MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms with free agent forward Jordan Hill on a two-year deal worth $8 million.
The Wolves and Hill came to agreement on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the deal.
Hill averaged 8.8 points and 6.2 rebounds for the Indiana Pacers last year. He is the latest addition to the Wolves frontcourt after adding center Cole Aldrich earlier in free agency.
New coach Tom Thibodeau has made addressing front-court depth one of the team’s top priorities. Now he has Hill and Aldrich to back up Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng.
