The Timberwolves will sign Tyus Battle of Syracuse to an Exhibit 10 contract, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Their mutual interest was first reported by Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic (Twitter link).
The 6’6″ guard posted a 17.2/3.3/2.5 line during his junior season with the Orange. He also has international experience, winning a gold medal with the U.S. team in the 2014 FIBA Under-17 World Championships.
Battle will likely join the Wolves’ Summer League entry and can earn a bonus of up to $50K if he comes to training camp with Minnesota and spends at least 60 days with its G League affiliate.
