The Minnesota Timberwolves announced the promotion of Matt Lloyd to general manager on Wednesday.

Lloyd spent the past two seasons as the club's senior vice president of basketball operations.

Before joining Minnesota, he spent 10 seasons with the Orlando Magic and 13 with the Chicago Bulls.

"We are thrilled for Matt and his well-earned promotion," said Timberwolves president of basketball operations Tim Connelly. "He's a wonderful teammate whose tireless work ethic and positivity have made a huge impact on our organization."

The Timberwolves are coming off a 56-26 season in 2023-24, their best since going 58-24 in 2003-04. Minnesota lost to the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference finals.

Lloyd joined the Magic in 2012 and rose to vice president of basketball operations for his last two campaigns with Orlando. He was the director of college scouting during his last five seasons with the Bulls.
