The undrafted Tulane product averaged 16.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists with the Sacramento Kings G-League affiliate Stockton Kings earlier this season.
Reynolds, 24, has appeared in two games with the Timberwolves this year — averaging 2.0 points in 3.5 minutes per game. He signed his first 10-day deal with the team on Feb. 27.
The Timberwolves initially freed up the roster spot for Cameron Reynolds when they let point guard Isaiah Canaan’s second 10-day contract expire. Reynolds will lend a helping hand at the wing, as Robert Covington continues to miss time with a knee injury.
Andrew Wiggins, Luol Deng, Josh Okogie have all been forced to play out of position as of late, which hasn’t done Minnesota any favors with some of their recent match-ups.
Reynolds has a versatile-type frame at 6-foot-8, which will allow him to play anywhere from the two to four spot on the floor.
The Timberwolves will need to make a decision within the next week whether or not to retain the rookie wing for the remainder of the regular season. Minnesota is not officially ruled out of playoff contention just yet, currently sitting at 30-35 with a spatter of hope to make the postseason next month.
With significant ground to cover and limited time left, Minnesota will need as much depth possible in order to finish strong.
