The Minnesota Timberwolves have only about $3.3 million left to spend in free agency. It appears that they’re going to use that money on Jamal Crawford.

Crawford is in serious talks with the team after being bought out by the Atlanta Hawks. He was recently traded to the Hawks in a three-team deal involving the Denver Nuggets and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Paul Millsap went to the Nuggets, while Danilo Gallinari moved to the Clippers in the sign-and-trade deal. Crawford, Diamond Stone and a 2018 first-round pick went to Atlanta.

With Crawford, the Timberwolves boost their bench. He gives them a three-point specialist, who is a multi-time Sixth Man of the Year winner.

He gives the Wolves added depth. The team lost Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine and Kris Dunn in trades this off-season.

Rubio was traded to the Utah Jazz for a first-round draft pick. LaVine and Dunn, along with a 2017 first-round pick, went to the Chicago Bulls to acquire Jimmy Butler.

The Timberwolves were not the only team interested in Crawford. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, who also share The Staples Center with the Clippers, and the Washington Wizards.

This past season, the 37-year-old averaged 12.3 points, 1.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 0.7 steals with the Clippers. He also shot 41.3% from the field.
