MN Timberwolves & Lynx release statement on Derek Chauvin Verdict


A statement from the Minnesota Timberwolves after former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges...

Minneapolis/St. Paul – The following is a statement from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx on the Derek Chauvin trial verdict:
One year ago, George Floyd was murdered, causing unimaginable pain and trauma for his family, the Minneapolis community, and communities across the nation. Our deepest thoughts have been with the Floyd family since this unjust tragedy. Throughout our history, racial and social inequalities have been ingrained in our society. We are hopeful that today’s decision will serve as a step forward, but it does not ease the physical and emotional pain that continues in an environment where systemic racism exists. To our BIPOC community, the Timberwolves and Lynx remain committed to influencing change, promoting impactful action, and using our platform to help heal and unite in pursuit of liberty and justice FOR ALL.
