Sean Williams and Hassan Whiteside remain "in the mix" for the Timberwolves, according to ESPN 1500's Darren Wolfson.
The Timberwolves need a bargain bin big man and are shopping in the right department. If either player were signed, he would offer no fantasy value and would be an insurance policy behind Nikola Pekovic and Greg Stiemsma. Wed, Sep 19, 2012 08:10:00 AM

The Timberwolves still have unrestricted FA Sean Williams "on the radar."

It seems that Minnesota is interested in virtually any and every big man who may be willing to sign for the veteran's minimum as the team looks for a backup behind Nikola Pekovic and Greg Stiemsma. Minny has been linked to Williams, Anthony Tolliver, Mehmet Okur and Hassan Whiteside most notably, but none of those players listed would offer fantasy value barring injury to Big Pek.

The Timberwolves are said to be interested in taking a look at recently waived F/C Sean Williams.

GM David Kahn is supposedly talking to a number of agents about adding a post-player to Minnesota's rotation, but to sign anyone for more than the league minimum, they would have to trade or cut a guard first to make a signing fit under the salary cap. Anthony Tolliver, Mehmet Okur and Hassan Whiteside have also been mentioned as potential big man targets for the Timberwolves. Williams would not offer any fantasy value this season in Minnesota.

The Heat "are bound to consider" Sean Williams after he was waived by the Rockets, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Rockets waived Sean Williams on Monday, according to Marc Stein of

Stein added that Miami has expressed interest in the former Boston College Eagle. While Williams was once viewed as one of the most athletic big men in the 2007 draft, he will have a tough time cracking any NBA rotation.

Given the Celtics depleted front court (Kevin Garnett starts at center) the move makes a lot of sense. Williams last played in the NBA for Dallas and has been in the D-League. He would help Greg Stiemsma off the bench.
