MINNEAPOLIS – Rookie guard Zach LaVine, a former Bothell High School standout, has signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

LaVine, 19, turned pro after one season at UCLA and was the 13th player taken in last month’s NBA draft.

According to a report in the Star Tribune of Minneapolis, the league’s salary scale for rookies “suggests LaVine signed a three-year deal worth $5,370,000, with $1,713,200 coming in the first year.”

LaVine is expected to play in the Las Vegas Summer League, perhaps as soon as Saturday.

After the team picked LaVine, Flip Saunders, Timberwolves coach and president of basketball operations, said, “He’s the best athlete in the draft and he has great speed. What I love about him is, defensively this past year, he had 28 (isolation) situations and he got beat off the dribble one time. I believe he has the ability to be an elite-type player.”
