The Timberwolves signed guard Sean Kilpatrick to a 10-day contract, and he arrived in time to give them the league-mandated eight players in uniform for their game against the New York Knicks. Listing eight players on their injured list, the Wolves didn't just need a player. They needed one who wouldn't take long to get here. "We had to fulfill our rules, so we had to go find somebody that was within a train ride away," Wolves coach Flip Saunders said. Kilpatrick actually drove, arriving in the Wolves' locker room at Madison Square Garden about 45 minutes before the start. He quickly introduced himself to guard Ricky Rubio, who joined the injured ranks Thursday with a sore right ankle. ESPN.com

Kilpatrick, the former University of Cincinnati star whose family is from New York, was close enough. "We had him in before so we worked him out, so we knew about him and we've been following him, but there's no question that geography helped," Saunders said. "We had to have a guy here ready to play at 7:30." Kilpatrick has averaged 13.6 points in 42 games this season with Delaware and Santa Cruz. "We'll be undermanned," Saunders said before the game, "but guys that have complained in the past about playing time won't have to worry about it tonight." ESPN.com

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed guard Sean Kilpatrick to a 10-day contract.

Kilpatrick, 25, has averaged 13.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 42 games this season with Delaware and Santa Cruz of the NBADL. Kilpatrick, 6-4, went undrafted in the 2014 NBA Draft after a four-year career at the University of Cincinnati. Kilpatrick finished his career with averages of 15.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 140 contests, earning Second-Team All-America honors his senior season. Kilpatrick was signed by the Golden State Warriors on October 20, 2014 and waived on October 24, 2014 after playing with the Philadelphia 76ers on their 2014 NBA Summer League team. NBA.com
