The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed free-agent forward Josh Howard, according to an ESPN.com report.

Howard strengthens the injury-depleted Wolves, who are without Chase Budinger, forward Kevin Love, guards Ricky Rubio, J.J. Barea and Brandon Roy.

A nine-year veteran, Howard signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum.

The 32-year-old has averaged 14.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in his career. He averaged nine points and four rebounds last season for the Utah Jazz.
