Stiemsma Officially Signs With Wolves
(Greg) Stiemsma, whose basketball career included stints in Turkey, South Korea, the development league and last season with the Boston Celtics, signed a two-year deal worth nearly $2.6 million, with the first year guaranteed.
He brings to the Wolves proven shot-blocking ability; he was second in the league last season in shots blocked per minutes played. Adding a player capable of protecting the basket was an offseason goal for David Kahn, Wolves president of basketball operations.
“It feels good to be wanted,” said Stiemsma, who played his college ball at Wisconsin. “It’s good to have your hard work pay off, to see results from that. It’s been a journey.”
