NBA Free agency began at midnight on Sunday July 1st and the Timberwolves have been somewhat quite.  So far, the only move they have made is bringing back veteran guard Derrick Rose on a one-year deal.  Rose is 29 years old and joined the Timberwolves after being traded to the Utah Jazz and being waived.  The deal is worth $2.1 million.


The Timberwolves have also announced the team has waived center Cole Aldrich.  Aldrich appeared in 21 games for the wolves in 2017-18 and averaged 2.3 minutes during that time. 


The Wolves have made a qualifying offer to bench swingman Nemanja Bjelica and have also reportedly offered Jimmie Butler a max contract.
