The Minnesota Timberwolves still need some additional big man depth, and their free-agent options are starting to get a little slim. One potential target could be restricted free agent Robin Lopez of the Phoenix Suns, according to a tweet from Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN:
I wouldn't rule out Robin Lopez for the #Twolves. Suns have bigs, plus MN had talks w/ them in Batum 3-way scenarios.— Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) July 21, 2012
Lopez has been inconsistent in Phoenix, but he's a legitimate seven-footer and could bring energy to the Timberwolves bench. In four years with the Suns, he averaged 5.8 points on 52 percent shooting and grabbed 3.3 rebounds per game.
The Suns have extended Lopez a qualifying offer of just over $4 million.
