In a recent report, it has been confirmed that Naz Reid, the backup swingman for the Minnesota Timberwolves, has agreed to re-sign with the team on a new three-year contract.

Despite going undrafted in 2019, Reid has made significant contributions to the Timberwolves and will continue to do so with this new deal. The contract, reportedly worth up to $42 million, includes a player option for Reid.

According to reliable sources such as ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Reid's decision to stay in Minnesota underscores his commitment to the team and his belief in its future.

When he initially joined the Timberwolves, he signed a two-way contract, but his impressive performances over the years have solidified his role as a valuable backup option behind star centers Karl-Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert.

During the 2022-23 season, Reid showcased his abilities by leading the Timberwolves in scoring for six games.

His overall performance saw him achieve career-high statistics, averaging 11.5 points and 4.9 rebounds per game with an impressive 53.7% shooting accuracy from the field.

Notably, he stepped up when Towns faced an extended absence due to a severe right calf muscle strain, proving himself to be a reliable asset for the team. Re-signing Reid is a significant move for the Timberwolves, as it ensures their depth and strengthens their roster for the seasons to come.

With his continued growth and contributions, the team can rely on him to provide crucial support and maintain stability in their frontcourt. As the fourth-year forward-center continues to develop his skills, the Timberwolves can look forward to a bright future with Naz Reid as an integral part of their lineup.
