News: Prince won't play in Wednesday's preseason game due to a dental procedure.
Impact: It doesn't appear as if the procedure was anything serious, so Prince should be able to get back on the court in the Wolves' preseason games to follow. The 35-year-old is expected to see some playing time at small forward this season, albeit in a reserve role behind Andrew Wiggins and Shabazz Muhammad.

News: Prince signed with the Timberwolves on Thursday, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Prince will join the Timberwolves on a veteran's minimum deal, adding more depth on the wing to a young roster. Prince, who spent time with the Grizzlies, Celtics and Pistons last season, averaged 7.3 points and 4.2 rebounds per game for Detroit, where he finished the year. While Prince figures to be a part of the regular rotation for Minnesota, he'll likely serve as a reserve behind Andrew Wiggins and Shabazz Muhammad at small forward.
