Free agent Andre Miller has reached agreement on a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources tell RealGM.

The deal is for the veteran’s minimum, and with Garnett and Miller together, Minnesota now has two of the three oldest players in the NBA. (Tim Duncan is older than Garnett but younger than Miller.) Both players will be counted on to provide veteran leadership in a locker room full of young kids.
Miller started last season with the Washington Wizards before being dealt to the Sacramento Kings. He appeared in 81 games between the two teams, averaging 4.4 points and 3.5 assists while shooting 50 percent from the field in 15.5 minutes per game.
The Wolves have Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine and Tyus Jones at point guard, but Miller will likely still see some playing time. LaVine and Jones are youngsters and who knows how Rubio’s health holds up. But even if Miller doesn’t play much, his presence in the locker room should be invaluable.
