Timberwolves and Lynx Statement On Passing of Prince

Minneapolis/St. Paul – The following is a statement from Timberwolves and Lynx Owner Glen Taylor on today’s passing of music icon Prince:

“Today we lost a local icon, legend and musical innovator. Prince represented Minnesota with grace, passion and a hunger for helping others. Over the years be became a huge Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Lynx fan, attending numerous games and even treating our Lynx players and staff with a private concert at Paisley Park after winning the WNBA Championship this past fall. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this tragedy, especially the Prince family.”
