Jerry Zgoda: Look for the Wolves to announce the Shved signing as early as tomorrow, getting it done before he starts playing for Russia in London Twitter

Russian guard Alexey Shved has agreed to a three-year, $10 million deal with the Timberwolves and said coach Rick Adelman's faith in young players helped convince him to pick Minnesota, according to a Monday, July 23, interview with R-Sport, a division of RIA Novosti, Russia's state news agency. "Minnesota's a good, young and ambitious team," said Shved, who also had offers from the Memphis Grizzlies and Cleveland Cavaliers. "All those factors were reasons to choose this club in particular, plus coach Adelman. They say that Rick trusts young players and discovers talents, and I'm ready to work for my part."
