Ex-Timberwolves Staffer Charged with Burglary, Barred from Team Properties
  • Somak Sarkar, an ex-employee of the Minnesota Timberwolves, has been charged with felony third-degree burglary for stealing 'strategic NBA information'.

  • He has been placed on supervised release with specific restrictions, including no contact with the executive involved and a ban from Timberwolves property.

  • Sarkar was terminated in February for taking a hard drive with over 5,000 files of personal and team data, which he claims was accidental.

  • His legal representation hints at additional undisclosed aspects of the case.

  • Sarkar's previous NBA experience includes roles with the New York Knicks and New Orleans Pelicans before joining the Timberwolves in 2021.

  • His next court appearance is scheduled for May 16, and the Houston Rockets currently have no intention to conduct their own investigation into Sarkar's actions.
