The Iowa Energy have scheduled a press conference for next week to announce they have become the official NBA D-League affiliate of the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to a report from D-League Digest.

The Energy play home games in Des Moines, Iowa, and were formed in 2007. They won the D-League championship in 2011, but have not made the playoffs since 2014.

They most recently had been associated with the Memphis Grizzlies, who are also getting their own D-League affiliate.
