4:05pm: Adrien has officially been waived, the team announced via Twitter.
2:04pm: The Timberwolves are set to release Jeff Adrien, reports Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities (Twitter link). Adrien is on a non-guaranteed contract, but if Minnesota fails to waive him by 4:00pm Central today, that minimum-salary deal becomes guaranteed for the balance of the season. He’s the only member of the Timberwolves without at least a partial guarantee, and the team has been carrying 15 players, as our roster counts show.
This move would free up a roster spot for Miroslav Raduljica, whom some reports say has a deal with Minnesota, and Wolfson suggests the team has Raduljica in mind as it prepares to cut ties with Adrien (Twitter link).
In 17 games with the Wolves this season, Adrien has averaged 3.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 0.9 assists while logging 12.6 minutes per contest. His career averages are 4.6 PPG, 4.3 RPG, and 0.7 APG. His career slash line is .474/.000/.628.
