Robbie Hummel RumorsAll NBA Players
Eric Pincus: The Minnesota Timberwolves have given Robbie Hummel a qualifying offer to make him a restricted free agent @BBallInsiders
Wolves forward Robbie Hummel missed his 15th consecutive game Saturday because of a fractured hand. Saunders said he hoped Hummel would be playing by now and that doctors will take a further look at it this week. Saunders also said forward Anthony Bennett probably is two weeks away from returning from a sprained ankle.

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has re-signed forward Robbie Hummel. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed. “We are excited to have Robbie back with us this season,” said Flip Saunders, Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations. “He proved that he can be a key contributor off the bench and finished the season strong. Robbie’s ability to stretch the floor with his shooting range is a valuable asset for our team.”
Jeff Zillgitt: Forward Robbie Hummel’s deal with the Timberwolves is one year, nearly $900,000 and fully guaranteed.

Jerry Zgoda: The Wolves released Othyus Jeffers & Lorenzo Brown today. That leaves Robbie Hummel, A.J. Price and Chris Johnson with one more cut to come.
Timberwolves brass has two choices when the final roster spots are filled before opening night, decisions that, barring a trade or free-agent signing, will force Flip Saunders and Rick Adelman to decide between veteran savvy and rookie potential. If it is life experiences they want, fifth-year guard A.J. Price has them and maybe then some. Price was invited to training camp partly because of his connection with new Wolves General Manager Milt Newton from the season they spent together in Washington a year ago, partly because of three seasons with the Pacers and one with the Wizards. And partly because of two transformational years in college when he went two seasons without basketball because of complicated brain surgery and his own decisions. At age 27, he is trying to stay in the NBA with an opportunity he admits was the only real one that didn’t involve playing overseas. He is competing with fellow veteran Othyus Jeffers and rookies Lorenzo Brown and Robbie Hummel for the team’s final two jobs because of what Adelman calls his professionalism and Price himself attributes to life’s lessons learned.
The Wolves today, as expected, officially announced they have signed prospects Robbie Hummel, Lorenzo Brown and Othyus Jeffers to their training-camp roster. All three played on the Wolves’ Las Vegas summer-league team. Hummel and Brown are the team’s former second-round picks, Hummel in 2012 and Brown in June. That brings the camp roster to 17 players.
Chase Budinger, Dante Cunningham, Ronny Turiaf, Shabazz Muhammad, Gorgui Dieng, Lorenzo Brown and Robbie Hummel were all on hand Friday and participating in a 5-on-5 scrimmage. The chance to come in early allows rookies like Muhammad, Dieng and Brown to get familiar with the facilities and some of the training regimens prior to Training Camp. For guys like Budinger and Cunningham, it’s a way to get re-acquainted with the day-to-day grind.
Jerry Zgoda: bud, Dieng, Turiaf, Shabazz, Hummel, Brown, Dante among those scrimmaging today at TC. Dieng goes down @ hobbles off, looks like an ankle
Taylor said it’s unlikely that Saunders will bring in a 15th guaranteed contract. In other words, forwards Robbie Hummel and Othyus Jeffers, rookie guard Lorenzo Brown and an expected to-be-determined big man will compete for the final spot in camp. Those three players, first round picks Muhammad and center Gorgui Dieng, and big man Chris Johnson arrive into town Monday for developmental work. Other players are expected to be in-and-out for informal workouts before training camp starts.
Darren Wolfson: (con.) Taylor said they don’t have interest in any avail. FA for the 15th spot. “You keep it open for a young guy (Hummel, etc).” #twolves
The Wolves expect summer-league players Robbie Hummel, Lorenzo Brown and Othyus Jeffers to be in training camp, Saunders said. The Wolves drafted Hummel in the 2010 draft’s second round and Brown in the June draft’s second round. The Wolves will have 14 players under guaranteed contracts once Pekovic signs. Saunders said he prefers to keep that 15th and final spot open “in case something happens and somebody gets hurt.”
