The Minnesota Timberwolves hired Michael Grady as the team's new play-by-play announcer.

Grady, who was previously with the Nets, replaces Dave Benz in the role.

“I know the fan base already has a sense of excitement about what this team can be, and I’m excited about fanning that flame,” Grady told Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.

Grady served as the sideline reporter and pregame and postgame host for the YES Network over the last five years.
