The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed another Utah Jazz graduate.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday that the Timberwolves are signing forward Joe Ingles in free agency. Ingles is joining Minnesota on a one-year deal, Wojnarowski added.

Ingles, 36, is best known for playing for the Utah Jazz from 2014 to 2022. There, he was teammates with two current Timberwolves — center Rudy Gobert and guard Mike Conley. Ingles and Gobert appeared in three playoff games and won a division title together in Utah before Conley joined them in 2019, winning three more playoff games and two more division titles.

Minnesota needed playmakers off the bench, as Kyle Anderson had just left as a free agent to join a Western Conference rival. While Ingles is very much a home run, he shot 43.5 percent from three-point range for the Orlando Magic last season and can easily lead the second-unit attack. Minnesota’s familiarity with two key starters should also help Ingles’ case.
