Thibs getting the band back together: Taj Gibson agrees to deal with Timberwolves

Not to be outdone by Jimmy Butler's reunion with head coach Tom Thibodeau, Taj Gibson is reportedly also on his way to Minnesota.

The former Bulls power forward has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $28 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Gibson played for Thibodeau the first six seasons of his NBA career. He averaged 9.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 24.7 minutes per game, including a career-best season in 2013-14 (13.0 points, 6.8 rebounds).

The Bulls dealt Gibson at February's trade deadline to the Oklahoma City Thunder along with Doug McDermott. He averaged 9.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in a smaller role behind Steven Adams and Enes Kanter.

In Minnesota he'll be tasked to be the veteran - along with Butler - on a young Timberwolves team that features budding star Karl-Anthony Towns.
