Top Timberwolves News

  • Timberwolves' Kelan Martin: Inks two-way deal with Wolves

    Martin and the Timberwolves have agreed to a two-way contract, Charlie Clifford of WISH-TV reports.

    Martin played in Germany last season, averaging 14.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 25.7 minutes. He spent 2019 Summer League with the Wolves, posting 12.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 21.8 minutes. While those stats don't jump off the page, he impressed the coaching staff enough to earn a two-way contract.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Reaches deal with Minnesota

    Nowell agreed Tuesday with the Timberwolves on a contract that includes around $1.4 million guaranteed in 2019-20 followed by three years of team options, Darren Wolfson of Channel 5 Saint Paul reports.

    The reigning Pac-12 Player of the Year slipped into the second round in the draft in June before the Timberwolves nabbed him with the 43rd overall pick. The Wolves weren't able to get a glimpse of Nowell in the Las Vegas Summer League while he dealt with a minor quadriceps injury, but the team's decision to sign him implies there's no concern about his availability for training camp. The 20-year-old isn't expected to capture a rotation role as a rookie and could move back and forth between the NBA and the G League on a regular basis.

  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Likely to start at power forward

    Coach Ryan Saunders said Tuesday that "there is a strong possibility" that Covington (knee) opens the season as the Timberwolves' starting power forward, Dane Moore of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Covington has worked primarily as a small forward during his NBA career, but his combination of size (6-foot-9, 225 pounds) and shooting ability shouldn't put him at a major disadvantage at the other forward spot. Aside from potentially opening up more rebounding opportunities for Covington, a position change likely won't dramatically impact the 28-year-old's overall production. The Timberwolves' main motivation to shift Covington to power forward would be to open up minutes on the wing for rookie Jarrett Culver and offseason pickup Jake Layman. Covington didn't play after Dec. 31 due to a right knee injury that ultimately required surgery, but he's expected to be back to full health for training camp.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Inks deal with Wolves

    McLaughlin agreed to a two-way contract with the Timberwolves on Saturday.

    McLaughlin, undrafted out of USC in 2018, appeared in 39 games with the G League's Long Island Nets last season. He averaged 15.0 points, 4.6 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals. Joining the Wolves for 2019 summer league, McLaughlin posted 9.9 points, 5.0 assists and 3.9 rebounds in seven games. Per the nature of two-way deals, McLaughlin will spend the majority of the 2019-20 campaign in the G League with the Iowa Wolves.

  • Timberwolves' Naz Reid: Secures standard contract

    Reid, who was initially set to be given a two-way contract, has signed a standard NBA contract with the Timberwolves, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    After a strong showing in Las Vegas, Reid has earned a spot on Minnesota's regular roster. In seven summer league contests, he averaged 11.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists across just 18.6 minutes. He also shot 38.1 percent from deep on 3.0 attempts per game. Reid will compete for backup minutes with Gorgui Dieng, Jordan Bell and Noah Vonleh.

  • Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Could sit LVSL finale

    Okogie's (lower leg) status for Monday's Las Vegas Summer League title game is unclear, Darren Wolfson of Skor North reports.

    Okogie departed Saturday's game with a bruise on his left shin, and while he's considered "fine" by team officials, the Wolves may still opt to sit him out in what's ultimately a meaningless contest.

  • Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Leaves Saturday's game

    Okogie won't return to Saturday's summer league game due to a left lower leg contusion.

    Okogie sustained the injury at some point during the first half and the severity of the issue remains unclear. Jared Terrell started the second half in his absence for the Timberwolves.

  • Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Continues playing well in win

    Okogie finished with 11 points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal across 21 minutes during the Timberwolves' 90-87 win over the Heat in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.

    Okogie is now averaging 12.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 block across 22.3 minutes over four summer league games. However, his shot has been a disappointment overall, as the second-year guard has drained just 31.0 percent of his attempts in the desert. The 2018 first-round pick has a considerable NBA experience advantage on many of the players he's facing after logging 74 games in his rookie campaign, but the same issues that led to a 38.6 percent success rate from the floor last season seem to still be present thus far.

  • Timberwolves' Naz Reid: Double-doubles in win

    Reid posted 15 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT0, 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 26 minutes during the Timberwolves' 90-87 win over the Heat in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.

    The undrafted rookie's strong summer continued Wednesday, and with the double-double performance, he pushed his averages in Las Vegas to 10.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 18.3 minutes (four games). Reid could conceivably make a preseason push for role in the frontcourt rotation this coming season, although he'll be battling several veterans big men with solid track records for positioning.

  • Timberwolves' Naz Reid: Continues solid play in win

    Reid finished with 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists across 21 minutes in the Timberwolves' 100-91 win over the Bucks in the Las Vegas Summer League on Monday.

    Reid remained in the starting lineup on Monday, finishing with a solid stat line. In three games in the LSVL, he's averaged 9.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.3 assists.
