The Timberwolves have agreed to a one-year, $3.75 million deal with free agent point guard Mo Williams, his agency announced Monday.
The deal was first reported by Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski and announced on Twitter by the sports agency, Priority Sports.
1-year, $3.75M for Mo Williams. To #Twolves. Falls in line with the idea to have cap space next summer. Evan Turner didn't want 1-year here.— Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) July 28, 2014
As Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press pointed out on Twitter, signing a veteran backup point guard makes it seem likely that J.J. Barrea is on the way out. Barrea has one year remaining on his current contract, but could be involved in a trade.
So now Wolves will be paying Mo 1/3.75 and likely shipping JJ and 1/4.5 out.— Jon Krawczynski (@APkrawczynski) July 28, 2014
