The Timberwolves reached the contract agreement with forward Robbie Hummel on a one-year deal Monday.
His signing will bring the team’s number of guaranteed contracts to 14, one short of the 15-man roster limit.
The Wolves, barring other moves, have one roster spot left with which to sign second-round pick Glenn Robinson III or another player, unless they trade or buy out the final year of Alexey Shved’s contract.
Hummel’s deal came the same day free agent Evan Turner agreed to sign with Boston after the Celtics and Wolves both pursued him.
A second-round pick in 2012, Hummel — a former Purdue star — played one season in Spain before playing his rookie NBA season last year.
He helps solidified a power-forward position that could be thin now that veteran Dante Cunningham is not expected to be re-signed and if star Kevin Love is traded without the Wolves receiving a power forward in return.
