MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed first-round draft pick Zach LaVine.

The Timberwolves announced the signing on Tuesday on the second day of a camp to prepare LaVine and others for the team’s summer league competition in Las Vegas. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

LaVine was the 13th overall pick out of UCLA last month. He averaged 9.5 points and 2.5 rebounds as a freshman last season. But the Timberwolves believe LaVine’s versatility and athleticism will eventually make him an impact player in the NBA.

Team president and coach Flip Saunders called LaVine “exceptional” after the team’s first workout on Monday and says he has no doubt the 19-year-old can play both guard positions.
