If the Wolves do not reach a contract agreement with him before free agency opens this summer, Vanderbilt will be a restricted free agent. That would give the Wolves the right to match any offer that comes in. For his part, Vanderbilt says he likes the vibe around a team that has played much better down the stretch and he doesn’t take for granted that the opportunity he long hoped to get came in Minnesota. “It’s been a rocky journey, but those guys have supported me throughout the whole way,” Vanderbilt said. “They’ve seen me put in the work, so as a teammate when I see guys putting in the work and you see them paying off, it’s a great feeling to see it work out.”
Finch did say he likes the Towns-Vanderbilt pairing in the frontcourt but wants to get more shooting around them to help space the floor and give them room to operate. “I wouldn’t read too much into any of the certain rotations that we’ve got right now,” Finch said. “Part of this is somewhat of learning for me, just trying to figure out how these personnel groupings work together. I thought we blended the lineups better, I thought we started our rotations a little bit better.”
