The Wolves officially got down to 16 players today by waiving training camp invitee Brady Heslip. Here's the text of the press release:
Minneapolis/St. Paul - The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has waived guard Brady Heslip. The Wolves roster now stands at 16 players.
Heslip, 24, appeared in four preseason games for the Wolves, tallying five points, two steals and one rebound in nine minutes of play. The 6-2 guard saw action in five games (two starts) for the Wolves entry in 2014 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, shooting 61.1% from the field and 70.0% from three-point range. Heslip wrapped up his college career at Baylor as the best shooter in school history as well as one of the best shooters in Big 12 history, finishing his career with 1140 career points (20th in school history) and his 43.7% three-point percentage was the highest in school history and third-best in Big 12 history.
The Wolves must cut the roster to 15 by Monday afternoon, which means one more move is necessary. Speculation is that the Wolves will waive Glenn Robinson III, who is owed $250,000 in guaranteed money. Other alternatives include a buyout of J.J. Barea or Robbie Hummel, both of whom also have guaranteed money coming to them. We'll know by Monday.
