Veteran free agent and former Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham has agreed to re-sign with New Orleans, according to a report by the Vertical this afternoon.

The Wolves had aggressively pursued and have been waiting for a decision that finally came today.

They now likely will turn their attention to players such as Gerald Green and Thomas Robinson for the wing or frontcourt and C.J. Watson, Aaron Brooks or Kirk Hinrich (who didn't play last season) as a backup point guard.

Cunningman played the last three seasons in New Orleans and had found a place there in the Pelicans' rotation.  The Pelicans signed him to a one-year, $2.3 million deal, the Vertical reported.

His re-signing follows the Pelicans' signing of free agent Tony Allen last week as well.

Cunningham's choice leaves the Wolves with three open roster spots, although they'll probably fill only two before training camp opens Saturday in San Diego.
