News: The Minnesota Timberwolves and free-agent guard Mo Williams have agreed to a one-year deal worth $3.75 million.
Impact: Williams' agency, Priority Sports, announced the agreement on Monday. Williams is coming off an up-and-down season with the Portland Trail Blazers, but the Timberwolves see the veteran combo guard as an ideal pairing with rookie Zach LaVine on the team's second unit. Williams averaged 9.7 points last season for his lowest total since his rookie year in 2003-04. He turns 32 in December.

News: Williams agreed to a one-year deal with the Timberwolves worth $3.75 million, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
Impact: The 31-year-old opted out of his deal with the Blazers in order to seek a longer contract, but the market for his services was not overly strong. Despite averaging 9.7 points and 4.3 assists last season, Williams is no longer the player he once was. He shot just 41.7 percent from the field last season and has been limited by injuries in recent years. Still, he should step into a consistent role as the Wolves' backup point guard behind Ricky Rubio. Williams saw 24.8 minutes per game last season - the lowest since his rookie year - and should play similar minutes in 2014-15.

News: Love will not play for Team USA in the upcoming World Cup because of his current unsettled situation with the Timberwolves, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: With trade rumors swirling after Love indicated he wouldn't sign a contract extension with Minnesota after next season, Love may find a new team by the time Team USA begins playing next month. If Love were to get hurt, it may hinder his ability to influence his next destination since he may agree to a contract extension in a trade.

News: Chicago is offering Doug McDermott, Nikola Mrotic and Taj Gibson in a deal for Kevin Love, Sheridan Hoops reports.
Impact: There have been media reports in the past week that both the Bulls and Cavs have increased offers for Love (with the Cavs willing to put Andrew Wiggins into a deal). It may take a while to sort out the Love trade sweepstakes, as the Bulls can't finalize a deal for another 29 days because McDermott and Mirotic signed their rookie contracts. NBA rules prevent rookies from being traded within 30 days of signing their contracts. However, Wiggins hasn't signed his rookie contract, which could make the Cavs press the T-Wolves to make a decision soon. It seems more likely that the trade saga will drag on into August, when both teams can easily trade rookies without any restrictions.

News: Cleveland is working to acquire non-guaranteed contracts that could be used in a trade for Love, Yahoo! Sports reports. Cleveland would trade Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a future first-round draft pick along with another player to provide cap relief in a potential deal, the report adds. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have also increased efforts to trade for Love, ESPN reports.
Impact: The Yahoo! Sports report also mentions the Denver Nuggets as another team in the mix. With Cleveland willing to trade Wiggins and approaching a third team to add non-guaranteed contracts to the mix, it sounds like the two sides are close. Love could be traded soon as a result. One wrinkle in the trade talk is if the Cavs sign Andrew Wiggins to his rookie contract this week. If so, then he can't be traded for 30 days which could prolong the trade talks, although the Cavs may ultimately need to sign him to lock his salary into the trade.

News: The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Robbie Hummel.
Impact: Bringing Hummel back gives president and coach Flip Saunders a shooter off the bench with the ability to play multiple positions. He averaged 3.4 points in just over 12 minutes per game as a rookie last season.

News: Hummel has agreed to a one-year contract with the Timberwolves, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Hummel averaged just 3.4 points and 2.5 rebounds over 12.4 minutes in 53 games last season, but he did get some added playing time toward the end of the year. He didn't do much with the extra minutes from a fantasy perspective, and will likely need to fight for a spot in the Minnesota rotation.

News: Dieng averaged 11.5 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.8 steals, and 1.7 blocks in six games at the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: Dieng was impressive in summer league play, and he seems primed for a more regularly consistent role from the start of his sophomore season after spending much of his rookie year buried on the bench. Expect him to see ample playing time in 2014-15 regardless of whether Kevin Love is traded or not.

News: Muhammad averaged 16.2 points (37.1 FG, 44.4 3Pt, 73.5 FT), 5.8 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.2 blocks and 1.6 turnovers in five games at the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: Muhammad's shooting percentage wasn't amazing, but overall it was a promising display from the soon-to-be sophomore, and it's possible he'll be able to earn a slightly larger role in 2014-15 if he's able to continue to improve his game.

News: The Cavaliers continue to pursue Minnesota All-Star Kevin Love.
Impact: The latest development is that No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins could be included in a blockbuster deal.

News: A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors have restarted trade talks for All-Star forward Kevin Love. The person requested anonymity because both teams are not publicly commenting on trade discussions.
Impact: The two teams had been going back and forth with proposals involving Love since before the draft. But the Warriors' reluctance to include shooting guard Klay Thompson in any package to Minnesota was considered a deal-breaker for the Timberwolves.
