Timberwolves Sign Canyon Barry, William Lee

The Timberwolves have signed a pair of players, issuing a press release to announce their deals with free agent guard Canyon Barry and rookie forward William Lee.

Barry, who finished his college career in Florida, joined the Knicks for Summer League action in 2017 after going undrafted, then played for teams in Finland and the Czech Republic. As for Lee, the former Alabama-Birmingham forward averaged 10.4 PPG and 6.8 RPG in his senior year in 2017/18 before going undrafted this spring.

Neither player figures to stick with the Timberwolves once the team sets its roster for the regular season — I imagine we’ll hear very shortly that both players have been waived. However, signing Barry and Lee to Exhibit 10 contracts will allow the Timberwolves to award them bonuses worth up to $50K apiece if they play for the Iowa Wolves – Minnesota’s G League affiliate – for at least two months this season.
