Wolves sign Hollins to offer sheetComment Email Print Share Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed restricted free-agent center Ryan Hollins to an offer sheet, giving the Dallas Mavericks seven days to match the offer.

Terms were not released.

The 7-foot Hollins was selected from UCLA in the 2006 draft by the Charlotte Bobcats. He played two-plus seasons with the Bobcats before being traded to Dallas in January.

Hollins has career averages of 2.7 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.

Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn calls Hollins an athletic center who should fit in well on the frontcourt with Kevin Love and Al Jefferson.

hollins

He is an athletic big man who can block shots and run the court. With both Love and Jefferson being pf's, they needed to add a legit 7 footer. He played is best ball with Dallas last year and began to look like he could be a solid contributor in this league .
