Knicks 'convinced' Jeff Teague will sign with the Timberwolves

  • Report: Timberwolves sign point guard Teague

Minnesota Timberwolves also received the number 16 pick in that deal, which they used on Creighton centre Justin Patton. Utah reached the postseason for the first time since 2012.

Tyus Jones is now the only point guard on the Wolves' roster.

One of these such shooters could be Joe Ingles, a restricted free agent that should command sizable offers from other teams.

As it stands, with the waiving of Jordan Hill, the Wolves have $19 million dollars in cap space entering July.

"Ultimately we won't really know how to evaluate this trade until we find out which point guard the Timberwolves choose to replace Rubio", wrote ESPN's Kevin Pelton, who gave the Wolves a "B-minus" for the trade, "and how much that costs them". With Hill (16.9 PPG, 4.2 APG) now set to hit free agency in search of a big raise after a strong but injury-plagued season, the Jazz have taken a proactive step to acquire a proven starting-quality point guard rather than handing over the keys to Exum or their other incumbent backups.

Now comes the point of saying who could fulfill these needs.

As a basic first point, Rubio has been a part of trade rumors for years at this point, and the team hasn't exactly needed him in the lineup for the last few seasons with his current performance.

Free agent Jeff Teague has agreed to a 3-year, $57M deal with Minnesota, league sources tell ESPN.

Ricky Rubio has always been a name in trade discussions for seemingly forever when it comes to the Minnesota Timberwolves, and this offseason the team finally pulled the trigger on a big deal. The deal was reported by the Associated Press just minutes after free agency's official 11 p.m. central start time. After Trey Burke flamed out and Dante Exum's National Basketball Association launch got sidetracked by injury, Utah sent a first-round pick to IN for George Hill last summer.

So with basically no cap space left, the Wolves would bring back Shabazz Muhammad to be one of the backup wings and then could bring in a rumored free agent signing from the defending champion Golden State Warriors, Andre Iguodala.

Rubio came to Minnesota something as an unknown, having come over from Spain where had been playing in high-quality games since he was 14. Their signings of Brandon Rush, Jordan Hill and Cole Aldrich were duds, and the team operated below the salary cap, leaving cash on the table. Although, teams will have to pay him more respect and fight harder through screens than they did for Rubio. He'll still be a complementary offensive threat, but with all of the shooters surrounding him on the Jazz, Rubio could flirt with upward of 10 assists per game to go with 10-12 points and two steals.
