Timberwolves Sign Rhode Island Guard Jared Terrell to Two-Way Contract

Unlike last season, the Wolves are moving quickly on guys they like.

Last year, the Wolves were quite deliberate in using their two two-way contracts, not inking Amile Jefferson to their second until well into the season, after signing Anthony Brown to the first in August.

They acted quickly this year, however, inking Jared Terrell of Rhode Island to a two-way deal the day after the NBA draft. He worked out twice for the Wolves in the pre-draft process, and they obviously liked him as shown by this early commitment.

Terrell is a somewhat undersized scoring guard, at 6’3” but with a strong 220 pound frame. He was a four year starter at Rhode Island, and was a major offensive force for the Rams from the beginning of his career.

He is 23 years old, and his shooting percentages from the free throw line and three point line got much better his senior year, when he shot 41 percent from three on 5.3 attempts per game, and 82 percent from the line on 4.1 attempts.

From this video, at least we know he is capable of dunking:

Seems like a reasonably interesting guy to use a two-way on. We should get a look at him during Summer League.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Our own Joel Hernandez chose Terrell for the Wolves in the Canis Hoopus Very Fake Annual Absurd Mock Draft. So kudos to him for having the same taste in players as Thibs/Layden.
