Timberwolves waive Brady Heslip

The Minnesota Timberwolves waived guard Brady Heslip today, bringing the team roster down to 16 players. The regular season starts Tuesday, and the maximum number of players a team can have on their roster is 15, so at least one more cut is coming.

Heslip, 24, appeared in four preseason games for the Wolves, tallying five points, two steals and one rebound in nine minutes of play. The 6-2 guard saw action in five games (two starts) for the Wolves entry in 2014 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, shooting 61.1% from the field and 70.0% from three-point range. Heslip wrapped up his college career at Baylor as the best shooter in school history as well as one of the best shooters in Big 12 history, finishing his career with 1140 career points (20th in school history) and his 43.7% three-point percentage was the highest in school history and third-best in Big 12 history.

The Wolves begin their 26th NBA season this Wednesday, October 29, playing on the road in Memphis against the Grizzlies. The Timberwolves home opener will be the following night, Thursday, October 30, vs. the Detroit Pistons.
