Timberwolves coach and President of Basketball Operations Tom Thibodeau said he intends to sign three more players to a team that will make three-time Sixth Man of the Year winner Jamal Crawford as its 11th player with a guaranteed contract after he clears waivers Monday.

Thibodeau told WCCO-830 AM Sunday that he'd like to sign two more wing players and a third point guard to join newly signed Jeff Teague and former Apple Valley High star Tyus Jones. But he wants to leave the 15th and final big-league roster spot open to give the team flexibility to make a move later this summer or in the preseason.

The Wolves will introduce Teague and veteran forward Taj Gibson at a news conference Monday.

Toronto, not Wolves, lands shooter Miles

The Raptors traded forward DeMarre Carroll to Brooklyn in a salary dump and landed Wolves target C.J. Miles in a sign-and-trade with Indiana for Cory Joseph in a couple of moves this weekend.

The Wolves also were negotiating with Miles in a potential trade that would have sent Cole Aldrich to Indiana. But the Wolves refused to add Oklahoma City's lottery protected 2018 first-round pick they got from Utah in the trade for Ricky Rubio to make the deal.

Miles signed a three-year, $25 million contract. The 30-year-old is coming off one of the best seasons of his career. He shot 41 percent from three-point range and is an accomplished defender as well.


• Perry Ellis (Kansas) scored 19 points in leading the Wolves' Las Vegas Summer League team to a 90-71 victory over Denver. Matt Costello (Michigan State) had 12 points and 15 rebounds.

• The 76ers made it official, announcing that Markelle Fultz will miss the rest of the Summer League because of a lateral ankle sprain.

• Former Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin withdrew his name from consideration for a similar position in the Knicks' front office. ESPN reported that Griffin and the Knicks couldn't agree on him having full autonomy over basketball decisions and bringing in his own staff.
