HoopsHype Greg Stiemsma rumors

August 2, 2012 Updates

Stiemsma signed a two-year contract that fits into the “room” exception slot -- $2.575 million – for teams under the salary cap, but the second year is not guaranteed, in good measure so the Wolves can be sure his feet are healthy. He was limited from February through the playoffs because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot and a bone bruise in the right foot. He withdrew from playing for the U.S. Select team against Olympians in Las Vegas last month because he was receiving treatment for the plantar fasciitis, a troublesome condition that has ended more than one NBA career.

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed unrestricted free-agent center Greg Stiemsma to a contract. Per team policy, terms of the contract offer were not disclosed. "Greg had a fine rookie season for the Boston Celtics and is just beginning to mature as a player," said David Kahn, Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations. "The physical nature of his game and his ability to rebound and block shots will be a welcome addition to our front court." NBA.com

Bayno will travel to Montenegro for two weeks in August to work with center Nikola Pekovic, who should be cleared by then for full-contact practice after undergoing May surgery to remove bone spurs from his ankle. Newly signed center Greg Stiemsma -- who will be officially introduced Thursday at Target Center -- will either work with Bayno and Pekovic in Montenegro or with Bayno in Los Angeles next month.
