Wolves decline to match offer sheet for Tyus Jones

The point guard position for the Minnesota Timberwolves is a bit of a question headed into the 2019-20 season with Jeff Teague on an expiring contract and things murky after that.

According to a report from The Athletic, Wolves restricted free agent Tyus Jones agreed to an offer sheet with the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night.

The offer sheet was for three years and $28 million over the course of the contract. Late Tuesday night, the Wolves officially declined to match the offer. President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas issued a statement on the matter.

In four seasons with the Wolves, the Apple Valley, Minn. native has averaged 6.9 points per game on 41.5% shooting while dishing out 4.8 assists per game.
