Sport Towns stunned after Timberwolves fire president of basketball ops
Rents rise the most for 13 years as tenants flock back to UK cities
According to new analysis from Zoopla, rents in major UK cities and towns outside London increased by 5 per cent in the year to July, reaching an average of £790 per month. This was up from £752 a year ago, meaning renters are paying an average of £456 more per year, with those in Nottingham, Newcastle and Bristol seeing the biggest hikes.In contrast, rents are still falling in London but that pace of decline has eased and prices may soon start to rise again after the supply of homes to let in the capital shrunk 58 per cent in a year.
Karl-Anthony Towns posted a single-word explicit tweet apparently in response to the Minnesota Timberwolves' decision to fire Gersson Rosas.
The Timberwolves parted company with Rosas on Wednesday after just over two years with the NBA team as president of basketball operations.
Reports said Rosas was holding meetings within the organisation as recently as Wednesday morning, meaning his dismissal prompted shock throughout the team – including from two-time All-Star Towns.
Owner Glen Taylor said: "As an organisation, we remain committed to building a winning team that our fans and city can be proud of."
Taylor is in the process of selling the team, with Alex Rodriguez and Marc Lore set to arrive.
The Timberwolves have played only one postseason series since 2004 and showed few signs of progress on the court with Rosas at the helm.
As well as Towns, Minnesota have 2020 first overall pick Anthony Edwards on their roster, but a big front office restructure comes as a surprise as training camp approaches.
