Wolves Sign Stiemsma


From the Timberwolves site:

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed 6-11 center Greg Stiemsma for the remainder of the 2009-10 season and for the 2010-11 season. Per team policy, terms of the contract offer were not disclosed.


In the most recent NBA transaction involving a former Badger, Greg Stiemsma was called up to the Minnesota Timberwolves on April 13 after rising to the challenge during the NBA Development League playoffs. After averaging 8.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in his 45 games with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, Stiemsma tallied averages of 15.0 points and 10.7 rebounds per game during the playoffs.
Stiemsma recently recorded his highest-scoring game of the season on April 9 when he tallied 24 points, 10 rebounds and eight blocks in 35 minutes to help his team defeat Tulsa in the first game of the NBDL playoffs.


From Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune:

Stiemsma averaged 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds for the Badgers, but raised those numbers to 8.8 points and 7.1 rebounds, plus a D League-best 3.6 blocks, with the Sioux Fall Skyforce. The 24-year-old was a teammate at Wisconsin for three seasons with guard Alando Tucker, who played four games with the Wolves earlier this season.
