Minnesota Timberwolves sign Ohio State's Keita Bates-Diop

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed rookie forward Keita Bates-Diop to an undisclosed deal.

The team announced the signing on Saturday.

Bates-Diop, from Ohio State, was drafted by the Timberwolves last month in the second round at No. 48.

Bates-Diop was the leading scorer in the Big Ten as a fourth-year senior in 2017-18 at 19.8 points per game. He was limited to nine games as a junior because of a leg injury and took a redshirt for the 2016-17 season.

The 6-foot-7, 235-pound Bloomington, Illinois native finished his college career as a 47.2 percent shooter from the field.
