Tayshaun Prince is reuniting with Flip Saunders.

Prince, a 35-year-old NBA veteran, signing a one-year deal worth the league minimum with the Timberwolves, according to multiple reports. Yahoo's Marc Spears had the news first.

Prince played for Saunders in Detroit from 2005-08 during a three-year run in which the Pistons lost in the conference finals each season.

Prince averaged 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in 24 minutes per game last season, playing in just 58 games combined for the Grizzlies, Celtics and Pistons. He shot 43.1 percent from the field and 42.3 percent from three.

Pro Basketball Talk referred to Prince as a capable wing defender who can still knock down a jump shot.

With Prince on the roster the Timberwolves now have 17 players, two more than the maximum of 15. Pro Basketball Talk speculates that guards Lorenzo Brown and Damjan Rudez are the most likely to be cut before the start of the season.
