The Timberwolves continue to build their roster for next season. While the Minneapolis franchise has already achieved a big blow with the arrival of Rudy Gobert, who left the Jazz after nine seasons, it is a complementary player that the staff led by general manager Tim Connelly has managed to convince. . Indeed, according to information from the journalist of the American channel ESPN Adrian Wojnarowski, the Minnesota Timberwolves have reached an agreement with Eric Paschall, who should join the team coached by Chris Finch for the 2022-2023 season only. Drafted in 2019 by the Golden State Warriors, the strong winger joined the Jazz last season as part of a trade for a future choice in the second round of the NBA Draft.

Paschall will find Gobert
When his contract with the Salt Lake City-based franchise expired, the Sleepy Hollow native was on the market. Knowing Rudy Gobert well, Eric Paschall did not hesitate to sign a one-season contract, the amount of which has not been made public. The 25-year-old thus joins an ambitious formation, which also counts in its ranks Karl-Anthony Towns but also the promising Jaden McDaniels. Such a wealth of staff should impose on Eric Paschall a role as a complementary player after being used sparingly on the Utah side. Indeed, the strong winger has played on average only 12.7 minutes during the 58 games in which he has been able to come into play under the orders of Quin Snyder. With a shooting success of 48.5%, including 37% from three points, Eric Paschall averaged 5.8 points per game. Statistics that he will no doubt be keen to improve in Minnesota.
