Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Timberwolves named Milt Newton their new general manager on Friday.

Newton succeeds Flip Saunders, and became the seventh man to hold the post in the 24-year history of the franchise. He will be formally introduced at a Tuesday press conference.

"We are pleased to add Milt Newton to our organization." said Saunders, Timberwolves president of basketball operations. "I have followed Milt closely during his career and have always been impressed with his basketball knowledge, work ethic and professionalism. His front office experience in the NBA, as well as his ability to combine analytics evaluation with his basketball playing and scouting background will greatly benefit our organization."

Newton spent the last 10 seasons with the Washington Wizards, most recently as the team's vice president of player personnel. Prior to that, he was instrumental in spearheading the creation of the NBA Developmental League, served for one year as a scout with the Philadelphia 76ers and was also the assistant director for the USA Basketball Men's National Team programs from 1995-99.

The native of the U.S. Virgin Islands who was raised in Washington DC, played at Kansas as a forward from 1985-89 and was a starter for the national champion squad in 1988. He played for Rockford and Grand Rapids in the Continental Basketball Association.
