Timberwolves announce contract extension for Dieng

The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed big man Gorgui Dieng to a contract extension.

The team announced the move on Monday. A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press it is worth $64 million over four years, starting next season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team did not release contract terms.

In his fourth season, Dieng has emerged as a talented and versatile forward and center. He has been starting alongside Karl-Anthony Towns in a promising frontcourt. The deal ensures that Dieng will not become a restricted free agent next summer and cements him as a critical building block of a team that hopes to be a contender in the Western Conference in the near future.

Dieng is averaging 13.0 points and 13.5 rebounds in the first two games of this season.
