MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed Derrick Williams, the No. 2 overall pick who was a standout at Arizona and who was named last year’s Pac-10 Player of the Year.

The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 19.5 points and 8.3 rebounds per game last season for the Wildcats. He shot 56.8 percent from three-point range last season, the second-best shooting percentage in Arizona history.

Williams averaged 17.8 points and 7.7 rebounds in his college career, shooting 58.6 percent from the field and 51.1 percent from three-point range in 69 games. His 1,227 total points are the most ever by a Wildcat in his first two seasons.
