Wolves waive PG Lorenzo Brown, 2 others

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves have waived point guard Lorenzo Brown and two others to get down to the roster limit of 15 players.

The Wolves also waived forward Nick Wiggins, second-year star Andrew Wiggins' older brother, and center Kleon Penn on Saturday.

Brown had a partly guaranteed deal and was competing with stretch forward Damjan Rudez for the final roster spot. But with Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine, Andre Miller and Tyus Jones already on the roster, the Wolves were fully stocked at point guard and had no room for Brown.

Rudez also impressed with his 3-point shooting, a dimension the Wolves roster lacks on the whole.

The Wolves open the regular season on Wednesday in Los Angeles against the Lakers.
