The Timberwolves are adding a guard.

No, not Kyrie Irving.

Marcus Georges-Hunt.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

Georges-Hunt is a borderline NBA player. After going undrafted out of Georgia Tech last year, he signed a 10-day contract with the Heat then played for the Magic.

Orlando waived him, but the waiver process encapsulated his place in the league. Bobby Marks of ESPN:

I wouldn’t be surprised if Georges-Hunt is getting a standard contract or two-way contract from Minnesota. Either is plausible.

At 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds, Georges-Hunt is a big guard who shot 3-pointers well in the D-League last season. If he sustains that – even with limited playmaking and athleticism – he’ll stick in the NBA long enough to show whether or not his size can translate to good defense at that level. If either skill doesn’t hold up, he’ll wash out.
