MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Monday that the team will not extending qualifying offers to forwards Robbie Hummel and Othyus Jeffers.

Monday is the NBA’s deadline to do so, and it means both Hummel and Jeffers will become unrestricted free agents July 1. That does not rule out the possibility that they would return to the Timberwolves, it just means they become available on the open market.

Hummel, a 6-8 forward, appeared in 53 games this year with five starts. He averaged 3.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and a little more than 12 minutes per game. Jeffers is a 6-8 forward who appeared in two games, totaling two points and three rebounds.

Forward Dante Cunningham is the only other unrestricted free agent the Timberwolves have this summer. They have 12 players under contract, plus two draft picks.
