MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to a four-year, $16 million deal with free agent point guard Luke Ridnour.
The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced. The agreement was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.
Ridnour averaged 10.4 points and 4.0 assists per game as the backup to Brandon Jennings in Milwaukee last season.
The deal likely means that backup point guard Ramon Sessions will be traded from Minnesota. The team hopes to have Ricky Rubio come over from Spain next season and still has Jonny Flynn on the roster, so there may not be room for the veteran Sessions.
The Wolves were able to swing the deal after shipping Al Jefferson to Utah on Tuesday to create more salary cap room.
