Former Celtics Forward Finds Recent NBA Home With Timberwolves


Former Boston Celtics forward Matt Ryan is keeping his NBA dreams alive.

Ryan, who spent last season with the Celtics organization as he primarily played within the G League and flashed during Summer League before signing with the Los Angeles Lakers in September, reportedly is signing a two-way contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Athletic’s Shams Charania and Jon Krawczynski reported late Tuesday night.

Ryan played 12 games with the Lakers this season — which was 11 more contests than he played in for the Celtics throughout the 2021-22 campaign — and showed off his biggest asset during that temporary stint, which is his shooting. The 25-year-old shot 37.1% (13-for-35) from beyond the arc before the Lakers waived him last week.

The Timberwolves could sure use some more shooting as they’ve the third-worst shooting percentage within the league at 32.6%, which only trails the Charlotte Hornets and Recent York Knicks.

Ryan has definitely had an unconventional journey to the NBA as he was working DoorDash a 12 months before accompanying the Celtics to the NBA Finals this past June.

There’s a probability Ryan could make a return trip to Boston when the Timberwolves tackle the Celtics on Dec. 23 at TD Garden.
