What can the NBA’s No1 draft pick expect when they arrive at the Minnesota Timberwolves?

“One of our goals and focuses in our organisation is not only making players the best they can be but the best people they can be,” says President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas.

“That involves things that are not only near and dear to their heart but getting to know who those individuals are, being passionate, about their craft and their game is incredibly important.”

Rosas, who spoke to At Home With Leaders co-hosts Matthew Stone and Steve Gera, also discussed:

– Why he thinks the Wolves must reflect their wider community [9:30];

– How the team will build upon their ‘franchise cornerstones’ Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell [21:30];

– The team’s ongoing process of cultural evaluation [25:30];

– Rosas’ meetings with the team’s prospective new owners [28:30].
