Timberwolves waive Cam Reynolds
The Minnesota Timberwolves waived shooting guard Cam Reynolds on Friday, the 24-year-old announced on social media.
“[I] got to live out my dream and play in the NBA this year and could not be more thankful to the Minnesota Timberwolves for allowing me to apart [sic] of their organization.”
In the Instagram caption, Reynolds added the adage “When one door closes, another one opens” and said that he’s thankful for his supporters.

Man! What can I say…. got to live out my dream and play in the NBA this year and could not be more thankful to the Minnesota Timberwolves for allowing me to apart of their organization. When one door closes, another one opens. Thank you for everyone that has been supporting me. This hurts, but I’ll be back soon🙏🏽
Reynolds had an unremarkable stint in Minnesota. Appearing in only 19 games this past season, the Tulane University product signed with the Timberwolves in February to two 10-day contracts before inking a deal for the remainder of the season.
Cam would go on to average 5.0 points and 1.6 rebounds in 13.6 minutes per game.
Prior to the Twin Cities, Reynolds signed a training camp contract with the Sacramento Kings. However, he was cut by Sacramento before the 2018-19 season began.
In college, Reynolds grew as a player, particularly in his junior and senior seasons. As a sophomore, Cam’s year was cut short after nine games due to a wrist injury. In his age-22 year, Reynolds averaged 15.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists in the American Athletic Conference (AAC) and then declared for the draft.
For Minnesota, the Western Conference team must now decide how to build to their burgeoning franchise, which missed the NBA playoffs this past season.
The Timberwolves certainly made a move in the NBA Draft not long ago — reaching a deal with the Phoenix Suns to move up and draft Texas Tech product Jarrett Culver at no. 6.
Waiving Reynolds is just one of many moves awaiting the Timberwolves as free agency begins on June 30.
