The Minnesota Timberwolves have claimed guard Tyrone Wallace off waivers, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Wallace was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers, along with guard Sindarius Thornwell, two days ago.
Wallace appeared in 62 games last season, averaging 3.5 points in limited action.
He was on a non-guaranteed minimum-salary contract that becomes partially guaranteed for $300,000 in September. His contract becomes fully guaranteed in January.
The Timberwolves are still deciding on what to do with the backcourt. Jeff Teague is expected to return as the starting point guard, and Shabazz Napier was acquired in a trade with the Golden State Warriors.
But third-year man Tyus Jones signed an offer sheet with the Memphis Grizzlies. It is yet to be seen if the Wolves will match.
