Greg Stiemsma has had a long road to the NBA. The 6'11" center went undrafted in the 2008 NBA Draft and spent a few years post-college bouncing around FIBA leagues and the D-League. He was briefly signed to contracts with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Boston Celtics, but was waived by both teams. He finally made his NBA debut with the Boston Celtics in the lockout-shortened 2011-12 NBA season and played in 55 games, proving to be a beast off the bench on defense.
Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston reports that Stiemsma has agreed to terms on a deal with the Timberwolves. It's hoped that Stiemsma will see continued playing time in the 2012-13 season and continue to be an asset on defense for a promising T-Wolves team that will have Kevin Love and a returning Ricky Rubio.
