Sources – Timberwolves, Joe Ingles agree to one-year contract

Free agent forward Joe Ingles has agreed on a one-year, $3.3 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, reuniting him with Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.

Once the Timberwolves knew they were losing Kyle Anderson in free agency, President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly engaged with Ingles’ agent, Mark Bartelstein, on landing a deal to bring his 3-point shooting and playmaking to the Western Conferences finalists.

Ingles, 36, played with Gobert and Conley in Utah, where they regularly advanced in the playoffs together.

Ingles is a career 41% 3-point shooter — including 43.5% for Orlando last season — and stands fourth best among players with 2,500-plus attempts since coming to the NBA in the 2014-15 season, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He trails only JJ Redick (42.9%), Steph Curry (42.1%) and Klay Thompson (41.4%).

Ingles has played 10 NBA seasons after arriving from Australia, who he’ll represent in the 2024 Summer Olympics. He played eight seasons with the Jazz, ending his career there with a torn ACL in 2022. He played for the Milwaukee Bucks and Magic in the past two seasons, and now appears destined for the playoffs for a third straight year — this time, with the Timberwolves.
