The Wolves will host former NBA players Trey Johnson (pictured), Sundiata Gaines, Curtis Jerrells and Aaron Miles prior to Wednesday's game against the Kings in Sacramento according to a league source. The Wolves would need to release a player currently on the roster to bring a new player in as they already have a league-maximum 15 players with Maurice Ager being the only player without a guaranteed contract.

The Bulls worked out Patrick Beverley and Sundiata Gaines, a source said, but they haven't decided if they will add a 14th, non-guaranteed, contract.
Sundiata Gaines looks like the frontrunner in the #Timberwolves' audition for PG. He made that big 3 with Utah to beat Cavs last January. Twitter
Gaines hasn't heard one way or the other (yet), but agent just told me that they're "keeping (their) fingers and toes crossed." Twitter
The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed free-agent guard Sundiata Gaines. To make room on the roster, the Wolves last night requested waivers on guard Maurice Ager.
Gaines, a 6-1 point guard, appeared in 32 games for the Utah Jazz in 2009-10, averaging 3.3 points and 1.2 assists in 6.8 minutes per game. He is probably best known for hitting a three-pointer at the buzzer to give the Jazz a 97-96 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Jan. 14, 2010. It was the first NBA three-pointer of his career. Gaines also appeared in five playoff games with Utah in 2010, averaging 2.2 ppg.
Prior to joining the Jazz, Gaines played in 14 games with the Idaho Stampede of the NBA D-League in 2009-10, averaging 23.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists.
Gaines played for the University of Georgia from 2004-07, averaging 11.9 ppg, 5.5 rpg and 3.9 apg in 123 career games. He finished his career as Georgia’s all-time leader in steals (259) and second in assists (476).
