Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have exercised the one-year option on forward Dante Cunningham's contract for the 2013-14 season.

Cunningham posted career highs in scoring (8.7 ppg), rebounds (5.1 rpg) and assists (0.8 apg) while appearing in 80 games, including nine starts, during the 2012-13 campaign.

"It was important for us to bring Dante back," Minnesota president of basketball operations Flip Saunders said. "We all saw last year how he fits in really well with coach (Rick) Adelman's style and system. His versatility, energy and ability to knock down the open jumper are all reasons we feel he is an invaluable piece to our team. We are excited to have Dante back for next season."

A second-round selection (33rd overall) of Portland in 2009, the 26-year-old Cunningham owns career averages of 6.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 285 career games with Minnesota, Memphis, Charlotte and Portland.
