Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Wolves waive two to get to season-opening, 15-man roster

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves players, Wolves news Updated: October 27, 2012 - 8:20 PM

The Wolves, as expected, waived training-camp invitees center Chris Johnson and forward Mike Harris by today's deadline to set their season-opening roster.

That gets them down to the maximum 15 players, and it means former D Leaguer Will Conroy will start the season with the team as an extra point guard.

The Wolves have 14 players with guaranteed contracts, so all 14 were certain to make the final roster.

Conroy was signed to a small guarantee -- a finder's fee perhaps for helping convince Brandon Roy to sign here?

He'll probably stay on the roster at least until Ricky Rubio is back and proving he is healthy. Conroy's also insurance in case Luke Ridnour continues to be troubled by that herniated disc in his back.
