Timberwolves Sign Guard To Contract Extension

The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed Patrick Beverley to a one-year, $13 million contract extension. 

The Timberwolves acquired Beverley during the offseason, and he has since been an excellent addition to their roster. In 35 games this season thus far, he has averaged 9.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 4.9 assists. 

With that, Beverley's vast amount of experience has allowed him to become a leader in their locker room, so it ultimately makes sense that they have decided to keep him around for another year. In 506 career games between the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, and Timberwolves, he has averaged 8.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. 

After a disappointing season last year, the Timberwolves have improved this season, as they sport a 30-27 record and are in 7th place in the Western Conference. The addition of Beverley to their roster has been one of the reasons for their vast improvement this year. Thus, it ultimately was a no-brainer to sign him to this extension.
