The Wolves have added former lottery pick and Blaine's own Patrick O'Bryant to their Las Vegas Summer League roster.
They've also invited former Gophers Damian Johnson and Lawrence Westbrook and Southern Indiana guard Jamar Smith, who also played at Illinois, to try out for one or two Vegas spots when they begin three days of workouts at Target Center on July 8.
There's also a chance second-round pick Nemanja Bjelica will be added to the roster before the team leaves for Vegas and its first game on July 12.
O'Bryant, a 7-foot center who just turned 24, has played for three teams in his four NBA seasons.
Here's the roster as it's set now.
Deon Thompson, North Carolina power forward went undrafted last week.
Jeremy Pargo, the former Gonzaga guard who played in Israel last year.
Mo Charlo, an athletic 6-7 forward who played for Reno in the D League last season.
Cedric SImmons, former NC State 6-9 forward.
Greg Stiemsma, former D League center who signed with Wolves right before season's end so Al Jefferson could have a summer workout and just in his case his non-guaranteed contract is needed in the right trade.
