Timberwolves' Draft Pick Hummel Familiar With Minnesota
If Robbie Hummel is looking for a comfortable setting to continue his comeback from two major knee injuries, it would be hard for him to pick a better place than Minnesota.
The Timberwolves picked the Purdue forward with the 58th overall pick on Thursday night, confident that he is fully recovered from two torn ACLs in his right knee.
Hummel said Friday that he has been coming to Minnesota with his family for years. His great-grandfather built a cabin on Pelican Lake near Brainerd that brought his family to the area for years, his grandparents are from Blue Earth and a great-uncle is the principal at a metro area high school.
Hummel calls it a dream come true and says he can't wait to get started.
