Josh Okogie will become an unrestricted free agent

The Minnesota Timberwolves do not intend to extend the qualifying offer worth $5.8 million in Josh Okogie’s contract, according to the reporter from 5 Eyewitness NewsDarren Wolfson. Thus, the escort will become a free agent without restrictions from July 1.

In this way, Okogie will have the freedom to choose his next destination in the NBA, without ruling out, in any case, his continuity in Minnesota under a much smaller agreement. In fact, his performance and trajectory in the league suggest that his new contract will not go much beyond a minimum salary or a reduced portion of a mid-level exception.

Okogie, 23, was selected 20th in the 2018 draft. In his four seasons with the Timberwolves, he has played a total of 244 games, 123 of them as a starter. However, his relevance in the team has been diminishing until it plummeted in the last course, in which he has averaged 2.7 points and 1.4 rebounds in just over ten minutes per game.
