The Minnesota Timberwolves have reportedly agreed to a deal to sign veteran point guard Aaron Brooks, according to Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press. The addition gives coach Tom Thibodeau another familiar face with a deep background as he tries to turn the Timberwolves into a playoff team.

Brooks played for Thibodeau during the coach's final season in Chicago in 2014-15, appearing in all 82 games and averaging 11.6 points and 2.0 assists in 23 minutes a game.

Brooks is something of an National Basketball Association journeyman who has played for the Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Denver Nuggets, Bulls and Indiana Pacers since he was a first-round pick out of OR in 2007. The role of backing up Teague will come as nothing new to Brooks, who did so last season as a member of the Indiana Pacers. He was nowhere near the player he was in his prime, when he won the 2009-10 Most Improved Player award with Houston behind a career-best 19.6 points and 5.3 assists per game and 39.8 percent shooting clip from three-point range. He averaged 13.8 minutes in 65 games for in last season.

The Wolves will open training camp on Saturday in San Diego after hosting media day on Friday.
