The Minnesota Timberwolves are a very young team and once the holding pattern for the Kevin Love deal is over it is very likely the team will get even younger. The team beefed up their average age on Monday afternoon by signing veteran point guard Mo Williams.
Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the story on Twitter, not a huge shocker there, and the deal was confirmed by Williams’ agency, Priority Sports.

It is reported that the deal is a one-year deal worth $3.75 million.
Williams will turn 32-years-old in December and will playing in his 12th season in the NBA. Williams has been bouncing around the league since being traded away from the Cleveland Cavaliers midway through the 2010-2011 season.
Most casual NBA fans will know Mo Williams as the point guard on the successful Cavs teams during LeBron James’ first stint with the club. Williams has made one All-Star appearance in his career, which was in 2008-09 while on the Cavs.
Last season, Williams was a member of the Portland Trailblazers and appeared in 74 games, all of which were off of the bench. Williams averaged 9.7 points, 4.3 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game while averaging 24.8 minutes on the court.
