Timberwolves Eyeing Sean Williams

The Timberwolves are still scouring the free agent market for potential additions, and the latest name to be linked to David Kahn and the T-Wolves is Sean Williams, tweets Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500. According to Wolfson, Williams is a potential target for the Wolves, though he cautions that Kahn is talking to a lot of agents. Given Kahn's activity, Wolfson expects the team to sign another big man at some point before the season, he says in a second tweet.

Williams, 25, was waived by the Rockets earlier this week, but appears to have gone unclaimed, making him an unrestricted free agent. Because the big man was part of the trade that sent Courtney Lee to the Celtics, he's ineligible to re-sign with the Celtics until next July, but he's free to sign with any other NBA team, including Minnesota.

The T-Wolves are also said to be eyeing Anthony Tolliver, Mehmet Okur, and Hassan Whiteside as potential frontcourt targets. If the Wolves hope to sign any player for more than the minimum salary, they'll likely have to move salary in a separate deal to clear cap room.
