Turiaf signs with Wolves for two years, $3.2 million

MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Timberwolves have finalized their deal with free-agent center Ronny Turiaf, the team announced Thursday.
Turiaf’s agent Mark Bartelstein confirmed Turiaf’s contract is worth $3.2 million over the next two seasons. An eight-year veteran joining his seventh franchise, Turiaf comes from the Los Angeles Clippers as an unrestricted free agent.
The deal was first reported a week ago, but the Martinique native was out of the country until recently, delaying the actual signing.
For his career, Turiaf has averaged 4.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 16.8 minutes per game. Last season in Los Angeles, he appeared in 65 games and averaged 6.2 points and 5.5 rebounds an outing.
