Reports: Wolves add ex-Pacers center Jordan Hill

Publish date:

The Wolves have agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal with free-agent center Jordan Hill, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Hill averaged 8.8 points and 6.2 rebounds while shooting 50.6 percent from the field in 73 games with the Indiana Pacers last season. He averaged about 20 minutes of playing time per game.

Hill is the second veteran backup center the Wolves have signed, joining Bloomington, Minnesota, native Cole Aldrich.

Minnesota's frontcourt is now filled with names:

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
  • Jordan Hill
  • Cole Aldrich
  • Nikola Pekovic
  • Gorgui Dieng
  • Nemanja Bjelica
  • Kevin Garnett (he's signed but nobody knows if he'll play)

Shabazz Muhammad can also play some power forward if the Wolves decide to go with a smaller lineup.
