Well, this seemed like just a matter of time. The Stiemboat is signing with the T-Wolves. Kahn finally got his man.
The Timberwolves pursued Stiemsma hard from start of free agency and the Wisconsin native heads closer to home after one season in Boston.— Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) July 21, 2012
Rumor has it that the deal is for more than the $1.96 bi-annual exception, meaning there is no way for the Celtics to match this offer, despite Stiemer being a restricted free agent. We'll keep you updated as more details become available, but there's no doubt that this is goodbye.
