Timberwolves Dab Into Free Agent Market
This past week saw the Minnesota Timberwolves dabbing into the free agent market.
The more-publicized transaction has been the effort of signing French swingman Nick Batum from Portland. Reports have been made that the framework of a 4 year, 45 million dollar deal have been finalized between the Wolves and Batum’s agent. Other reports state the only way Batum will come here is if a sign-and-trade deal is executed.
The other confirmed free agent who signed with the Wolves is guard Brandon Roy. You may remember Roy as the player who was traded away after the Wolves picked him in the first round of the 2006 draft. His deal is worth 10 million dollars over 2 years; only the first is guaranteed due to Roy’s knee problems.
Roy originally filed for retirement last season after only 5 years in the league due to the health of his knees (lack of cartilage).
