Former Wolves executive Rob Babcock dies at 66

Rob Babcock, a former Timberwolves executive during two different stints spanning more than two decades, died Wednesday at age 66.

He was named general manager of the Toronto Raptors in 2004, but he was fired in 2006 and later returned to the Wolves as an executive for another decade until 2016.

I got to know Rob well during his time with the Wolves and considered him a great friend," said Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor in a statement.

Aaron Witt, a three-star defensive end out of Winona, shared on Twitter his decision to decommit from the Gophers.
