According to Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s Minnesota Timberwolves writer Chris Hines believes that the team would attempt to re-sign Tyus Jones this summer. He adds that Jones and interim head coach Ryan Saunders have a good relationship.

Jeff Teague could throw a monkey wrench in the situation. If he exercises his $19 million player option for the 2019-20 season, he would limit the team’s flexibility.

Jones will be a restricted free agent. That means when a team signs Jones, the Timberwolves have an option to match his offer.

Besides Teague’s option, Rose is on a one-year deal. Jones has a $3.5 million qualifying offer for the 2019-20 season.

He has been the third-string point guard, behind Teague and Derrick Rose, who has turned back the clock this season to the young D-Rose.

The 22-year-old Burnsville, Minnesota native was traded to the Timberwolves from the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was acquired by the Wolves for two 2015 second-round draft picks.

He was the Cavaliers No. 24 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Jones is in his fourth season in the league. He has appeared in 49 games with eight starts.

He is averaging a career-best 5.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.3 steals, and 0.1 blocks per game. Jones is averaging 20.9 minutes per contest.
