Alex Kennedy - 07/01/2010 8:03pm EST- The Minnesota Timberwolves and New York Knicks are keeping an eye on restricted free agent Tyrus Thomas. Both teams have expressed interest in the forward and are expected to make a hard push for him if they can't land any of their top targets.
The Charlotte Bobcats can match any offer that Thomas receives but both Minnesota and New York have enough money to put together a deal out of Charlotte's price range.

We can def offer more than the Bobcats can and his numbers are very impressive. I heard he is a bad locker room guy, which is the only thing from Donnie Walsh really going after him. We know what the Knicks do to guys who cause clubhouse problems........benched.
Thomas can be a starter on any team and he would be a huge upgrade at defense from David Lee.
