MINNEAPOLIS -- A person with knowledge of the deal tells the Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms on a deal with Russian guard Alexey Shved.

Shved came to the Twin Cities on Tuesday and reached agreement on a deal, but the terms were not immediately available. The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced.

Shved can play both point guard and shooting guard. He comes to a team with a healthy international roster that includes Ricky Rubio, J.J. Barea and Nikola Pekovic.

The announcement may be delayed because the Timberwolves are also talking with Portland to bring in swingman Nicolas Batum and need to clear salary cap room to make it happen.
