T-Wolves sign Vanderbilt, reportedly ink McLaughlin to 3-year deals
The Minnesota Timberwolves are putting the finishing touches on their offseason, coming to agreements on new deals for a pair of their restricted free agents.
Forward Jarred Vanderbilt agreed to a three-year, $13.8-million contract, his agent told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Guard Jordan McLaughlin also agreed to a three-year contract, sources told Wojnarowski.
The 22-year-old Vanderbilt was initially drafted 41st overall by the Orlando Magic in 2018 before heading to the Denver Nuggets in a draft-day trade. In three mostly injury-plagued seasons split between Denver and Minnesota, the Kentucky product tallied 4.1 points and 4.3 rebounds in 13.6 minutes per game.
McLaughlin, 25, played with the Timberwolves on two-way contracts in each of the past two seasons. In 81 total appearances, the 5-foot-11 point guard averaged six points, 3.9 assists, 1.9 rebounds, and a steal in just under 19 minutes per contest.
