MINNEAPOLIS – In the NBA, restricted free agent Juancho Hernangomez is finalizing a three-year, $21 million deal to re-sign with the Timberwolves.
In 14 games with the Wolves since being traded from Denver, Hernangomez averaged 12.9 points and 7.3 rebounds per game, shooting 42% from three-point range.
The Wolves on Sunday acquired center Ed Davis from the New York Knicks in exchange for forward Omari Spellman and guard Jacob Evans, plus a future second-round pick.
Davis is a 31-year-old big man who will likely serve as the primary backup to Karl-Anthony Towns. He broke his leg early last season and only appeared in 21 games for the Jazz, he played in 81 games for the Brooklyn Nets in 2018-19 as a teammate of Wolves PG D’Angelo Russell.
Davis is a strong defensive big man and a fantastic rebounder, known around the league as a fantastic locker room presence and mentor to younger players.
