The Timberwolves are considering signing another big man.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have already made numerous major changes this offseason, but they're still looking for a big man to bolster their bench, according to Charley Walter of the Pioneer Press. Minnesota has limited options, though, particularly given that it can't offer more than the veteran's minimum on a one-year deal.

While the T-Wolves are sticking with Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic at power forward and center, respectively, the team has mixed things up with its big men. Andrei Kirilenko, Greg Stiemsma and Dante Cunningham have been brought in, plus Derrick Williams is presumably going to see time at power forward this year, too.

Minnesota president David Kahn still believes that the team could use additional size, though, and the team has roster space to use. There aren't many good options at this point in the offseason, but the Timberwolves wouldn't be offering much cash anyways.
