Report: Wolves agree to terms with veteran CJ Williams

Williams played in 38 games with the Clippers last season.

C.J. Williams, a 28-year-old shooting guard who got his first crack in the NBA last season, is signing a two-way contract with the Timberwolves, according to Yahoo Sports NBA Insider Shams Charania

Williams went undrafted about of North Carolina State in 2012 and spent the next five years playing in the G-League and overseas. He got his first shot in the NBA with the Clippers when Blake Griffin got injured early last season. 

In 38 games, including 17 starts, Williams averaged a modest 5.5 points while making 44.2 percent of his shots. It's not a big sample size, but for a supposed "3 and D" guy, Williams made just 22 of 78 threes (28.2 percent) last season. 

He was much more productive in the G-League, averaging 16.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and he shot just under 38 percent on 3-pointers. 

Each NBA teams is allowed to sign two players to two-way contracts, that allow them to be play in the G-League and the NBA. Jared Terrell, a rookie guard out of Rhode Island, signed the first two-way contract with the Wolves.
