Another month gone, and another month closer to the start of the Minnesota Timberwolves 2012-13 season. We began the month of September by analyzing the rumors behind the Timberwolves then-apparent interest in free agent knucklehead Andray Blatche, who ultimately failed to receive a contract offer from Minnesota and ended up signing a deal to play for the Brooklyn Nets.
Along with Blatche, former Sacramento King center Hassan Whiteside received interest from Minnesota and was even flown to Minneapolis for a private workout with the team. However, Whiteside too did not receive a contract offer from the club as Minnesota instead signed veteran PF-C Lou Amundson, who most recently played for Indiana last season. The signing of Amundson spelled the end of contract negotiations between Anthony Tolliver and the Pups, and Tolliver instead signed a veteran minimum deal to play for the Atlanta Hawks.
