Wolves to host Israeli team in preseason game

Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves will host two preseason games at Target Center this October.

The team announced Tuesday it will face the Chicago Bulls on Oct. 13, followed by an exhibition against a professional club from Israel on Oct. 16.

This is the first time in the franchise's 24-year history the Wolves will host an international team. They traveled to Turkey for a game in 2007, but this is the first matchup in Minnesota against a foreign club. Maccabi Bazan Haifa, which plays in the Israeli Basketball Super League, will also visit the Golden State Warriors on Oct. 11. The team, formed in 1954, is owned by American businessman Jeffrey Rosen.

The remainder of the Wolves' preseason slate and the 2012-13 regular season schedule will be unveiled in the coming months.
