If veteran guard Alan Anderson will have his way, he wants to close his professional career with his hometown team, the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Associated Press' Jon Krawczynski reported through a tweet that he recently spoke to Anderson, who is working out in Las Vegas. According to Krawczynski, Anderson is interested in going for one last run and he "would love" for it to be with the Timberwolves.

Earlier this month, Anderson had an opportunity to be part of Minnesota's roster.

He worked out for the Timberwolves together with the likes of Trey Burke, Isaiah Canaan, and Anthony Morrow. Unfortunately for the 34-year-old, he is still on the free agency market until now. Anderson played for the Los Angeles Clippers in the previous season. Before his time in Lob City, he suited up for the then-Charlotte Bobcats, Toronto Raptors, Brooklyn Nets, and the Washington Wizards. He also had stints with European and Chinese squads.

No need for Anderson

Sadly, it may be impossible for the Timberwolves to grant Anderson's desire. He is a wing player, and as of the moment, Minnesota already has an excellent group of shooting guards and small forwards. Leading the way are All-Star Jimmy Butler and rising prospect Andrew Wiggins.

Butler and Wiggins' backups are three-time Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford, the returning Shabazz Muhammad, with young talent Marcus Georges-Hunt.

Aaron Brooks to Minnesota

If there is no longer room at shooting guard and small forward, there was some space left at point guard which was used to add Aaron Brooks. According to ESPN, Brooks completed the 17-man roster of the Timberwolves for the upcoming training camp.

Brooks is going to join a point guard unit which features Jeff Teague, Tyus Jones, and Melo Trimble. Teague is the projected starter for Minnesota, which means Brooks has to compete with Jones and Trimble to be the second-stringer at the position. The 32-year-old might have a slight advantage because of his rich NBA experience.

Brooks has played for the Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Denver Nuggets, Chicago Bulls, and the Indiana Pacers.

In the 2016-17 season with the Pacers, Brooks' numbers declined, but he remained an efficient backup to Teague. The two will reunite in Minnesota. Brooks saw action in 65 games for Indiana and averaged 5.0 points, 1.1 rebounds, and 1.9 assists, in 13.8 minutes per contest.
