Timberwolves Sign Forward

The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed free agent forward Eric Paschall to a one-year deal, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

By joining Minnesota, Paschall reunites with former Utah Jazz teammate Rudy Gobert. The 25-year-old played the 2021-22 season in Utah, averaging career-lows of 5.8 points and 1.8 rebounds.

Taken with the 41st overall pick in 2019, Paschall spent the first two years of his career with the Golden State Warriors. He made the All-Rookie First Team in 2019-20, with averages of 14.0 points and 4.6 rebounds. 

The Warriors then dealt the former Villanova standout to the Jazz in the summer of 2021.

Despite his production and playing time going down, Paschall's three-point shooting has been on an upward trend each season. He has improved from being a 28.7 percent three-point shooter his rookie year, to becoming a 37.0 percent three-point shooter in his third NBA season.

Despite parading a twin-tower combo of Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns up front, Paschall should still get some backup four minutes in Minnesota.
