The Timberwolves could be looking to add Luol Deng.

The 33-year-old forward is expected to become a free agent after he reportedly agreed to a buyout with the Lakers on Saturday. Minnesota will consider signing Deng once he clears waivers, according to a report from The Athletic.

Multiple contenders will be interested in Deng, according to an earlier report from ESPN.

Deng played for current Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau with the Bulls from 2010-14.

Deng signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Lakers in July 2016, but he quickly fell out of their rotation. He played just 13 total minutes last season.

The two-time All-Star has averaged 15 points and 6.1 rebounds over his 14-year career.
