MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Rick Adelman said the Minnesota Timberwolves had to be aggressive once free agency started to address the team's roster shortcomings. There is no other way to describe their start.

The Timberwolves hosted Boston Celtics free-agent Greg Stiemsma on Sunday and were working hard to bring in Portland restricted free-agent Nicolas Batum for a visit, two days after visiting Brandon Roy in Seattle.

The Wolves also reportedly were scheduling a visit for forward Jordan Hill and have expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Jamal Crawford.

After not extending qualifying offers to Michael Beasley and Anthony Randolph, the Wolves freed up more than $12 million to use in free agency. They could create more room by trading Martell Webster and Brad Miller and using the amnesty clause on Darko Milicic.
