An agreement between CJ Elleby and the Minnesota Timberwolves has been reached

The Portland Trail Blazers selected CJ Elleby, who was selected 46th overall in the 2020 NBA Draft, as their newest addition to the Minnesota Timberwolves this summer. Elleby and the Timberwolves reached a training camp agreement on Tuesday, enabling the rookie wing to contend for the team’s last roster slot.


The 22-year-old Elleby played a minor role in Portland during his first two seasons in the NBA, but considering the number of ailments the Trail Blazers had with this past season, he did get plenty of action. CJ Elleby averaged 5.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 39.3 percent from the field and 29.4 percent from three-point range in 58 games played during the 2021–22 season.

The Timberwolves will have a maximum of 20 contracts once the official signing of his contract with Minnesota and the start of training camp. Only 12 of these contracts, however, are guaranteed owing to league regulations.
