Robbie Hummel Signs To Play In Italy

FRIDAY, 7:58am: The deal is official, the team announced (on Twitter; hat tip to Carchia).

11:48am: It’s a one-year deal and it does not include any NBA outs, a source tells David Pick of (on Twitter).

THURSDAY, 8:46am: Olimpia Milano has reached agreement on a deal with small forward Robbie Hummel, according to sources who spoke with Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. Hummel spent the previous two seasons with the Timberwolves.

Back in June, Wolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders indicated he would like to retain Hummel for the coming season.  Saunders extended the forward the qualifying offer of more than $1.147MM later that month, but he pulled it in early July.  That move appeared to be more about roster space than finances as the Wolves would go on to ink draft-and-stash prospect Nemanja Bjelica days later.  The Trail Blazers, Nuggets, Kings, and Cavaliers all reportedly expressed interest, though the two Northwest Division teams were said to have the most interest of the bunch.

Hummel, 26, averaged 3.3 PPG and 2.5 RPG in 2013/2014 and 4.4 PPG and 3.0 RPG this past season.  The forward has experience playing overseas as the Wolves allowed him to play in Spain during his rookie season.  During his time with Spain’s Obradoiro, Hummel put up 10.1 PPG and 3.8 RPG.
