Cam Reynolds is in the middle of his second 10-day contract with the Timberwolves, which was set to expire next week.
The 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward has played six games for Minnesota this year and has averaged 4.3 points in 14.8 minutes. His most impressive game came against the Detroit Pistons last March 12 when he scored 12 points on 4-7 shooting from behind the arc.
Before inking his deal with the Timberwolves, Reynolds spent most of this season in the G League, playing for the Stockton Kings. In 33 games (nine starts), he averaged 16.0 points and 4.3 rebounds while shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from 3.
The Timberwolves are able to sign a young, promising prospect in Reynolds. Should he continue to develop, he can become a player who can guard multiple positions and can also be a threat from the 3-point area. Expect him to be a regular rotation guy for Minnesota as long as he keeps on improving.
Minnesota has consistently struggled despite having a talented young core of Karl Anthony-Towns and Andrew Wiggins. The best thing that the team could do right now is to surround those two with talented individuals who can space the floor and create their own shots. Reynolds can definitely do both. The only question is how good he will be moving forward.
So far, the team seems to be impressed with what he’s been able to do despite playing limited minutes.
