The Wolves have checked in on free agent Amir Johnson.
Johnson seems highly duplicative on the Wolves — they already have a gritty vet who does all the little things (at a higher level) in Taj Gibson and a backup big who can't shoot threes in Gorgui Dieng. The only way this makes any sense is if the Wolves have a Dieng trade lined up, though in a vacuum Johnson on a cheap, short-term deal makes a lot of sense for most teams. He's a great veteran presence that simply plays hard and knows what to do on the court.
