Minnesota signs Wells, Lee

The Minnesota Timberwolves signed veteran swingman Bonzi Wells and rookie guard Malcolm Lee on Thursday.

Wells last played in the NBA during the 2007-08 season, when he split the year with Houston and New Orleans.

Lee was drafted 43rd overall out of UCLA in the 2011 draft by the Chicago Bulls but was acquired by Minnesota in a draft-day trade.

Last season, Lee averaged 13.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 33.1 minutes a game for the Bruins, earning him First Team All-Pac-10 and Pac-10 All-Defensive Team honors.
