Wolves' Dante Cunningham won't face charges for terroristic threats arrest -- for now

Cunningham's Thursday mugshot (left) and his Sunday mugshot.
Sunday afternoon, Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham was arrested for allegedly sending his girlfriend threatening electronic messages. That came just two days after he was charged with a felony for allegedly strangling her early Thursday morning.

Despite the terroristic threats arrest, Cunningham posted bail Monday and was released from custody without additional charges being filed. That doesn't mean charges can't be added down the line, however.

The Minnesota Timberwolves All-Arrested team

Not a bad big three: Beasley (left), Big Al, and Rider (right).
Sure, it's not quite on the level of the Vikings All-Arrested team we wrote about a few years ago, but following Dante Cunningham's arrests (the plural is not a typo), the Minnesota Timberwolves can now go eight deep with a squad made up exclusively of players who landed in the crime blotter while playing here.

And you know what? It's not a terrible roster, with a nice mix of interior size and perimeter scoring and decent depth to boot. As coach, you'd just have to make sure to keep a close eye on your scoring wings during roadtrips to Colorado and Washington, if you catch our drift.

Timberwolves' Dante Cunningham arrested for second time in week

Cunningham's latest mugshot
-- Update at bottom --

Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham had a very eventful week. Unfortunately, most everything that happened doesn't bode well for his future employment as an NBA player.

Hours after a Wolves victory Wednesday night, Cunningham was arrested for domestic assault. The next day, he was charged with a felony -- his girlfriend told investigators "she felt like she was being strangled to death" during the alleged Thursday morning assault. That evening, Cunningham posted $40,000 bail, hopped a flight to Florida, and arrived in time to play a key role in the Wolves' Saturday night game in Orlando.

:::: UPDATE :::: Timberwolves' Dante Cunningham arrested for second time in week

Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham has been charged with felony domestic assault by strangulation a day after he was arrested after 4 a.m. at his Medina residence.

Cunningham and his girlfriend started dating last summer, but recently they've been having problems, she told police. They had a particularly heated argument Thursday morning following the Timberwolves 102-88 victory the night before -- after he became angry and left, his girlfriend "locked the bedroom door behind him," the complaint says.

Kevin Love is seriously sad [VIDEO]

The 2013-14 Timberwolves season began with such optimism. Ten years removed from the team's last playoff berth, it looked like the NBA's most downtrodden franchise was finally about to get over the hump.

But after a hot start, the Wolves started losing close games. Unfortunately, they never stopped, and after a heartbreaking defeat at home Sunday against Phoenix -- the Wolves led by 22 in the second but characteristically crumbled in crunch time -- the meaningful portion of this season's schedule is over. As has been the case every year since the MV3 Western Conference Finals run of 2004, there will be no playoffs this spring for the Pups.

Wolves Podcast: The Wes Effect [AUDIO]

Categories: Timberwolves
We discuss this underappreciated truth: the Wes Johnson trade was one of the worst moves of the David Kahn era.
In this episode of the Wolves Podcast, yours truly and fellow Timberwolves diehard William Davis look at how draft bust Wes Johnson continues to negatively impact the organization two years after his departure.

It's not Wes's fault, of course, but after he washed out with the Timberwolves, David Kahn had to include a first round pick in a trade just to move Johnson's contract to Phoenix. As a result, Phoenix will get the Timberwolves' first round pick if the Pups make an unlikely surge into the playoffs.

T-Wolves Podcast, episode 3: On Shabazz and silver linings [AUDIO]

Categories: Timberwolves
Flea was right!
Sure, this Timberwolves season has been a disappointment... at least so far.

But in this episode of the T-Wolves Podcast, yours truly and fellow diehard T-Pups fan William Davis (of AM950 fame) try to focus on the positive. Like, you know, the fact that tomorrow night in Sacramento, the team will play its first meaningful March game in nine freakin' years. Or that following his breakout performance during a must-have win in Phoenix, it looks like they might actually have something in rookie Shabazz Muhammad. Or the reality that with the Pups about to enter a stretch where they play eight losing teams in a row, they probably won't be underdogs again until March 19.
