The Minnesota Timberwolves signed second-round draft pick Glenn Robinson III on Wednesday.

Robinson, a 6-foot-6 forward from Michigan, was selected 40th overall in this year's draft.

Robinson played for the Wolves entry in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, averaging 7.7 points and 3.0 rebounds per game in six games (four starts). His best performance came in the summer league finale, totaling 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting.

Robinson played two seasons at Michigan and averaged 13.1 points per game and shot 48.8 percent from the field and 30.6 percent on 3-pointers.

He is the son of former NBA forward Glenn Robinson Jr., who was the first overall pick in the 1994 draft by the Milwaukee Bucks.
