Reports: Wolves agree to terms with Jamal Crawford

Jamal Crawford is a new backup guard on Tom Thibodeau's roster.

One roster spot filled, three more to go as the Timberwolves have reached an agreement with free agent shooting guard Jamal Crawford, according to reports.

ESPN reports that it's a two-year deal worth $9 million including a player option in year two of the contract.

Crawford, 37, will be the oldest player on the team and the best 3-point threat off the bench as a backup guard. The soon-to-be 18-year veteran averaged 12.3 points and shot 36% from 3-point land with the Clippers last season.

He's a three-time winner of the Sixth Man of the Year Award.
