Timberwolves exercise option on McCants

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves exercised the third-year option on shooting guard Rashad McCants on Tuesday, a sign the team is confident he fully will recover from serious knee surgery performed in the offseason.
McCants, Minnesota’s first-round pick out of North Carolina last season, had microfracture surgery on his right knee in June. It’s the same procedure that kept Phoenix star Amare Stoudemire out for essentially all of last season.
McCants averaged 7.9 points and 1.8 rebounds in his first season, but blossomed down the stretch when coach Dwane Casey increased his minutes.
‘‘Rashad demonstrated late last season that he has the ability to score at this level, and has a tremendous future in this league,’’ vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said in a statement issued by the team. ‘‘We believe he will fully recover from his injury and become a valuable member of the Timberwolves for years to come.’’
The Timberwolves don’t expect him back for at least the first two months of this season while they take a cautious approach to his recovery.
