Wolves showing guarded interest in free agents

Knight Ridder Newspapers

MINNEAPOLIS -- Timberwolves vice president Kevin McHale said Sunday the team might sign another point guard and will decide whether to do so "within the next couple of days."

The Wolves have only the minimum salary to lure free agents, but they already have looked at veteran Robert Pack, who worked out for Minnesota last week.

"I've always liked Robert Pack," McHale said. "He's played in our league long enough to have some veteran leadership and stuff. So he's one of the guys we've at least talked about."

Other veteran point guard possibilities: Sherman Douglas, Matt Maloney and Ron Harper. A free agent signed before the end of the regular season is eligible for the playoffs as long as he wasn't cut by another NBA team after March 1.


The Wolves have struggled with depth and consistency without Brandon, rotating Will Avery and Felipe Lopez as Chauncey Billups' backups. All have struggled the past few weeks in the absence of Terrell Brandon.
