The Timberwolves and Lynx have used a cramped space in the basement of Target Center for their practice court and strength and conditioning work. It will have two basketball courts, with the Timberwolves and Lynx each having a primary court, and include additional offices for coaches, scouts and staff, as well as expanded workout areas. The Timberwolves and their sister WNBA franchise the Minnesota Lynx announced Tuesday a partnership with the Mayo Clinic, which will also open a sports medicine clinic adjacent to the basketball areas. The Minnesota Timberwolves have finalized a plan to build a practice facility across the street from their arena in a vacant former movie theater. While practices are closed to the public, the Timberwolves touted their plans to hold youth games and clinics and make the space as accessible and visible to the public as practical in their home on the west edge of downtown. This is part of a redevelopment of the building known as Block E, a failed retail and entertainment complex that opened in 2001 but has been largely empty for years.
