The Minnesota Timberwolves may be adding to their already impressive offseason haul.
Shams Charania of The Vertical reports on Saturday that three-time Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford is in “serious talks” to sign with the Timberwolves once he clears waivers.
The 37-year-old Crawford, who averaged 12.3 points per game in 2016-17, officially secured his buyout from the Atlanta Hawks earlier this week.
The Timberwolves had indeed been mentioned as a frontrunner, and now they are closing in on their veteran heat-check guy to continue to complement their high-upside young core after the acquisitions of Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague, and Taj Gibson earlier this offseason.
