NBA veterans #Jason Terry and #Josh Childress could be playing for Western Conference squads in the 2017-18 season. Terry might join the Minnesota Timberwolves, who have a few spots left on their roster. Childress, on the other hand, is signing with the Denver Nuggets.

Woelfel's Press Box reported that Terry "arrived" in Minnesota last Sunday. He was set to meet Timberwolves officials (including head coach Tom Thibodeau) and have a workout. Terry spent the previous season with the Milwaukee Bucks. At 39 years old, he had a crucial role in Milwaukee on and off the court. Earlier in the offseason, he expressed the desire to re-sign with the Bucks, but they are not yet granting his request.

If Terry receives a contract from the Timberwolves, it will earn him the minimum salary. The team is already over the salary cap after acquiring the likes of Jimmy Butler and Jamal Crawford, who he might join at the shooting guard position.

Marcus Thornton follows Terry

HoopsHype reported that aside from Terry, his ex-Houston Rockets teammate Marcus Thornton will have a workout with the Timberwolves. The 30-year-old journeyman last suited up for the Washington Wizards. In February, the Wizards traded him to the Brooklyn Nets. A day after the swap materialized, the Nets waived him. The report added that he can earn as much as $2.1 million if he signs a minimum deal.

Childress' NBA comeback

According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders, Childress will be signing a one-year (non-guaranteed) deal with the Denver Nuggets.

When his addition to the Nuggets becomes official, he is making his comeback to the NBA. The 34-year-old began his career in the league when the Atlanta Hawks selected him with the sixth-overall pick in the 2004 draft. He played four seasons for the Hawks, and in his time with them, he was averaging double-digits in scoring.

Childress left Atlanta in 2008 to play in the Euroleague. In 2010, he returned to the NBA but was no longer the same player. During this stretch, he suited up for the Phoenix Suns, Brooklyn Nets, and the New Orleans Pelicans. From 2014 to 2016, Childress played overseas once again. Last summer, he was among the NBA veterans who joined the Big 3. He was with the Ball Hogs and had the role of co-captain.

It is uncertain at this point if Childress has a shot of making it to the Nuggets' final roster. ESPN suggested that there is a possibility he will get cut because his deal is not guaranteed. #NBA Rumors
