Derrick Williams Officially Signed By Minnesota Timberwolves

It was all but a formality, but the Minnesota Timberwolves officially signed second overall pick Derrick Williams on Monday morning. Malcolm Lee, the team's second round pick, remains unsigned for the moment.

The Timberwolves officially announced the move by way of the team's public relations Twitter account, but it was long expected to happen within the first few days of training camp opening. The lockout obviously delayed his signing by quite a bit, but he's now under contract for the foreseeable future.

Williams was schedule to make within 20 percent of $3,955,400 -- either above or below -- for his first season under the last collective bargaining agreement. The new rookie salary scale hasn't been released as of yet, but it was assumed to be similar within the first two seasons of the new CBA.

Williams averaged 17.8 points and 7.7 rebounds in his college career, shooting 58.6 percent from the field and 51.1 percent from three-point range in 69 games. His 1,227 total points are the most ever by an Arizona Wildcat in his first two seasons.
