It looks like Tyus Jones is moving on from Minnesota.
The restricted free-agent point guard has agreed to a three-year, $28 million offer sheet with the Grizzlies.
Jones’ agent, Kevin Bradbury of BDA Sports, confirmed the news to ESPN as he congratulated his client on Twitter.

“Ready for a great new opportunity,” Bradbury tweeted. “Congrats to my man @1Tyus.”
The Timberwolves will have two days to match the offer sheet or Jones will become a member of Memphis’ squad.
Earlier Sunday, the Grizzlies traded guard Delon Wright to the Mavericks for a pair of second-round picks. The 27-year-old then agreed to a three-year contract worth $29 million.
Jones, 23, was selected out of Duke with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2015 draft after helping the Blue Devils win the national championship as a freshman.
He averaged 6.9 points and 4.8 assists for the Timberwolves last season.
