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.
