Date: Team: Pos:

Anthony Brown has agreed to a two-way contract with the Wolves.

Brown will develop his game in the G-League next season, but can spend up to 45 days with the Wolves if needed with this two-way contract. Brown has NBA career averages of 4.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 0.7 treys with the Lakers, Pelicans and Magic.

According to Darren Wolfson of ESPN, The Mavericks, Pacers and Heat have all expressed interest in Brandon Rush.

Rush is 32, but injuries have really derailed his career. Despite playing 21.9 minutes per game with the Wolves last season, he averaged just 4.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.9 treys. He likely won't have much fantasy value regardless of where he lands.

The Wolves are working on a five-year extension for Andrew Wiggins according to head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau.

The extension would be worth nearly $148 million, but it wouldn't kick in until 2018-19. Wiggins has already established himself as an elite scorer with a career-high 23.2 points per game last season, but Thibodeau said he wants to see him become a "complete player" and believes Jimmy Butler will help with his development. Wiggins was only a 10th-round value in standard leagues last season due to a lack of peripheral stats, but he's still only 22 and is just scratching the surface of his potential.

Jamal Crawford says he feel "rejuvenated" after agreeing to a two-year, $8.9 million deal with the Wolves.

"I feel like 27," Crawford said. "I feel great, I really do. I take care of myself. I never really get out of shape. I feel I can play another four, five years at this level without a doubt." This isn't the first time Crawford has said he will keep playing in his 40s, but we wouldn't rule it out based on how well he takes care of himself. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he wants Crawford to be a "spark coming off the bench," and we expect him to have a role with minutes in the 20s. The 37-year-old veteran averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game last season.

The Hornets have shown interest in free agent Jordan Hill.

Hill is coming off an extremely disappointing 2016-17 campaign. He appeared in only seven games for Minnesota, averaging 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds. However, back in 2015-16, Hill averaged 8.8 points and 6.2 boards in 20.7 minutes over 73 games for the Pacers. The Hornets have one roster spot remaining and may be willing to offer Hill the veteran's minimum in the hopes he can bounce back.

Jamal Crawford has cleared waivers and is free to sign a two-year, $8.9 million deal with the Wolves.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Crawford could sign as soon as this week. The 37-year-old veteran will be used as a combo guard off the bench behind Jeff Teague and Jimmy Butler, but likely won't be anything more than a low-end fantasy contributor. Crawford averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game last season.

According to Darren Wolfson of KSTP.com, the Wolves are shopping Cole Aldrich.

Specifically, the Wolves are trying to convince the Nets to take on his contact in a salary dump. Brooklyn will obviously need some compensation in return, so we'll see if Nets GM Sean Marks can work his magic again after getting two drafts picks in the DeMarre Carroll salary dump on Saturday. Aldrich is set to make $7.3 million next season and a non-guaranteed $6.9 million in 2018-19, and given Brooklyn's lack of depth up front, Aldrich would likely be looking at decent minutes if he's traded to the Nets.
Jul 9 - 12:00 PM

Jamal Crawford plans to sign with the Wolves, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

The Vertical reports that it'll be a two-year, $8.9 million deal with a player option in the second season. After the Wolves spent big on Taj Gibson and are already going to give Karl-Anthony Towns 37-39 minutes, they really needed to fill out their backcourt rotation. Crawford fills a need there and should be looking at minutes in the mid-20s. The 37-year-old guard could actually make a run as the Sixth Man of the Year due to the lack of bench scorers on what should be a contending team.
Jul 8 - 6:45 PM

Jamal Crawford is in serious talks to sign with the Timberwolves, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Wolves desperately need some depth in the backcourt and are dying for a shooter, so Crawford would be a terrific fit. The 37-year-old guard has showed no signs of slowing down, playing in at least 26 minutes per game in each of his last three seasons. He still has to clear waivers before anything is official, but the Wolves may be out in front here.
Jul 8 - 6:21 PM

According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, Jamal Crawford would sign with the Cavs if they were willing to offer him the full mid-level exception.

Crawford secured his buyout from the Hawks on Friday and is now an unrestricted free agent. Multiple teams, including the Lakers, Warriors, Wolves and Wizards, are interested, but Crawford's preference is to play with the Cavs. The issue is salary. Crawford wants Cleveland's full mid-level, which is $5.2 million. However, the Cavs want to use part of their exception to sign Cedi Osman to a contract. Cleveland acquired Osman on draft night back in 2015 and would like to bring him stateside for the 2017-18 season.
Jul 8 - 10:02 AM

Taj Gibson was arrested early Thursday morning for driving with a suspended license.

Gibson, who agreed to a two-year, $28 million deal with Timberwolves last week, was pulled over after allegedly making an illegal U-turn at approximately 2:45 a.m. He was charged with misdemeanor aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Gibson's first court date is set for September 1st.

Jamal Crawford and the Hawks have come to terms on a buyout, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

The Hawks GM didn't even mention Crawford when the trade was official, so this news was coming sooner or later. Crawford is getting interest from basically every competitive team with the Cavs, Warriors, Wolves, Wizards and others coming up as suitors. He is 37 years old, but he could still compete for Sixth Man of the Year on any team.
Jul 7 - 6:36 PM

General manager Travis Schlenk mentioned Diamond Stone and a draft pick, but not Jamal Crawford in a statement about the trade on Thursday.

Well, that's interesting. Basically every team with a chance has been rumored to be in on Crawford with the Cavs reportedly getting some interest today. The Hawks and Crawford should reach a buyout agreement at some point this month, but it may require some negotiation because of Crawford's guaranteed money for 2018-19.
Jul 6 - 7:00 PM

Jamal Crawford will join the Hawks as part of a three-team trade with the Clippers and Nuggets.

Crawford was thrown into the deal to make the numbers work, and it's been widely reported that he won't be in Atlanta's plans. He's already been linked to the Warriors and Lakers, so he should have a strong market once he negotiates a buyout with the Hawks. Crawford is 37 years old, but he's said many times that he plans to play for several more seasons. In 2016-17, the veteran combo guard averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game.
Jul 4 - 11:52 PM

Justin Patton underwent successful surgery to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot on Tuesday, and he is being listed as out indefinitely.

Patton was taken with the No. 16 pick in the 2017 NBA draft (the pick that was acquired from Chicago in the Jimmy Butler trade), so this is an unfortunate start to his career in Minnesota. He'll obviously miss all of summer league, and unfortunately, this is an injury that tends to involve a very slow recovery process; so we might not see Patton make his NBA debut until very late in the season. As of right now, he's completely off the radar in all re-draft formats.
