The Minnesota Timberwolves announced late Monday evening that the team had indeed exercised the fourth year option with Josh Okogie and the third year option with Jarrett Culver. While this is not surprising to anyone, it is still worth noting as I believe the deadline for picking up these options was sometime today.

Culver, who turns 22 in February, had an average of 9. 2 points and 3. 4 rebounds in 23. 9 minutes per competition in 63 games (35 starts) last season, his first in the NBA. The Wolves originally acquired. July 2019 by the Phoenix Suns the draft of the rights to the 6-7 watch.

So far this season, the Texas Tech alum has not only improved his all-round game, but also his physical and mental makeup significantly. Armed with a larger frame, JC averages 10. 7 points (at 56% shooting) and connects to 71. 4% of his free throws. Culver also shoots 35. 7% of three (albeit 8 attempts so far), and while we’re only playing three short games in the new season (#SmallSampleSize), the improvements for Jarrett are definitely promising and something worth monitoring as it progresses.

Okogie – JO has appeared in 139 games (including 83 starts) for the Timberwolves since he was 20. Overall victory in the 2018 NBA Draft was selected. Since joining the league, Josh has averaged 8. 1 point to 40. 6% shooting and 3. 6 rebounds per competition in 139 games (83 starts) for the Timberwolves. As part of the 2020 All-Star Weekend in Chicago, he was named Team World for the second time in a row at the Rising Stars Game.

Speaking of Josh! The team announced this afternoon that the injury they sustained against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night was actually more than just convulsions (shock):

Ryan Saunders says doctors initially decided Josh Okogie’s injury was just convulsions. However, another examination revealed thigh strain. Saunders says Okogie will face the Clippers tonight.

This is absolutely no surprise to anyone – the Timberwolves have been notoriously vague about injuries and recovery times over the past few years (for reasons I still can’t really understand). . That said, it looks like the Wolves will get by without two of their original starters not just tonight but for the next couple of games as well, which should mean that people like Culver, Anthony Edwards, and maybe even Ricky Rubio will use their names for the first We will find unity now.

Congratulations to Josh and Jarrett for taking up their options. Let’s hope that they can develop and be part of the core of this team in the future.
