Report: T-Wolves draft pick heading to Europe

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Minnesota's second-round draft pick Robbie Hummel (http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaab/players/72819) says he will play in Europe rather than the NBA next season.Hummel tells the Lafayette Journal and Courier he has agreed to a deal with El Obradoiro, which plays in Spain (http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/london-2012/spain/)'s top professional league.
He says the deal was made with the approval of the Timberwolves, who drafted Hummel 58th overall in June. Hummel says Minnesota has a lot of forwards on the roster, but believes the Timberwolves and the NBA are still in his future.
Hummel starred at Purdue and was considered their top player until tearing the ACL in his right knee twice in less than 12 months.
He finished ninth on the Boilermakers' career scoring list (1,772), fourth in rebounds (862), fourth in 3-pointers (216) and seventh in blocks (112).

From his interviews it seems like he and the Wolves have discussed it being a one year deal to get more playing time in a good league then coming back over. We'll see if that happens, but that seems to be the plan.

I am not counting Hummel out in terms of playing in the league. Sure, he isn't the quickest guy ever, but he can shoot the rock and has good size. If someone like Kyle Singler finds a role I would not rule out Robby Hummel.

If we can play well and above all avoid injury for a year the Timberwolves might find room for him next year.
