The Minnesota Timberwolves agreed to terms on Sunday with free agent forward Omri Casspi, according to multiple reports. The deal will cover the remainder of the season and does not carry over into next season, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not officially announced the deal.

Casspi, a 6-foot-9 forward, was traded by Sacramento to New Orleans days before the trade deadline, but was waived by the Pelicans after suffering a broken thumb in his first game with his new team in February.

But Casspi returned from the injury ahead of schedule.

I love the fit of Omri Casspi with the Minnesota Timberwolves, as reported by ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Timberwolves have added another shooting threat.

Minnesota now is 4.5 games behind the Denver Nuggets for the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference playoffs.

Casspi is averaging 6.1 points and 4.0 rebounds over 23 games with three teams this season and has career averages of 8.5 points and 4.2 rebounds over 486 career National Basketball Association games, including stints with Cleveland and Houston as well as the Kings and Pelicans. Casspi has also spent time with Cleveland and Houston.
