It has been quite an offseason for the Minnesota Timberwolves so far. After finishing at the 13th spot in the Western Conference standing last season with a 31-51 record, the Timberwolves were looking to make some changes and improvements this offseason. And they did exactly that. It all started with the signing of Jimmy Butler, as the Wolves acquired him via trade from the Chicago Bulls. In exchange, Minnesota sent Zach LaVine and Kris Dunn to the Bulls and it seems that acquiring Jimmy Butler will finally make the Timberwolves relevant again in the Western Conference. They also added Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson to their roster as they hope to finally make the playoffs next season for the first time since the 2003/2004 campaign.

Fans in Minnesota will probably be glad to hear that they will also have one other, key player, at their disposal next season.

Muhammad in Minnesota for one more season

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported yesterday (Tuesday) that Shabazz Muhammad has agreed to re-sign with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Muhammad and the Timberwolves have reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.6 million deal that will keep the 24-year-old Shabbaz in Minnesota for at least one more year. The 6-foot-6 Muhammad was drafted by the Utah Jazz as the 14th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, but he has played all of his four seasons in the NBA so far with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

He became an unrestricted free-agent earlier this offseason, as the Wolves rescinded their qualifying offer in order to create more cap space.

But, in the end, it turned out that both sides have agreed that re-signing is the best solution for them. Muhammad will continue to come off the bench next season for Tom Thibodeau's squad, playing behind Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins. He averaged 9.9 points and 2.8 rebounds per game last season in 78 games played for Minnesota.

Childress back in the NBA

Josh Childress is back NBA fans! After spending three years out of the league, Childress has reportedly agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Denver Nuggets. The 34-year-old Childress was the sixth overall pick in the 2004 Draft, drafted originally by the Atlanta Hawks.

The last time he played in the NBA was during the 2013/2014 campaign when he played a grand total of four games with the New Orleans Pelicans.

He played in Europe after that, and last season he played for the San-en NeoPhoenix in Japan. This summer Childress participated in the BIG3 league, and by signing with the Nuggets he becomes the first player to sign with an NBA team after playing in the BIG3. The 34-year-old small-forward holds career averages of 9.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
