We’re beginning to learn more about the abrupt firing of Timberwolves’ president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Timberwolves announced they were letting go of Rosas just a week before the start of training camp.

According to WCCO news, Rosas was fired for creating a “toxic culture” and having an ‘inappropriate relationship” with a female staffer.

The Athletic went on to report that the team had only learned about the relationship recently but it wasn’t the main reason he was fired but did contribute to the team’s decision to let him go.

In recent days, the organization discovered that Rosas, who is married, had a consensual intimate relationship with a member of the organization, The Athletic has learned from multiple sources. It made several people within the organization uncomfortable, sources said. While this was not the reason for Rosas’ dismissal, it certainly impacted the timing.
