The 37-year-old Crawford, who averaged 12.3 points per game in 2016-17, officially secured his buyout from the Atlanta Hawks earlier this week.
The Timberwolves had indeed been mentioned as a frontrunner for Crawford in recent days. He’ll be able to serve as a veteran heat-check guy to continue complementing their high-upside young core after the acquisitions of Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague, and Taj Gibson earlier this offseason.
