Robbie Hummel Re-Signs With Minnesota Timberwolves

The second year NBA player will, indeed, get a second year in the NBA.

One guy down, three to go.

After the Minnesota Timberwolves cut Robbie Hummel a few weeks ago his NBA future looked grim. Fortunately, he will not be a one-and-done guy in the League. Rob has agreed to come back to the Timberwolves tonight, signing a one-year deal worth approximately...

Here is what SBNation's Canis Hoopus is saying about the deal:

It's good to have Hummel back. He is the sort of useful, inexpensive player the Wolves should be looking for to round out their bench. He's a combo forward who can spend some time as a small ball four, which is important given the lack of power forwards on the roster as it stands.

An interesting note is that the article also mentions that Glenn Robinson III, who was drafted in the second round by Minnesota, may be headed to Europe as part of the deal so the T'Wolves can retain his rights. As you know, this is what Rob did right after he was drafted two years ago.

The good news is that Rob gets to stay in the League and has another year to prove himself. Once again, I'll work with the Pacers as well to see if we can do another Robbie Hummel Night ticket deal when they come through Indianapolis.

Now, to just get E'Twaun Moore on a roster (and maybe Chris Kramer and JaJuan Johnson?)
