Timberwolves waive veteran Bonzi Wells

The Minnesota Timberwolves have waived veteran guard Bonzi

Wells.

Wells has not appeared in an NBA game since 2008. He spent the

past two years playing in China and Puerto Rico and came to Wolves

camp hoping to revive his career. Wells had a history with Wolves

coach Rick Adelman, and Adelman brought him in to give his younger

players some guidance during training camp.

Wells played in both preseason games for the Wolves. He averaged

1.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 12.5 minutes per game in the

exhibitions.

With the maximum 15 players already under contract, Wells was

always a long shot to make the team. The Wolves made the move on

Friday, one day before teams are required to get down to the

15-player limit.
