Darren Wolfson: It looks like restricted free agent Jordan McLaughlin will eventually be back. He's got some league-wide interest but I don't foresee an offer sheet coming anytime.
The Timberwolves are considering bringing back one of their two-way players from last season. The Wolves and point guard Jordan McLaughlin have discussed a new contract, a source said, with the source adding those talks are ongoing.
Beasley, Hernangomez and McLaughlin are restricted free agents and Johnson has a $16 million player option. “We obviously are very, very happy with the things that we were able to see from those guys that are free agents this summer,” Ryan Saunders said. “They’ll continue to be priorities. Gersson, we work closely, and it has been a great partnership of getting guys that fit our time line, fit the system, the style of play that we want to play and guys that fit around Karl and D’Angelo.”
Jordan McLaughlin: Excited to be joining the @Timberwolves this season! Thank you for this opportunity and I look forward to contributing to the vision. 🙏🏽🏀 Jon Krawczynski: McLaughlin has signed a 2-way contract. Good opportunity for him on a PG-thin team after he played well in Summer League.
