Wallace was claimed off waivers by the Timberwolves on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The California product was recently cut loose by the Clippers in the aftermath of Kawhi Leonard's signing and Paul George's deal but he didn't last long on the free-agent market. Wallace had a disappointing season last year, averaging just 3.5 points and 1.6 rebounds over 62 games played. The 24-year-old will look for a fresh start with Minnesota moving forward and will compete for minutes at the point-guard position.
The Clippers waived Wallace on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Wallace was bumped from the roster in the aftermath of the Clippers' impending signing of free agent Kawhi Leonard and deal with the Thunder to acquire Paul George. Though he saw action in 62 games with the Clippers in 2018-19, he struggled to find a foothold in the club's deep backcourt rotation, averaging just 10.1 minutes per contest. The 25-year-old likely won't have to wait long to find a new home elsewhere.
Wallace finished with zero points (0-4 FG) and one rebound in six minutes during Wednesday's 111-105 loss to the Jazz.
Wallace appeared in nine of 11 tilts during the month of February. However, he logged double-digit minutes only five times during this recent stretch while failing to reach double figures in scoring once. In fact, the last time Wallace scored at least 10 points was back on Jan. 12. As a result, he's avoidable across most formats.
Wallace (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Thursday in the Clippers' 123-120 overtime loss to the Lakers.
Wallace has played just four total minutes over the Clippers' past five contests while failing to log any court time in three of those games entirely. He seems to have surrendered a rotation spot to rookie first-round pick Jerome Robinson at this point.
Wallace had two points (1-4 FG), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 14 minutes during Sunday's 106-96 win over the Magic.
Wallace has earned at least 20 minutes just once since recording a season-high 15 points back on Dec. 11. Given his limited role, he's only worthy of consideration in the very deepest leagues.
Wallace finished with 15 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists, four rebounds, and two blocks in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 123-99 loss to Toronto.
Wallace dropped a season-high 15 points Tuesday, taking advantage of the extended playing time. Additionally, he set season-high marks in minutes, assists, rebounds, and blocks. This game was over midway through the third quarter meaning the second unit played out the rest of the game. Wallace has no value and should be left on all waivers given he had failed to score in his three previous games.
Wallace earned three minutes during Wednesday's 96-86 loss to the Grizzlies.
Wallace has seen the court in consecutive contests, this after tallying eight points (4-6 FG, 0-2 FT), three boards, and one dime in 11 minutes during Monday's win over the Pelicans. Wallace has appeared in only 12 games thus far this season while earning double-digit minutes five times. As a result, he's merely a dart throw in daily leagues on nights when a wing player from the team's regular rotation is sidelined.
Wallace (head) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Grizzlies.
Wallace required two stitches on his head following Tuesday's matchup with the Wizards but it was always believed to be a minor hindrance and something that wouldn't pose issues for his availability Friday.
Wallace received two stitches in his head following Tuesday's game against the Wizards, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
Wallace collided heads with opponent Bradley Beal during Tuesday's loss, forcing him out of the contest. Considering he was unable to return and had to get stitches, Wallace's status for Friday's game against Memphis is in question.
Wallace (head) will not return to Tuesday's game against the Wizards, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
Coach Doc Rivers had Sindarius Thornwell take free throws in place of Wallace, effectively ending his night. Wallace should be considered questionable for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.
Wallace collided heads with opponent Bradley Beal during Tuesday's game against the Wizards and was escorted to the locker room, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports.
Wallace stayed on the ground to gather himself until a trainer helped him up. It seems unlikely Wallace will return, but he should be considered questionable to do so until official word arrives.
Wallace was assigned to the G-League's Agua Caliente Clippers on Saturday, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Wallace has played 20 minutes across six games for Los Angeles this season. It appears the organization wants him to get some more run, so he'll be sent to the G-League.
Wallace (hip) generated 11 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal across 19 minutes during the Clippers' 124-76 preseason win over Maccabi Haifa on Thursday.
Wallace enjoyed a strong return from a one-game absence, posting a preseason-high scoring total. The backup guard's exact role once the regular season begins is presently unclear, as the Clippers currently boast a crowded backcourt rotation with players such as Lou Williams, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Milos Teodosic slotted ahead of Wallace on the depth chart. However, the team thought enough of him to match an offer sheet he was tendered by the Pelicans this offseason, so the coaching staff presumably envisions him having a future with the organization in some capacity.
Wallace is sitting out of Monday's practice with a sore hip, and will not play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Nuggets, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
With just one preseason game left, followed by a week off before the regular season starts, the Clippers are likely being cautious with Wallace. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, however more information should come out following Tuesday's contest, as well as while the regular season approaches. At this point in time, he should be considered questionable for next Wednesday's regular season opener against Denver.
The Clippers are matching New Orleans' two year offer sheet to Tyrone Wallace on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Wallace had agreed to a two year, partially guaranteed offer sheet with the Pelicans Monday, but will return to the Clippers after they matched his offer sheet. Wallace turned into a solid rotational piece for the injury-ridden Clippers a season ago, averaging 9.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists over 28.4 minutes despite being signed to a two-way contract. He will look to continue to provide the Clippers with depth at the wing.
Wallace agreed to an offer sheet with the Pelicans on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the deal is for two years at the minimum and is partially guaranteed. Wallace spent last season on a two-way contract with the Clippers, but was a key member of the rotation when injuries occurred. He finished the year playing in 30 games, while averaging 9.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists across 28.4 minutes. Considering the solid play, Wallace understandbly earned interest elsewhere in the league and has now agreed to an offer sheet with New Orleans. However, Wallace is currently a restricted free agent, so the Clippers will have the opportunity to match the offer. Wallace would provide the Pelicans with a strong defender and potential ball-handler in the second unit if his offer isn't matched.
Wallace was issued a qualifying offer from the Clippers on Thursday, Kevin Smith of Real GM reports.
Assuming Wallace remains with the Clippers, his contract will remain a two-way contract. The rookie reached double-digit points in 15 of his 30 games this season while also averaging 3.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists in that same half of his game log. A bigger role -- at least in terms of games played -- can be expected for Wallace next season, although his exact role won't be clear until after the dust has settled on free agency.
Wallace played in 30 games with the Clippers in 2017-18 and averaged 9.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.
Wallace fluctuated between the G League and the NBA this year, but when he was able to see minutes with the Clippers, he contributed superbly. The California product scored in double figures in 15 total games during his rookie season with a career-high 22 points coming at Golden State on Jan. 10. Wallace made a great case to land a contract next season, as his two-way contract with the Clippers expired after this year.
Wallace scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go along with two rebounds, two steals and one assist across 28 minutes during Saturday's 134-115 loss to the Nuggets.
Wallace led all Clippers starters in scoring and made field goals in this one, though he was a non-factor from beyond the arc. His scoring total was the highest since his return to the team after he curiously wasn't signed for the rest of the season as his second 10-day contract ran out in February. Wallace should remain in the lineup Monday against the Pelicans, but this type of production shouldn't be taken for granted -- he'd combined for just 21 points over his previous three contests.
Wallace finished with nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Sunday's 111-104 loss to the Pacers.
Wallace remained in the starting lineup and despite the loss and despite the low scoring numbers, he was able to contribute across the board. The return of Danilo Gallinari is going to impact on his ability to get his shots but he is going to receive minutes down the stretch and could be worth an add if you don't like the player on the end of your bench.
