The Minnesota Timberwolves are unlikely to make any major moves this summer, given their strong performance last season.

Instead, they will focus even more on the squad they currently have and prepare for more success in 2024-25.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, center Luka Garza will return to the Timberwolves on a two-year contract.

Garza hasn’t been much of a presence for the Timberwolves over the past two seasons, but he could do more in the coming years.

Last season, Garza averaged just 4 points and 1.2 rebounds during his 25 games.

He averaged just 4.9 minutes per game and never started a single game.

The details of Garza’s deal are not known, but it is likely to be a very cheap contract for Minnesota, which wants to keep things as steady and stable as possible for the new season.

They finished the 2023–24 season as the third-best team in the Western Conference with a 56–26 record.

The team impressed the rest of the league with a strong performance in the postseason, getting past the Phoenix Suns and the Denver Nuggets before being eliminated by the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals.

They hope to be even better next season, but they don’t want to shake things up and get rid of players or add a lot of talent.

Instead, the Timberwolves will look to keep the team together and build on last season.

Will Garza play more often or will he remain a substitute who gets few minutes?

That remains to be seen, but if the Timberwolves have more success than last season, he could soon become a champion.
