Lazar Hayward has re-signed with the Los Angeles D-Fenders. Hayward was signed by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Dec. 31 and became a free agent on Jan. 18.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms with French swingman Mickael Gelabale. Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but Gelabale was expected to join the injury-filled Wolves on Friday after Lazar Hayward’s 10-day contract expires.
Darren Wolfson: The expectation is still that Mickaël Gelabale will be joining the #Twolves & Lazar Hayward’s tenure is over. But nothing is official yet.
Joan Nielsen: Lazar Hayward is in the Timberwolves’ facility watching. Is not allowed to participate, apparently. No word whether he’s cleared waivers.
Roster Move: #Twolves today waived F Lazar Hayward. Roster now stands at 14. Hayward signed as free agent on Dec 31 appeared in 2 games.
With all contracts becoming guaranteed on Thursday, look for the Wolves to release forward Lazar Hayward. It’s possible they bring him back on a 10-day deal.
Hayward has a friend whom he claims has talked through such a medium to a brother who has been dead for six years. That relationship helped convince him to seek his own answers. “I’ve actually been able to see a spirit,” Hayward said. “I can’t talk to them yet, but I have seen them.” He has spent the past two months pursuing a path of what he calls “meditation and spiritual healing and living in an enlightened state” while also waiting for a road back to the NBA. “I think it helps me cope with some of the things that go on in basketball and just in life,” he said. “It really, really helps me a lot.”
Out of the NBA and out of basketball since Houston waived him in October, the Wolves’ former first-round draft pick has worked recently with two Los Angeles mediums who he says have guided him on a spiritual quest that dates to his childhood. “I’ve always just had a lot of questions spiritually because I always kind of seen stuff when I was a kid and I used to tell friends and they’d look at me and say, ‘Lazar, you might need some help,’ ” he said laughing during a surreal post- practice conversation with reporters. “So they used to make fun of me. I just had a lot of questions because I’ve always just wondered.”
The Timberwolves are bringing back Lazar Hayward to fill the roster spot caused by Josh Howard’s injury. They signed Hayward, a free-agent forward today, with terms of the deal not announced. He had been released by Houston earlier this season.
They’ve also worked out former Wolves forward Lazar Hayward and are interested in forward Mickael Gelabale, a member of the French Olympic team playing in Spain who has an NBA-out in his contract through Jan. 30.

Machado made the Rockets opening night roster when the Rockets waived veteran guard Shaun Livingston on Monday. Rockets coach Kevin McHale had given Livingston extensive praise and playing time last week, but the Rockets opted to go with Machado and Toney Douglas as backup point guards. With the release of Livingston along with the players the Rockets had determined to let go on Sunday — Lazar Hayward, Gary Forbes, Jon Brockman and JaJuan Johnson – the Rockets moved $7.5 million under the luxury tax. All five had guaranteed deals, though just $1 million of the $3.5 million remaining on Livingston’s contract was guaranteed. After the roster moves, the Rockets will be an average of just 23.6-years-old on opening night, with just 1.93 seasons of NBA experience.
Jonathan Feigen: The Rockets trimmed roster to 15 by waiving Shaun Livingston, in addition to yesterday’s decisions — Hayward, Forbes, Brockman and Johnson. Rockets waived five guaranteed contracts today.
