Timberwolves' V.J. Beachem: Signs with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beached signed a deal Thursday with the Timberwolves, David Aldridge of Turner Sports reports.

A four-year player at Notre Dame, Beachem is a versatile wing who excels on both ends of the floor. He's coming off a senior season with the Irish where he averaged a career-best 14.5 points per game and shot 36 percent from behind the arc. There's reason to believe that Beachem's skill set makes him a solid fit in today's NBA, but the rookie will have to make the most of his opportunity in summer league and training camp.

Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Likely backup point guard after Dunn trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Kris Dunn traded to Chicago in the Jimmy Butler deal, Jones looks set to enter next season as the primary backup point guard to Ricky Rubio.

Minnesota could still make some moves this summer and perhaps sign a veteran point guard, but for now it looks like Jones could see a significant increase in playing time. Jones was quietly efficient last season in limited playing time as he averaged 7.3 assists to 1.8 turnovers per 36 minutes and was eight on the team in PER. He could surprise this season if he retains the backup point guard role.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Traded to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler and the Bulls' No. 16 pick were traded to the Timberwolves during Thursday's NBA Draft in exchange for the Timberwolves' No. 7 pick, Zach LaVine, and Kris Dunn, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

A similar trade was tossed around almost exactly a year ago during the 2016 NBA Draft, but this time around it's legit, as Butler will reunite with his former coach, Tom Thibodeau. Butler has averaged at least 36.9 minutes over each of the last four seasons and that trend will likely continue since Thibodeau generally leaves his best players on the court for hefty amounts of time, even during the regular season. It's not immediately clear where exactly Butler and Andrew Wiggins will line up on the court, whether at shooting guard or small forward, but both players will seemingly float around each of those positions as they also split play-making responsibilities with Karl-Anthony Towns.
