Alex Rodriguez, billionaire Marc Lore enter agreement to purchase Timberwolves

The news of the new potential Timberwolves owner came out of left field Saturday, or perhaps more accurately, the left side of the infield.
Former MLB shortstop and third baseman Alex Rodriguez and billionaire Marc Lore have entered an exclusive letter of intent to purchase the Timberwolves and Lynx from owner Glen Taylor, a team spokesperson confirmed Saturday.

The surprising news seems to settle a question that has plagued the Wolves and their fans for months since it was revealed Taylor was listening to offers last summer — would he sell the team and to whom?

If the sale goes through, the change wouldn't happen overnight.
