Timberwolves sign ex-Badger Stiemsma


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed center Greg Stiemsma.

The Timberwolves announced the move on Tuesday. Stiemsma is signed for the team's final game on Wednesday and through next season, if he makes the team out of training camp in the fall.

The 6-foot-11 former University of Wisconsin big man had been playing for the Sioux Falls Skyforce in the NBA's developmental league.

The 24-year-old Stiemsma was averaging 8.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and a league-leading 3.6 blocks per game for the Skyforce. He finished fifth on Wisconsin's all-time list for blocked shots with 96.
