This refutes reports from Greece linking Paschal to Panathinaikos in Athens. rumors that Pashall called “false news”. (Most likely the team got in touch and made an offer, but Pashall knew he had a path to an NBA deal.)
Paschall, 25, of Villanova, averaged 5.8 points per game last season with the Utah Jazz in the limited lineup. He played a bigger role early in the season with the Jazz and was solid, but when Rudy Gay returned to the rotation, Pashall lost his seat and was seen mostly during waste time.
Bilaterally, Pashall is the favorite for Minnesota to play legitimate minutes for them in 82 games. The Timberwolves have a lot of guys who can play four – Towns will start there and behind him Jayden McDaniels, Taurus Princeand newbie Josh Minott can get minutes there.
The Timberwolves already have contracts for 15 players for the upcoming season, the maximum allowed. Naz Reed center and flank Jaylen Nowell had non-guaranteed contracts, but they were always going to be on the list.
