The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has waived center Darko Milicic, designating him as the team's amnesty player. The amnesty provision allows a team to waive one player and not have his salary count against the salary cap or luxury tax.

Milicic spent parts of three seasons as Minnesota's starting center, averaging 7.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over 122 games, 110 starts with the Wolves. The Wolves originally acquired the 7-foot-0 center from the New York Knicks on Feb. 17, 2010.

Kevin Love isn’t your typical big man. In the NBA this season, he developed into a Top-5 scorer who can rebound at will, make plays when it matters most and step outside to the 3-point line when he sees fit.

He’s versatile, and it’s why he’s a two-time NBA All-Star and the leader of his Minnesota club. And it’s part of the reason why he was selected Saturday to represent his country as part of the U.S. Men’s Basketball team.
