Timberwolves agree to terms with Gelabale

The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms with French
swingman Mickael Gelabale.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but Gelabale
was expected to join the injury-filled Wolves on Friday after Lazar
Hayward’s 10-day contract expires.

Gelabale has been playing for Valencia in the Spanish league. He
is being brought in to add depth to a team that has been decimated
by injuries to Kevin Love, Brandon Roy, Chase Budinger, Josh Howard
and Malcolm Lee.

Gelabale does have some NBA experience. He played 109 games with
the Seattle SuperSonics from 2006-08. He averaged just over 15
minutes per game in those two seasons before heading back
overseas.

He will be the sixth Timberwolves player with an international
background.
