Hollis-Jefferson, who began his career with the Brooklyn Nets after being selected 23rd overall in the 2015 NBA Draft, reunites with former Nets teammates in D'Angelo Russell and Ed Davis in Minnesota. This continues a busy offseason for the Wolves, highlighted by selecting Anthony Edwards with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, trading to bring back Ricky Rubio and re-signing prolific scoring guard Malik Beasley.
Minnesota opens the 2020 preseason on Dec. 12 when it hosts Rookie of the Year Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies.
