Minnesota Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas announced changes and additions to the NBA team's staff. In addition to several changes announced in coaching and other staff members, Tony Adams was promoted to Director of Team Security.

Adams has served as a traveling member of Minnesota’s security team for two years. He has also been a member of the Minneapolis Police Department for more than 30 years, where he started assisting with security measures for all Timberwolves home games in 1996.

While on the force in Minneapolis, Officer Adams made it his own personal goal to take steps in bridging the gap between the community and the police department, helping organize a Police Activities League (PAL) — a program for third through 12th graders to encourage participation in sports.
