Timberwolves, Lynx cutting pay, staff because of coronavirus pandemic

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Lynx are cutting pay and staff because of the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Both teams are owned by Glen Taylor. The organization said it has temporarily reduced salaries for employees earning $70,000 or more annually and laid off an unspecified amount of its full-time workforce.

The virus outbreak prompted the NBA to halt play on March 11. The WNBA has yet to begin the 2020 season.
