The 2017 version of the Minnesota Timberwolves Summer League team is officially set.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have officially announced their 2017 Summer League roster.
Although this year's team lacks the big star names, they have plenty of intriguing players including Marcus Paige, V.J. Beachem and Deonte Burton.
Given the new CBA which added two two-way roster spots, at least one of these players is likely to make the team with a strong showing.
Paige was drafted with the 55th overall pick last year by the Brooklyn Nets and had a very good collegiate career at North Carolina. Although he didn't play a game in the NBA, his game is fun to watch as he is a gifted passer.

Beachem was known for his shooting at the University of Notre Dame. If that can carry over to the NBA level the Wolves might have a steal.
Burton is one of the more intriguing players on this roster. Generously listed at 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds in the above graphic, he's more realistically 6-foot-4 and 266 pounds. His 6-foot-11 wingspan, however, makes him very intriguing as he can bang down low with the bigs and also guard the perimeter.
The big name, Justin Patton, won't play in Summer League at all due to a broken left foot that required surgery. This unfortunate incident reportedly happened during a recent workout.
Due to this roster, don't expect the same type of run Tyus Jones and company put on last year when Jones won Summer League MVP.
The Wolves kick off their games on July 8 against the Toronto Raptors at 5:30 p.m.
