The agreement reunites Gibson and Tom Thibodeau, who coached the 32-year-old from 2010 to 2015 while both were in Chicago. He provides needed depth to a front court that features Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng.
Thibodeau got his hands on Gibson early in the forward's career and helped mold him into a good National Basketball Association player. The forward averaged 9.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game duirng his tenure in Chicago, and was known as a high-energy rebounder and defender during Thibodeau's reign. So you need him to start?
The Timberwolves' decision to not extend a deal to Muhammad, their only potential restricted free agent, will make him an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The next big move was the free agent acquisition of power forward Taj Gibson.
The Bulls dealt Gibson at February's trade deadline to the Oklahoma City Thunder along with Doug McDermott. Whether or not Taj Gibson starts will depend on Minnesota's needs. The Timberwolves made a deal with the Bulls to acquire three-time all-star Jimmy Butler, as reported by USA Today.
A now former Oklahoma City Thunder player has reportedly agreed to a new deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves. "He's not an energy taker, he's an energy giver". Veteran, veteran, veteran, then the two young guns that they're really building around (in Towns and Andrew Wiggins).
As of Sunday, though, the Wolves have added in Teague a quick point guard whom Thibodeau acquired because he's clever in the pick-and-roll and can get into the lane and collapse opposing defenses. "He has had a terrific career, and he's a two-way player. He's a huge asset on any team that he plays for and a great person on top of it".
