Naz Reid has signed a multi-year deal with the Wolves.
Reid was originally expected to sign a two-way deal, and this might be the fastest conversion to a standard contract ever. Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic is reporting that it is a four-year deal worth a max of $6.1 million, with a full guarantee on the first season. Reid averaged 12.5 points, 4.7 boards and 2.0 assists in just 18.3 mpg at Summer League and looked like one of the better big men at the Vegas circuit. The Wolves are obviously set at center in the long term, but Reid could definitely emerge as the backup with a little more seasoning.

Naz Reid scored eight points on 3-of-13 shooting while adding 10 rebounds, two dimes, a steal and a block in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.
Reid has been fairly impressive throughout the Summer League, but tonight he just couldn't buy a bucket. The silver lining is that he had the best plus-minus (plus-0) out of all the starters.

Naz Reid played the role of Alpha for the Wolves in Sunday's Summer League win over the Nets, dropping 20 points on 6-of-12 shooting from the field and 6-for-6 from the line.
Reid also hit two treys, grabbed six rebounds and swatted three shots to come up with a well-rounded two-way game. Speaking of which, the big man is on a two-way deal with them, so it's a good thing to see him put up an impressive effort like this one in Vegas.

Naz Reid was big in Wednesday's win against the Heat, double-doubling with 15 points and 10 rebounds to go with four assists, a steal and a block.
The undrafted big man hasn't made the biggest impression in Summer League, but this performance reminded of his solid play at LSU. Reid doesn't figure to make Minnesota's roster to start the season but should play well in the G-league.

Undrafted center Naz Reid has agreed to a two-way deal with the Wolves.
It was a minor upset that Reid wasn't drafted at all after posting 13.6 points, 7.2 boards, 0.9 dimes, 0.7 blocks and 0.8 triples in 27.2 minutes per game at LSU, but perhaps teams were scared off by his lacking athleticism and 14.0 percent body fat at the combine. He's a worthwhile project for the Wolves, who could find themselves a solid backup to Karl-Anthony Towns in time.
