The Minnesota Timberwolves are seeking to sign a free agent on a one-year deal and are targeting shooting guard Evan Turner, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com.

Turner, 25, was acquired by the Pacers in a midseason trade after averaging 17.4 points in 54 games for the 76ers.

His playing time dipped in Indiana as he started only two games and averaged 7.1 points. He logged four total minutes in the Eastern Conference Finals series against Miami.

Indiana elected not to extend a qualifying offer to keep Turner.

Minnesota has reportedly engaged in talks with multiple teams about a trade for star power forward Kevin Love, who can become a free agent next summer by opting out of the final year of his contract.

The Timberwolves appointed president of basketball operations Flip Saunders as head coach after the team went 40-42 and failed to make the playoffs last season under Rick Adelman, who announced in April that he would retire.
