Undrafted Kentucky guard Ashton Hagans has agreed to a two-way deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.

The sophomore averaged 11.5 points, 6.4 assists and 3.9 rebounds in 2019-20 and figures to provide the Timberwolves with another option in their backcourt.

Minnesota used the No. 1 overall pick on shooting guard Anthony Edwards and then completed a trade to bring point guard Ricky Rubio back to the franchise. The club also acquired another shooting guard in Leandro Bolmaro, along with power forward Jaden McDaniels.

The T-Wolves have eight guards on the roster with the addition of Hagans, but the nature of the UK product’s contract should allow him to develop at his own pace in the G League.

His presence also helps provide some organizational depth for a Minnesota club that looks to contend in the near future with Edwards joining Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell.
