The T-Wolves may make another addition before the start of training camp.

After a busy offseason, the Minnesota Timberwolves are thinking of adding another big man, according to Charley Walters.

And on Monday, Alex Kennedy tweeted that the T-Wolves are considering Hassan Whiteside, formerly of the Sacramento Kings.

The Timberwolves already have several big men signed on for 2012-13 -- Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Love, Andrei Kirilenko, Dante Cunningham and Greg Stiemsma -- and they can only afford to offer this new player a veteran minimum deal, which comes to about $1 million.

Because it is so close to the start of camp, the talent pool is somewhat shallow. T-Wolves fans should not expect this to be a major signing.

The team will begin camp on Oct. 2, and its regular season tips off on Nov. 2.
