The Minnesota Timberwolves are signing free agent forward Tayshaun Prince, according to Yahoo Sports' Marc J. Spears:

Prince will team up with fellow Kentucky Wildcats alumni Karl-Anthony Towns, whom the Wolves drafted with the no. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

The 6-9 forward played for the Memphis Grizzlies, Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons this past season, averaging 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in just 24 minutes per game. Tayshaun did shoot 45 percent from beyond the arc this past season and still has enough in the tank to be a solid role player for a playoff contender.

With Towns being paired with Andrew Wiggins, Kevin Garnett and Ricky Rubio, it's not out of the realm of possibility to see the Wolves contending for a spot in the NBA playoffs next season.
