Joey Graham Worked Out For Timberwolves

The Timberwolves' search for a wing player has them looking at a former first-round pick that hasn't played an NBA game since the 2010/11 season. According to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune, the Wolves had Joey Graham in for a workout on Wednesday, as well as James Anderson, who has since agreed to rejoin the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

We had previously heard that Anderson would be coming in to work out for the club, but Graham's name is a new one. Minnesota has also worked out Lazar Hayward within the last week and may still have interest in French forward Mickael Gelabale, as the team looks to replace Josh Howard, who was released after suffering an ACL injury. A move isn't expected until the new year.

Graham, who was drafted 16th overall by the Raptors in 2005, spent six NBA seasons in Toronto, Denver, and Cleveland, before playing in the D-League and overseas following the lockout. For his career, he has averaged 5.9 PPG and 2.8 RPG with a .483 FG% in 377 contests (16.2 MPG).
