The Iowa Wolves, the NBA G League affiliate of the Minnesota Timberwolves, today announced the team has acquired center Diamond Stone.
Stone (6-11, 255) appeared in 31 games last season with the Windy City Bulls and Salt Lake City Stars. The former Maryland Terrapin averaged 16.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists during the 2017-18 NBA G League season.
Selected by the New Orleans Pelicans with the No. 40 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Stone’s draft rights were traded to the Los Angeles Clippers on draft night. He appeared in seven games for the Clippers during the 2016-17 season.
Iowa traded for Stone’s returning rights on Nov. 14 from Salt Lake City. In exchange, the Stars received the returning player rights to Wes Washpun and a third-round selection in the 2019 NBA G League Draft.
The Wolves begin a two-game homestand on Saturday, Dec. 1 against the Northern Arizona Suns at 7:00 p.m. CT.
