Minnesota Timberwolves sign first-round pick Zach LaVine
The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms with first-round pick Zach LaVine, according to a report from the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The Timberwolves selected the former UCLA guard with the 13th pick in June's draft.
The team didn't release details of the contract, but the NBA's rookie salary scale would dictate a three-year contract worth just over $5.3 million with a fourth-year option.
In college, LaVine averaged 9.4 points, 1.8 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game. LaVine will play for Minnesota's summer league team, which plays its first game Saturday against Dallas.
