Taj Gibson signs with Timberwolves

Taj Gibson signs with Timberwolves

Taj Gibson has agreed to a two year, $28 Million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, as Shams Charania and The Vertical first reported.

Gibson will meet up with his former Chicago Bulls teammate Jimmy Butler and coach Tom Thibodeau.

The Thunder acquired Gibson at the trade deadline last season and in his short run with the team he averaged 9.0 points and 4.5 rebounds.

In the 55 games before the trade he averaged 11.6 points and 6.9 rebounds per game with the Bulls. However, he also played an average of 6.1 minutes more in the Windy City.

Gibson almost immediately took over the starting position of the rookie Domantas Sabonis because of his defense and experience.

In the five playoff games for the Thunder, Gibson scored 9.8 points per game while shooting 60 percent.

According to Royce Young, the Thunder did not have a very good chance to bring back Gibson and this move shows that the Thunder are committed to All-NBA Second Team Defensive Player, Andre Roberson.
