Timberwolves assistant coach Rick Brunson resigns

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota Timberwolves assistant coach Rick Brunson abruptly resigned Tuesday and the team said he had fallen short of meeting its "high standards of conduct" amid reports he had acted improperly toward women.

The Timberwolves announced Brunson's resignation in a one-sentence release and later sent a statement about the 45-year-old former NBA player.

"Our entire organization - made up of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Minnesota Lynx and Iowa Wolves- is deeply committed to creating a safe work environment for our employees, partners and fans," the team said. "We work to maintain high standards of conduct and expect our staff to lead by example. We did not believe Mr. Brunson's conduct was consistent with those standards."
