Minnesota Timberwolves Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Beached signed a deal Thursday with the Timberwolves, David Aldridge of Turner Sports reports.
Impact: A four-year player at Notre Dame, Beachem is a versatile wing who excels on both ends of the floor. He's coming off a senior season with the Irish where he averaged a career-best 14.5 points per game and shot 36 percent from behind the arc. There's reason to believe that Beachem's skill set makes him a solid fit in today's NBA, but the rookie will have to make the most of his opportunity in summer league and training camp.
News: With Kris Dunn traded to Chicago in the Jimmy Butler deal, Jones looks set to enter next season as the primary backup point guard to Ricky Rubio.
Impact: Minnesota could still make some moves this summer and perhaps sign a veteran point guard, but for now it looks like Jones could see a significant increase in playing time. Jones was quietly efficient last season in limited playing time as he averaged 7.3 assists to 1.8 turnovers per 36 minutes and was eighth on the team in PER. He could surprise this season if he retains the backup point guard role.
