Flip Saunders just keeps making moves.
The Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations reached an agreement Thursday to bring in free agent center Ronny Turiaf to the Wolves on a two-year, $3.2 million deal, Turiaf's agent confirmed to 1500 ESPN's Darren Wolfson.
The 6-foot-10, 249-pound seven-year NBA veteran spent last season with the Los Angeles Clippers in a minor bench role, averaging 1.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in 10.8 minutes per game.
Turiaf's arrival in Minnesota will mark his seventh stop in the NBA. Drafted out of Gonzaga in the second round of the 2005 NBA draft by the Lakers, Turiaf stayed for three season in Los Angeles before bouncing around to the Golden State Warriors, New York Knicks, Washington Wizards, Miami Heat and the Clippers.
The Wolves have not officially announced Turiaf's signing yet. Deals have already been reportedly reached with the Wolves' Nikola Pekovic and Chase Budinger, and free agent Corey Brewer. But like Turiaf, none of those deals have been made official.
When Saunders spoke to reporters Thursday evening after confirming a three-way trade to bring in Kevin Martin, he alluded that an announcement would be made Friday afternoon to introduce one or all four of those deals.
