Timberwolves name Gersson Rosas president of basketball operations

The Minnesota Timberwolves hired Gersson Rosas on Wednesday as their new president of basketball operations, ESPN reported.

"Minnesota is going to find how forward-thinking, how hard working and how talented he is at putting together a winning team".

Rosas has worked for the Rockets for 16 years.

He got a glowing send off from his former employer, with Rockets GM Daryl Morey even joking about how he wished Rosas had gone to work for a team in the Eastern Conference.

Officials said reinforcements have been rushed to the spot and the injured have been shifted to a civil hospital in Gadchiroli . "Anguished to know that our 16 police personnel from Gadchiroli C-60 force got martyred in a cowardly attack by naxals today".

Rosas, a native of Bogota, Colombia, will become the NBA's first Latino top basketball executive.

Rosas replaces Tom Thibodeau in the Timberwolves' top decision-making position, inheriting general manager Scott Layden and interim coach Ryan Saunders. The short stint did earn him the honor of becoming the first Latino general manager in National Basketball Association history. Seeking stronger collaboration between the basketball and business sides of the organization and a younger, more innovative leader, Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor opened up the search as soon as the regular season ended. Ryan Saunders was named interim head coach after Thibodeau was sacked and the team has not yet decided on a permanent replacement.

Rosas was one of four candidates that formally interviewed for the job, joining Brooklyn's Trajan Langdon, Denver's Calvin Booth, and ESPN's Chauncey Billups.

After making the playoffs past year for the first time since 2004, the Timberwolves regressed on their way to a 36-46 finish.
