Anthony Brown, a free agent guard who has played in 40 NBA games with three different teams over the past two seasons, agreed to a two-way contract with the Timberwolves.
The deal was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Brown, 24, was a second-round pick by the Lakers in 2015 out of Stanford. The 6-7 Brown played 29 games for Los Angeles as a rookie before being waived. He played nine games for New Orleans and two for Orlando last season.
Brown was an All-Star for Erie in the NBA D-League (now the G-League) last season. His contract with the Wolves means he likely will spend most of the season for their G-League team in Des Moines. Players on two-way deals are allowed to spend no more than 45 days with the NBA team.
Smith leads Women's State Amateur
Kate Smith fired a 2-under par 69 to take a three-shot lead through 36 holes at the Minnesota Golf Association Women's Amateur at Northland Country Club in Duluth.
Alex Stewart, who led following the opening round Monday, carded a 4-over par 75 Tuesday to sit in second place at 146, while two-time winner and defending champion, Sarah Burnham,is in third place at 147.
"My ball striking has been really well this week—I think I hit 17 greens [Tuesday], so you can't complain about that," Smith said after the second round. "I made a lot of seven-footers that kept me in it.
"I just need to keep doing what I did the last couple days. I've got my mom on the bag, so she's been keeping me calm and I'm learning to love Northland and appreciate the views. I'm trying to stay consistent and away from the big numbers."
Smith etched her name in Minnesota golf history last June by becoming the only player to win five consecutive Class 2A individual state titles at Detroit Lakes. Her most recent victory came at the 2016 Resorters Championship at Alexandria Golf Club.
She won two individual titles at the MGA Team Championship (2012, 2013), with one team victory in 2013.
Following her high school career, Smith began her freshman season at the University of Nebraska last fall and notched four top-10 finishes and seven top-25 finishes to begin her collegiate career. She claimed a school record for scoring average for the Cornhuskers this spring with a 73.90 average in 11 events.
Burnham enters Wednesday's final round four shots back of Smith after she carded a 3-over par 74 during the first round and came back with a round of 73 on Tuesday.
Natalie Roth, a former high school teammate of Smith and co-medalist at the 2013 Class 2A championship, posted a 78 to begin the championship Monday and bounced back with a 1-under par 70 to sit alone in fourth place at 148.
