Taj Gibson arrested for driving with suspended license

Forward Taj Gibson, who recently agreed to a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, was arrested in New York City on Thursday for driving with a suspended license, according to police.

Police officers observed Gibson making an illegal U-turn in Queens early Thursday morning. When police stopped him, Gibson provided an Illinois license that was found to be suspended. He was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation and given a traffic violation for the illegal U-turn.

Gibson was released by police and is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 1.

Gibson agreed to a 2-year, $28 million deal with Minnesota this week, reuniting him with coach Tom Thibodeau, who coached the 32-year-old from 2010 to 2015 while both were in Chicago.

On Saturday, Thibodeau said the deal isn't done yet, but hopes "it will be wrapped up in the next day or so."
