The Timberwolves signed Robbie Hummel to a one year 900,000 contract yesterday. A somewhat versatile forward given the fact he can play either the 3 or 4, Hummel provides the team with an adequate three point shooter who can stretch the floor. Even better about his game – he rarely turns the ball over.
In the 655 minutes he played last year, he turned the ball over only 10 times. As stated by Dan Feldman of Pro Basketball Talk, his 5.2% Turnover Percentage was the second lowest Turnover Percentage in the league, behind only Ryan Anderson.
As odd of a compliment as this is going to sound – but Hummel has this great ability to just not screw up badly. His ability to hit three pointers at a decent rate (36%) while also not making mistakes that lead to points for the opposition is what’s keeping him in the league.
Signing Hummel does raise concerns about the development of Glenn Robinson III. But at the moment, who knows if there will be any GRIII development on the T-Wolves. From Doogie:
Lots of GRIII questions. Nothing decided yet on #Twolves end. He has zero Europe plans. Tough fit here if they ultimately get Wiggins.

With the signing of Hummel, the Wolves will have 14 players signed under guaranteed contracts for the upcoming season.
