Veteran guard Michael Redd turned down an non-guaranteed contract offer from the Minnesota Timberwolves this past weekend, a move which surprised the team, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN.
If Redd would have accepted the offer, he would have joined the Timberwolves for training camp without the promise of a regular season roster spot. The 33 year-old shooting guard will now test the free agent market for other offers.
Redd played in 51 games last season for the Phoenix Suns, averaging 15.1 minutes per game. He scored an average of 8.1 points per game while adding 1.5 rebounds. He scored a season-high 25 points against the Houston Rockets on March 18.
Redd became a true scoring threat for the Milwaukee Bucks after only one season in the NBA. Redd averaged more than 20 points per game from 2003-2004 to 2008-2009, only to have his career derailed by various injuries. In the past four seasons, Redd has only played in a total of 112 games.
