Timberwolves Free Agency: Minnesota Agrees To Terms With Greg Stiemsma, According To Report

The Minnesota Timberwolves have mostly been that team that hasn't been able to sign anybody this offseason. It seemed like the Minnesota Wild of the NHL took all of the signing mojo by bringing in Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, but as it turns out, the T-Wolves have finally made a pretty good deal.

The team has been pursuing center Greg Stiemsma for some time now, and according to Jerry Zgoda on Twitter, they've agreed to terms on a deal with him. There are no contract details at this point. Stiemsma received a $1.05 million qualifying offer from the Boston Celtics, but they've been going through some pretty serious cap issues lately.

Minnesota had their eyes on Stiemsma from the beginning, but they focused most of their efforts on Nicolas Batum, who wanted to come to Minnesota. But the Portland Trail Blazers matched Minnesota's offer for Batum and the Timberwolves weren't able to acquire his services.

Stiemsma averaged 2.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 13.9 minutes per game as a rookie a season ago.
