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.
