SATURDAY, 10:30am: The T'Wolves formally announced the signing.

FRIDAY, 8:25am: The T'Wolves have signed Gelabale to a 10-day contract, his agent confirmed to Shams Charania of RealGM.com (via Twitter). If he plays well, Gelabale will earn another 10-day contract from the Wolves, according to Charania. The Frenchman will take Lazar Hayward's roster spot, after Hayward's 10-day deal expired last night.

THURSDAY, 8:11pm: The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to sign French swingman Mickael Gelabale, the team announced Thursday. It is unclear what the terms of the contract are, or whether it will be a 10-day contract or a deal for the rest of the season.

Gelabale played in 109 games between 2006 and 2008 for the Seattle Supersonics and has played overseas subsequently. His signing helps to shore up depth for the Timberwolves, who have battled various injuries all season.
