The Minnesota Timberwolves are coming off of an injury plagued season with Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio and with their core healthy and ready to come back, the franchise is looking to being in some strong pieces, including options in J.J. Redick and Chase Budinger.

According to Pro Basketball Talk, the Timberwolves are looking at Redick and Budinger in free agency, putting out four year offers to each player. Sources told Adrian Wojnarowski that Redick is the one the team wants the most, but that they would like to sign at least one of the players. Redick would be the preferred name and they also like Budinger from the team last year and that could help add some scoring and shooting to the roster.

The Bucks liked what they had in Redick last season, but it is likely that he will be on his way out of town as the team will likely try to sign Monta Ellis after he opted out of his contract. Redick has also had meeting with the Clippers and there is a chance that he could end up there in a sign and trade deal.

The Clippers have started up the idea of a sign and trade with Eric Bledsoe, but so far that deal is a long way off. "The Timberwolves drafted Shabazz Muhammad and he could end up getting into the starting lineup later on, but for now he will come off the bench. Redick is one of the top shooters in the NBA and could be a great addition to the Wolves.
