Timberwolves Pursuing Backcourt Depth

The Timberwolves have arguably been the most active and become the most improved team this offseason. And the team appears far from done as Minnesota is pursuing depth at both the point and shooting guard positions, according to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders (via Twitter).

Scotto mentions Aaron Brooks, Anthony Morrow, and Alan Anderson as players currently on the Timberwolves’ radar. None of those veterans played a huge role for their respective teams during the 2016/17 season, but all bring a track record of prior success.

To this point, the Timberwolves have added Jimmy Butler, Jamal Crawford, Taj Gibson, and Jeff Teague to a core that already featured Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony TownsAt this juncture, the team’s focus will be to add depth and veteran leadership. Tyus Jones is the only other perimeter player on the Timberwolves’ roster, so the team figures to be active in this market.

With no real cap space left and the room exception ticketed for Crawford, Minnesota’s aforementioned targets can only sign for the veteran’s minimum.

    I didn’t think Rush was still under contract. Wasn’t it just a one year deal for last year?

    Anthony Morrow hasn’t been playable in years. The Brooks thing makes sense if Tibbs just wants dudes he used to coach. Either way, none of the aforementioned players will provide much on the court outside of spot mins in the regular season/injury relief

      No. They’re basically capped out and have already used the room exception on Crawford. That’s written in the post
