Rosas was hired to take over the Wolves’ front office in May of 2019. He orchestrated a massive roster overhaul before the NBA trade deadline in February of 2020 that sent Andrew Wiggins to the Golden State Warriors, and brought D’Angelo Russell to Minnesota.
Last year, Rosas dismissed Ryan Saunders as head coach after a 7-24 start, and within hours Chris Finch was named as his replacement to be the permanent head coach.
