The Minnesota Timberwolves have waived guard Bryn Forbes to make room for the trade completed on Wednesday. Before the 2022-23 NBA Trade Deadline began to ramp up it was speculated that the team would attempt to trade the veteran guard or waive him after the deadline. The team acquired Mike Conley from the Utah Jazz and needed to clear up a spot in the rotation. Forbes will be a candidate for another team after the trade deadline has officially passed later on Thursday afternoon. He may sign with a playoff contender in the coming days.

This season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Bryn Forbes averaged 3.3 points in just 10.6 minutes per game with the team. He paired those numbers with a field-goal percentage of 34.6 percent and a three-point percentage of 26.8 percent. A shake-up from the Timberwolves was coming after the team has struggled throughout the season. This deal will hopefully stabilize the team as they attempt to make the 2023 NBA Playoffs and close out the NBA season strong. Forbes will look for another team in the coming days and weeks. Minnesota will have a brand new look the next time they take the court this season.
