=== Report: Madsen agrees to five-year deal with T’Wolves ===

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – The Minnesota Timberwolves have reportedly
come to terms on a five-year contract with forward/center Mark Madsen.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that Madsen chose to remain with the
Timberwolves rather than accept a lucrative offer from the Utah Jazz. The
Washington Wizards were also said to be competing for his services.

Madsen just finished a two-year contract with the Timberwolves and averaged
2.1 points and 3.1 rebounds last season. He missed the latter part of the
season with a torn ligament in his right wrist.

The Timberwolves also announced Saturday that they have named former player
and NBA head coach Johnny Davis as Dwane Casey’s top assistant.
