Timberwolves Free Agency: Draft Pick Robbie Hummel Could Play In Spain, According To Report

The Minnesota Timberwovles have been quite active this summer trying to upgrade the roster to compliment the young talent remaining in Minnesota led by Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. The additions of guard Brandon Roy and forward Andrei Kirilinko along with rookie guard Alexey Shved have raised expectations.

But all of the player moves have created a glut of forwards which may have second round draft pick Robbie Hummel looking to play in Europe. Other summer trades added Dante Cunningham and Chase Buddinger to the mix which leaves little room for Hummel to earn a spot in the playing rotation let alone a guarantee to make the roster out of camp.

According to HoopsHype, Hummel is close to signing with Spanish club Obradoiro which would allow Hummel to get paid and continue developing his game on the court. Hummel has plenty to prove after surviving two ACL surgeries at Purdue.
