Timberwolves sign Leandro Bolmaro

When the Timberwolves traded up to get Leandro Bolmaro last November in the 2020 NBA Draft (yes, it was less than a year ago… it still feels weird), the question was would it be a year or two before Bolmaro came over from Barcelona to play in the NBA. The answer is one. Minnesota reached a deal and Bolmaro will be with the Timberwolves in training camp, the team announced Saturday. This is not a surprise; he was expected to come over this season. He will be playing on a rookie scale contract.
Leandro Bolmaro was drafted by the New York Knicks in 2020 but his rights were traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves and the team has been keeping an eye on him with the intention of adding the Argentinian guard to the roster for the 2021-22 campaign. Gersson Rosas, Timberwolves’ President of Basketball Operations, mentioned as much back in May this year and, according to Infobae, the sides will go through with a three-year deal and Bolmaro will join the team at the start of next week. Barcelona will be paid a buyout of 900,000 euros (750,000 by Minnesota).
Darren Wolfson: Talked w/ #Timberwolves POBO Rosas. Asked him if we can read into the posted pics of Bolmaro’s recent MN trip being a sign he’s coming this summer. “I think it’s fair.” On Ant rehab, “Things are positive.” 1 more: “Way we build this team will be through trade this offseason.”
