Glenn Robinson III signs guaranteed contract with Minnesota Timberwolves

Glenn Robinson III left Michigan after his sophomore year and was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 40th pick in the NBA Draft. Being selected in the second round meant that Robinson wasn’t guaranteed a contract and with an NBA offseason filled with roster moves and trade, his status was up in the air until today.

Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Robinson signed a guaranteed contract with the Timberwolves and will join the team at the start of training camp.

Robinson averaged 7.7 points and three rebounds per game with the Timberwolves during the NBA Summer League. He’ll join a young Minnesota roster that features No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins, first round pick Zach LaVine and last year’s No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett.

Robinson will join Trey Burke, Jamal Crawford, Mitch McGary, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Nik Stauskas as former Wolverines that are currently active on NBA rosters.

    You forgot to add Mitch to that list of current Wolverines in the NBA! Nonetheless, this is honestly great news for Glenn, it was looking like the T’Wolves weren’t going to have a roster spot for him!

      Looks like Mitch is there (perhaps added afterwards), but the main issue is if he gets enough PT, to guarantee that he will stick with the TWolves, and not become an NBA travel man. I sincerely hope there is enough room so he can flourish at the small forward.

        Very tough roster situation for him in Minn. Glad he’s got the guarantee because he looks like a long shot to get PT.

          He has an equal Shot as anyone else on the team. All he has to do is outplay the next man.

    Congrats, GRIII!!!!! I am glad his decision is paying off.

  • Mattski

    Happy for him, and feel vindicated in my belief in him by the signing. Believe that he will hang on to become a solid NBA player.

  • Chezaroo

    He has his opportunity, now what will he do with it?

  • Fred Z in Ann Arbor

    Excellent.

    Congratulations GR3. You deserve it and have done so many great things for this program and university and were a class act throughout. I will remember you forever.

    Go Blue!
