Timberwolves now have 16 players, one over max

BY foxsports • August 21, 2015

The Timberwolves made the Tayshaun Prince signing official on Thursday. That's good news for Prince and bad news for possibly anyone other than him.

That's because with the signing of the former Piston, Grizzly and Celtic, the Wolves have extended their roster all the way up to 16. The problem with that? NBA rules require only 15 to be on the roster. Minnesota will need to trade or release someone by the start of the season. 

ESPN reported recently that the Wolves were likely to waive Lorenzo Brown, whose contract is non-guaranteed for next season. Obviously, getting rid of him, the only player on the roster with a non-guaranteed deal for next season, would be the intuitive move. The World Wide Leader also reported that Anthony Bennett and Damjan Rudez could be on the block, too.
