2012 NBA Draft Results: Minnesota Timberwolves Select Robbie Hummel With 58th Overall Pick

With the 58th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves selected Robbie Hummel, forward out of Purdue.

After roughly four hours of waiting through 57 picks, the Timberwolves took a solid talent in Hummel who should be able to stick on the roster at worst and provide a little bit of everything off the bench as a best case. Hummel suffered back-to-back ACL tears in his right knee while at Purdue before finishing his senior season without incident. Hummel remains a risk but has been going through pre-draft workouts without a knee brace to prove he is healthy and ready to give the NBA a shot.

The 6'8" forward has a strong all-around game, averaging 16.3 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game in his final season at Purdue. Hummel showed his perimeter shooting range by making 72 three-pointers while shooting 38.3% from behind the arc, the type of skill that could make him a nice spot-up threat to spread defenses in the NBA.
