Forward Jarred Vanderbilt and guard Jordan McLaughlin re-signed with the team after spending parts of the past two seasons in Minnesota. Terms to their respective deals were not immediately known.
The team also formally introduced newly acquired veteran guard Patrick Beverley and forward Taurean Prince on Wednesday. Another new face also made an appearance on Wednesday with team officials: Leandro Bolmaro, an Argentine-Italian professional basketball player, formerly for FC Barcelona, who was selected by the New York Knicks in the 2020 NBA Draft but had his draft rights traded to Minnesota. He announced this week that he and the team are working on a contract.
Vanderbilt, 22, set career-highs across the board last season. He played in 64 games, including 30 starts, averaging 5.4 points on 60.6% shooting from the field, 5.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1 steal in 17.8 minutes played per game.
McLaughlin, 25, wrapped up his second season with the Timberwolves last year, appearing in 51 games. He averaged 5 points, 2.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1 steal in 18.4 minutes per game.
