The Minnesota Timberwolves have been trying to figure out how to make their top selection from the 2011 NBA Draft work for them. Back when David Kahn grabbed standout forward Derrick Williams with the second pick in the draft, the plan was find a way to put him next to Kevin Love or hope that he made Love expendable in a trade. Neither of those options have come to fruition just yet.
According to 1500 ESPN, Wolves owner Glen Taylor has confirmed that the Wolves will exercise their team option on Williams fourth season before the October 31 deadline.
“Derrick Williams’ $6.3 million option for 2014-15 will be exercised, Wolves owner Glen Taylor confirmed to 1500ESPN.com contributor Darren Wolfson.”
