Jordan Bell believes he can bring ‘championship mentality’ to Timberwolves
Jordan Bell strongly believes that he could bring a lot to the table for the Minnesota Timberwolves if ever his move gets official later this month. Bell believes that he could bring championship mentality to a Timberwolves squad who struggled to find an identity last season.
While the move is still unofficial at this point, Bell is already looking forward to his move to Minnesota. In fact, the 24-year-old is excited to share his championship experience in Minnesota, having played in the finals in the past two seasons.
“I’ll take what I learned from Golden State,” Bell said via Mark Medina of The Mercury News. “I can bring a championship mentality and I know the stuff you go through with the ups and downs of a long season like that. I take what I learned from that team and try to share that experience.”
Bell, who was selected 38th overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, played limited minutes for the Warriors last season. He averaged 3.3 points in just 11.6 minutes per game. He pointed out that one of the reasons why he chose Minnesota is the promise from head coach Ryan Saunders that he would get a lot of opportunity to showcase his skills.
Bell believes that the Timberwolves are heading into the right direction and have something special ahead of them under Saunders. His move to the Minnesota will be official if the Warriors decline to match the offer sheet that he is expected to sign when the free-agency moratorium ends on July 6.
