Timberwolves sign Hollins to offer sheet
In an effort to add some height to their undersized front line, the Timberwolves today signed Dallas Mavericks center RyanHollins, a 7-foot-0 restricted free agent, to an offer sheet.
Terms of the offer were not released, but the Mavericks have seven days to match.
"We are excited about the opportunity to have Ryan Hollins on our team," Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn said in a statement. "He is a lengthy, athletic center, with a lot of upside, who should complement Al (Jefferson) and Kevin (Love) really well. We've had our eye on him the past several weeks and we are optimistic we can acquire him through this process."
Hollins has career averages of 2.7 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.
The 7-foot Hollins was selected from UCLA in the 2006 draft by Charlotte. He played two-plus seasons with the Bobcats before being traded to Dallas in January.
Depending on how over the top the Wolves made this offer I don't think Dallas matches

Any moves by the T-Wolves are a clever ploy. Everyone knows they're waiting to pull the trigger on LeBron in 2010
