Similarities striking between rebuild jobs by Wolves, 76ers

They say NBA teams forge real rivalries in the playoffs, so it's unlikely the Timberwolves and Philadelphia 76ers will ever really build one, barring a change in format or several meetings in the finals of course.

Nonetheless, each team remade around a pair of young stars and a handful of added veterans is popular among ESPN and TNT executives, as witnessed by Tuesday's late 8:30 p.m. tip at Target Center for a national television audience.

The 76ers have young stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons as well as vets JJ Redick, Amir Johnson and Trevor Booker.

• Wolves reserve forward Nemanja Bjelica missed his ninth consecutive game because of a sprain in his left foot, with no indication his return is imminent.

• Lynx star guard Lindsay Whalen provided commentary on FSN's broadcast Tuesday, the second of eight games she will do this season.
