Free Agency Diary 2017

Timberwolves Interested In Justin Holiday


The Minnesota Timberwolves have expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Justin Holiday, league sources told Basketball Insiders.

The Timberwolves acquired Jimmy Butler in a draft night trade and agreed to deals with Taj Gibson and Jeff Teague in free agency. Butler and Gibson played with Holiday on the Chicago Bulls. Teague played with Holiday on the Atlanta Hawks.

The 6-foot-6 guard averaged a career-high 7.7 points and 20.0 minutes per game for the New York Knicks last season. Holiday was also one of only 17 players in the league to play all 82 regular season games. The Knicks remain interested in re-signing Holiday.

The Chicago Bulls are also in the mix to sign Holiday.

Holiday, 28, is viewed around the league as a 3-and-D player.
