Tom Thibodeau likes his veterans.
The new coach/GM/Grand Poobah of the Minnesota Timberwolves has an incredibly talented but young team to work with. A team that has 15 guaranteed contracts on the books for next season. But he’s still willing to look at adding veteran depth, reports Darren Wolfson of ESPN Radio in Minny.
Minnesota could use some help at the two behind Zach LaVine, but it’s hard to imagine they are going to cut Adreian Payne and eat his $2 million salary so they can add Rasual Butler. Those veterans would be helpful to teach professionalism during training camp, but it’s unlikely they make the roster. Or even get a camp invite, this may not be the kind of team that works for them.
