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 won't give Hummel, Jeffers qualifying offers

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves players, Wolves news Updated: June 30, 2014 - 5:44 PM

The Wolves announced today -- as tonight's 11 p.m. start of the NBA's annual free-agency period approaches -- that they will not extend qualifying offers to rookie Robbie Hummel and veteran Othyus Jeffers.

That will make each player an unrestricted free agent to sign with any team starting tonight.

It doesn't mean, however, that the Wolves still couldn't bring one or both back, although the Wolves will have 14 players under guaranteed contracts once they sign draftees Zach LaVine and Glenn Robinson III.

Flip Saunders said he doesn't expect the Wolves to be active in free agency in these opening hours -- and probably days -- of free agency.
