On Wednesday, the Minnesota Timberwolves signed guard Alexey Shved.
The team is super excited about the transition! Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn said it best. "Alexey has been regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe for the past few seasons and will be a tremendous addition to our club. He is a smooth, fast-paced player who brings great shooting and passing abilities to our team. He will fit in well with our style of play and we look forward to seeing him a Timberwolves uniform."
He has spent the last six years playing for the CSKA Moscow in the Russian League and averaged 11.6 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 23 games. Sounds like he will be a good asset to the team!
