Everybody has been in this organization to try and help this organization become better, and that's everyone's main focus".

The transition won't be easy, especially in the beginning, but that's the National Basketball Association, and the Timberwolves have at least 41 games after Tuesday ahead of them. "It's been insane", Jones said.
