This deal keeps him playing for the team through the 2022-23 season.
Not only were fans of the Timberwolves happy about this – Beverly seemed very pleased too.
Minnesota Thank You❤️🙏🏾🐺🐺🙏🏾

Taking to Twitter, Beverly said “Minnesota Thank You” on Tuesday after news of the extension was released.
There was a time when people were laughing at Beverley when he was traded to Minnesota but he and his team might end up having the last laugh.
Beverley has been having a terrific season in Minnesota.
He is averaging 9 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in 26 minutes a game since coming to the Timberwolves in the offseason.
When he was initially traded to the team, there were some that said it was a huge fall from grace for Beverley.
He is a player known for being very boisterous and confident to the point of arrogance.
At the time of his trade, the Timberwolves were seen as a team that had little chance of making it far into the postseason.
However, things have really turned around for them and there is a very good chance they will make the playoffs this year.
Right now, the team is seventh in the West with a record of 31-27.
The Timberwolves have a young, energetic team and Beverley has only helped foster their can-do spirit with his experience and NBA expertise.
Minnesota didn’t want to lose Beverley or anything that he brings to the team so signing him to an extension was a no-brainer, especially when it only cost them $13 million.
If things keep going the way they have been, you can definitely expect to see Beverley and his Timberwolves in the postseason.
