We don’t know which team presented Greg Stiemsma with an offer sheet. But the Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly ready to offer him $3 million for one season, and another mystery suitor has reportedly presented him with an offer the Celtics almost certainly won’t be able to match. (ESPN Boston)

Restricted free-agent center Greg Stiemsma has received an offer from a new suitor, according to a league source.

The Celtics extended a $1.05 million qualifying offer to Stiemsma before the free-agency period, while the Timberwolves have expressed consistent interest in the 6-foot-11 big man this offseason. But while Stiemsma’s camp awaits an offer sheet from Minnesota, it appears a third team has entered the fray.

This offer, when formally delivered, will almost certainly price Boston out of the Stiemsma Sweepstakes. Given their cap constraints, the Celtics are unable to match even a modest offer for his services, with only the biannual exception ($1.95 million) remaining above a minimum contract and Boston nearing the luxury-tax threshold.

Buh-bye Stiemer, in all likelihood, and hello garbage heap of semi-functioning big men.
