              === Timberwolves add Josh Howard, release Conroy ===
 
 Minneapolis,  MN (Sports  Network) -  The Minnesota  Timberwolves have  signed
 forward Josh Howard, pending a physical.
 
 The  team also waived guard Will Conroy to make room for Howard, the nine-year
 veteran out of Wake Forest.
 
 Howard averaged 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 43 games for Utah last year. He
 owns career averages of 14.5 points and 5.7 rebounds over 496 games, including
 399 starts, for Dallas, Washington and Utah.

 Budinger  underwent knee surgery on Tuesday and joins Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio,
 Brandon Roy and J.J. Barea on the sideline for Minnesota.
 
 Conroy had limited minutes in four games for the Wolves this season.
