Reports: Prince joins Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to sign Tayshaun Prince on a one-year, veteran's minimum deal, according to reports. 

Prince, who will be heading into his 14th NBA season, is a highly established small forward who knows what it takes to win an NBA title as he achieved the feat with the Detroit Pistons in the 2003/04 NBA season. 

Since Prince possesses a vast amount of experience and has played against some of the top players the game has ever seen, the Timberwolves will likely use him in a player-mentor role as the team currently has a number of young up-and-coming talents. 

Prince has had flashes of brilliance throughout the last couple of seasons and could prove to be a solid player for the Timberwolves, especially as he boasts career averages of 11.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. 

Prince is the latest veteran to sign with the Timberwolves after big man Kevin Garnett, who re-signed on a two-year deal in July, and point guard Andre Miller, who inked a one-year, veteran's minimum deal at the end of last month.
