Wolves sign Glenn Robinson III

The 40th pick in the 2014 draft will officially be on the team

From Woj at Yahoo Sports:

This is the happiness.

Given that Saunders (and even Robinson himself) have always talked as if he's been a part of the team all along, it's not much of a surprise that the Wolves would commit to him.

Flip has been effusive in his praise of Robinson, whether at his intro presser, the open scrimmage, summer league....wherever.

This deal also puts the roster at 16 players, which guarantees someone is leaving. Which in turn all but guarantees that someone is JJ Barea, who's become expendable with the additions of Mo Williams and Zach LaVine. Saunders has been trying to deal Barea to no avail. His contract is $4.5 million, which would be a hefty buyout, but it's not out of the question.

But most importantly, my dream of sending three players to the dunk contest lives on!
