Knicks le 21 février 2021.

Les Minnesota Timberwolves ont licencié mercredi le président des opérations basket, Gersson Rosas. Même les joueurs ont semblé surpris, alors que cette décision intervient à moins d’un mois du début de la saison régulière 2021-2022 de la NBA.

Mais que se passe-t-il à Minneapolis ? « Les Minnesota Timberwolves se sont séparés du président des opérations de basket-ball Gersson Rosas​, a simplement déclaré le propriétaire Glen Taylor dans un communiqué. Nous restons déterminés à construire une équipe gagnante dont nos fans et notre ville pourront être fiers.

Cette décision est surprenante par son timing, car elle survient à une semaine du début du stage de pré-saison pour l’équipe. Et la star Karl-Anthony Towns l’a ainsi exprimé sur Twitter en postant un « wtf… », que l’on peut traduire par « c’est quoi ce bordel… ».

wtf…

Embauché en 2019

Notamment en charge du recrutement, Rosas s’était ainsi penché sur le dossier Ben Simmons, le meneur All-Star de Philadelphie qui a exprimé le souhait de quitter les Sixers.

Âgé de 43 et de nationalité colombienne, le dirigeant avait été embauché par la franchise de Minneapolis en 2019 après des passages chez les Houston Rockets et les Dallas Mavericks.

Sous son ère, les résultats n’ont pas été à la hauteur, car les Timberwolves ont fini les deux dernières saisons dans le bas du classement de la conférence Ouest, manquant à chaque fois les play-offs.
