Wolves don't offer qualifiers to Randolph or Beasley

A little late, but in case you missed it, the Timberwolves made a move that shouldn’t come as a relief, but totally does. From ESPN:

The Minnesota Timberwolves declined to make qualifying offers to Beasley and Anthony Randolphon Saturday, making them both unrestricted free agents.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but a lot of (fatalist) Timberwolves fans expected the Wolves to extend offers to both Randolph and Beasley despite two years’ evidence that we weren’t going to see much production from either player. Both are tantalizing talents, but neither are productive players.

One thing to keep in mind: the Wolves still own Bird rights, so sign and trades are still an option. We will have much more on this topic coming up, both on the cap space this creates and the future destinations for Beasley and Randolph.
