MINNEAPOLIS — Mike Conley Jr. is sticking with the Minnesota Timberwolves for a while. 

On Friday, the team officially announced that Conley signed a contract extension. 

The Wolves did not specify the agreement, per team policy. However, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier this week that the 36-year-old starting point guard agreed to a two-year, $21 million contract extension with the Wolves. 

Conley was set to hit the free agent market this summer. The move solidifies the team's starting lineup going into next season.

The Wolves are currently on top of the Western Conference this season, with Conley providing a steady veteran presence for the team.

This season was Conley's first full season with the Wolves. He's averaged 10.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 6.4 assists while shooting just over 44% overall and on three-pointers, according to the NBA.

The team recently added some depth to the point guard position when they traded for the Detroit Pistons' Monte Morris.
