With injuries to Derrick Rose, Jeff Teague and Tyus Jones, Minnesota signed Canaan for depth purposes. In seven games (one start) covering his two 10-day pacts, Canaan averaged 4.7 PPG and 2.7 APG while shooting an impressive 37% from three. However, with all three point guards healthy, the Timberwolves do not have a fit for the 27-year-old.
Canaan appeared in 19 games for the Suns earlier this season, averaging 7.5 PPG.
While Canaan is free to pursue opportunities for the remainder of the season, the door is open for a possible reunion over the summer, tweets Michael Scotto of The Athletic.
