Timberwolves have deal with young center Stiemsma

The SportsXchange

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Greg Stiemsma reportedly have agreed on a one-year deal that will move the second-year center from Boston. The deal is thought to be worth between $2 million and $3 million.

Stiemsma, 26, averaged 2.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 55 games for the Celtics last season.

He was a restricted free agent who had received a $1.05 million qualifying offer from Boston. The Celtics reportedly couldn't offer more than their bi-annual exception of $1.95 million.

He is expected to add depth to the Wolves' interior, behind Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic.
