Timberwolves sign Mickael Gelabale

Nick Laham

The 6'7" swingman from France will join the team when Lazar Hayward's 10-day deal expires Friday

From NBA.com:

The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms with French swingman Mickael Gelabale.

Gelabale has been playing for Valencia in the Spanish league. He is being brought in to add depth to a team that has been decimated by injuries to Kevin Love, Brandon Roy, Chase Budinger, Josh Howard and Malcolm Lee.

Gelabale does have some NBA experience. He played 109 games with the Seattle SuperSonics from 2006-08. He averaged just over 15 minutes per game in those two seasons before heading back overseas.

Not exactly Nic Batum, but it's something. He's at least versatile and a decent athlete, although one has to wonder what this means in light of previous reports that the Wolves had little interest in him initially (did the well already run dry...?) I doubt this will end the interest in Jared Dudley/JJ Redick/etc, but I'll try and confirm.

Meanwhile....


Welp. Ok then.
