Wolves agree to contract with 2nd round pick Glenn Robinson III


The Minnesota Timberwolves and Glenn Robinson III reached an agreement Tuesday on a guaranteed contract.

According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, a league source says Robinson flew to Minnesota to sign the deal and make preparations for the start of training camp.

1500 ESPN notes the 20-year-old Robinson is the son of former NBA player Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson.

Before entering the draft Glenn Robinson III spent two seasons at Michigan, leaving after his sophomore season. While he was in Ann Arbor, the Wolverines went to the NCAA Championship game and the Elite Eight.

Robinson is an athletic 6-foot-6 forward. He joins Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine as new Wolves members from the 2014 draft.

Robinson averaged 13.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 37 games for the Wolverines last season.

The Pioneer Press reports Robinson's signing is more writing on the wall that guard J.J. Barea may not be with the team when the season starts on Oct. 29.

The Wolves now have 16 players under contract for the 2014-15 season.
