The Minnesota Timberwolves and restricted free agent forward Ryan Gomes have agreed in principle on a five-year contract.
Gomes was one of five players acquired by the Wolves last summer in the big trade with Boston for Kevin Garnett. Gomes played in all 82 games, 74 as a starter, and averaged a career-best 12.6 points and 5.8 rebounds.
The deal was agreed upon Friday, agent Bob Myers said. Gomes was expected to sign the contract on Tuesday.
"He's excited and happy to be back and looking forward to starting with a lot of the new faces they have,'' Myers said.
I think Gomes has a lot of potential, but I don't know if they should've signed him for 5 years, I'll wait and see the $$$ he is making per year.
