Timberwolves Finalize Gibson and Teague Contracts
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have finalized contracts with power forward Taj Gibson and point guard Jeff Teague, two complementary additions to a roster that has undergone a huge overhaul.
Gibson and Teague signed their deals on Monday before an introductory news conference at team headquarters. Gibson (two years, $28 million) and Teague (three years, $57 million) agreed to terms earlier this month during the moratorium period for free agency.
Gibson (Chicago) and Teague (Atlanta) were both first-round draft picks in 2009. Between them, they have 127 games of postseason experience.
The Wolves have also agreed to terms on a two-year contract with shooting guard Jamal Crawford, but to comply with the salary cap he can't be signed yet until clearing waivers.
