Minnesota Timberwolves: Robbie Hummel Resigning Grade By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… Contract: 1 season, minimum As a fan of Hummel I love that he is still in the NBA. He said no to the NBA on multiple occasions in college to stay at Purdue, yet tore his knee and there was a strong chance that he wouldn’t be able to make it to where he is today. However...

Wolves bring back Hummel with one-year, guaranteed contract

MINNEAPOLIS -- On his own, Robbie Hummel isn't the answer. But he'll have an opportunity to become part of it. No proposed trade for disenchanted power forward Kevin Love is going to net the Timberwolves equal return -- these forced deals involving superstars rarely do.

Per 48 minutes, Muhammad averaged 23.7 points and 8.8 boards. His slashing, at-times frenzied style of play didn&...
