Minneapolis/St. Paul – The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the club has assigned second-year guard Jonny Flynn to the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League. Flynn is yet to appear in a game for the Wolves this season after undergoing offseason surgery on his left hip on July 27. Per NBA rules, a first- or second-year player can be assigned to the team's D-League affiliate a maximum of three times in a season. Flynn, the sixth overall pick by Minnesota in last year's draft, started each of the 81 games he appeared in as a rookie last season. He averaged 13.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists as a rookie before missing the season finale with the hip injury that ultimately required offseason surgery. He finished his first NBA season ranked 5th among the league's rookies in scoring (13.5 ppg), 4th in free-throw accuracy (82.6%), 5th in assists (4.4 apg) and 7th in steals (1.01 spg). Sioux Falls, the D-League affiliate for Minnesota and Miami, is led by head coach Tony Fritz and is currently in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with a 1-3 record. Sioux Falls begins an eight-game homestand this weekend with back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday against Iowa and Reno.

From the team's presser.
