After being released by the Pelicans, Omri Casspi will reportedly sign with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein and Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press. Apparently, the deal will cover just till the end of this year.

Casspi began the 2016-17 season on the Kings, where he averaged 5.9 points and 4.1 rebounds in 18 minutes per contest. He was shipped to New Orleans in the Boogie trade and appeared in just one game before breaking his thumb. The Pelicans waived him immediately after.

Stein tweeted that Minnesota head coach Tom Thibodeau had dinner with Omri to try and convince him to join the team.

Whatever he said, I guess it worked.
