MARCH 19: The Timberwolves’ new deal with Reynolds is now official, according to NBA.com’s transactions log.
MARCH 15: The Timberwolves and rookie swingman Cameron Reynolds have agreed to terms on a multiyear deal, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic (via Twitter). While Charania doesn’t provide additional details on the agreement, Reynolds’ new contract is unlikely to be fully guaranteed after this season.
An undrafted free agent out of Tulane, Reynolds signed with the Kings during the 2018 offseason, but was released before the regular season got underway. After spending most of the season with the Stockton Kings, Sacramento’s G League affiliate, the 24-year-old earned a call-up from the Timberwolves last month.
Reynolds is currently on his second 10-day contract with Minnesota, having averaged 4.3 PPG in six NBA games (14.8 MPG) for the Wolves. That deal is set to expire on Monday night, so the two sides figure to make Reynolds’ multiyear contract official after that.
While there’s no guarantee that Reynolds will earn a spot on the Timberwolves’ 2019/20 roster, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic tweets that head coach Ryan Saunders is a big fan of the youngster. According to Krawcznyski, the club believes that Reynolds’ length and shooting ability could make him a solid rotation player in the future.
Once Reynolds’ new deal is finalized, the Wolves will officially have a full 15-man roster, with all 15 players on standard NBA contracts. As our 10-day contract tracker shows, Reynolds will become the sixth player this season to parlay a 10-day deal into a rest-of-season guarantee from the same club.
