Darko Milicic is auctioning the 2004 NBA championship ring he won with the Detroit Pistons to raise money and awareness for children dealing with the terminal illness Batten's disease.
Owner Glen Taylor is well aware of the Minnesota Timberwolves' long-term rebuilding plan. He is starting to see improvement and likes the core of young players that have been assembled.
Minnesota Timberwolves center Darko Milicic has tipped the ball into his own basket on a jump ball against the Washington Wizards.
Kevin Love had 35 points and 11 rebounds and Darko Milicic had 14 points and 11 rebounds to keep the Washington Wizards winless on the road in Minnesota's 109-97 victory on Thursday night.
Minnesota Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis has been ejected from the game against San Antonio during a five-technical foul spree in the third quarter.

Few things seem to be as certain as the abilities of the latest crop of professional basketball players on draft night. But trips to the green room and golden ticket contracts just as easily can lead to red faces and end-of-the-bench blues, and those feelings are only amplified by the NBA Draft's lottery phase.
When asked if it was a tough decision, Milicic said "no, especially saving the kid's life. A ring is a ring. A ring is going to be around. If that ring can save as many lives as we hope it's going to save, that's unbelievable."
Milicic said it will stay open for about two months before a winner is chosen.
