2013 Summer League | Phone Gallery
July 15, 2013
Welcome to Las Vegas, where the Wolves will compete in the 2013 Summer League tournament. Follow along with the experience, both on and off the court, with this photo gallery compiled on the phone of Timberwolves.com's Mark Remme.
The Wolves' broadcast crew headed over to the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, made famous by the show Pawn Stars, for a video feature that will be posted on Timberwolves.com. Dave Benz brought a pair of autographed Shabazz Muhammad shoes in hoping to pawn them and give the proceeds to the FastBreak Foundation. Here is a view outside the Pawn Stars shop.
