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.
