Yesterday, it was reported by the all mighty powerful Woj (real name Adrian Wojnarowski, of Yahoo Sports) that the Timberwolves and free agent veteran point guard Mo Williams agreed to a 1 year 3.75 million dollar contract.
Mo Williams has agreed to a one year, $3.75M deal with the Timberwolves, league source tells Yahoo.

The former Portland Trail Blazer gives the Wolves a solid backup point guard to play behind Ricky Rubio, and more importantly, likely provides the second unit with much more stable play – especially compared to that of JJ Barea, who was at times erratic and appeared to hijack possessions.
My thoughts on the signing?
Cool since it’s a one year deal under 4 million. But honestly, all that the move means, is that the Wolves are likely making another move. The Wolves have a log jam at guard at the moment -- Mo Williams, Alexey Shved, Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine, JJ Barea. In order to have a more balanced roster, one of those players has got to go. And signs point to the Wolves likely getting rid of Barea or Shved. Which one? Now that remains to be seen.
