The Timberwolves were already limiting the Timber-Bulls jokes by not being interested in Joakim Noah. But at least they still have Tom Thibodeau, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose and Luol Deng.

The dang jokes with a potential lineup of Deng Adel, Luol Deng and Gorgui Dieng? Those are up in smoke.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Adel, an undrafted free agent from Louisville, was never likely to make Minnesota’s regular-season roster, anyway. So, the fun would have been limited to the preseason. And Dieng is pronounced Jeng.

Still. Bummer.
