Bonzi Wells Cut by Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves opened camp with 15 players already under contract, so Wells faced long odds from the outset.

“I knew that was an uphill battle I was fighting coming into the situation,” Wells texted The Star Press shortly after the Timberwolves waived him. “After talking with management everything was positive. They just couldn’t make any trades to get them under 15 guaranteed contracts. But I’m going to stay ready and not give up on the season.”

The 35-year-old Wells auditioned for the Timberwolves for nearly two weeks. He played in both preseason games for the Timberwolves and averaged 1.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 12.5 minutes.

The former Ball State and Central High School star last played in an NBA game in May 2008. Wells played briefly in China in the 2008-09 season and in Puerto Rico for 2009-10. He stayed in Muncie this year and trained for an NBA comeback attempt.

Wells played in the NBA for 10 seasons from 1998-99 to 2007-08. He averaged 12.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 591 games.

The Detroit Pistons selected Wells 11th overall in the 1998 NBA Draft and traded his rights to the Portland Trail Blazers. Wells played 5 1/2 seasons for the Blazers and then followed with stops in Memphis, Sacramento, Houston and New Orleans.

First-year Minnesota coach Rick Adelman coached Wells in Sacramento and Houston.
