FEBRUARY 11: The Timberwolves issued a statement on Sunday announcing that Canaan’s second 10-day deal is official.
Ten-day contracts must span at least three games, so Canaan’s new deal will actually span three extra days, through February 22, since it covers the All-Star break.
In five games (one starts), Canaan averaged 6.0 PPG and 3.6 APG for Minnesota. The Timberwolves inked Canaan to his first 10-day pact at the end of January amid a series of injuries to Tyus Jones, Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose. The Timberwolves will have to decide on whether or not to sign Canaan for the remainder of the season once his second 10-day deal ends.
Before he joined Minnesota, Canaan spent time with the Suns in each of the past two seasons, playing 19 games during the 2017/18 season before he was waived. Canaan appeared in 19 games once again with Phoenix before he was waived earlier this season.
The 27-year-old has appeared in 229 total NBA games in six seasons, averaging 8.3 PPG and 2.0 APG.
