MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have finalized their contract with No. 2 overall draft pick Derrick Williams and signed him to his rookie deal.
Williams participated in the first three days of Timberwolves training camp despite not officially being signed. The paperwork was completed, but had yet to be formally entered in by the league. The process was finished on Monday morning.
The versatile forward from Arizona is expected to get plenty of minutes in a frontcourt that also includes Kevin Love, Michael Beasley and Anthony Randolph.
Minnesota's second-round pick, UCLA shooting guard Malcolm Lee, is participating in training camp so far without a formal deal. Lee is hoping the impression he makes in camp will help influence the team to sign him.
