Minnesota Timberwolves center Greg Stiemsma has done his fair share of traveling. Since leaving the University of Wisconsin after playing four years at the school, Stiemsma was a nomad playing for a variety of teams abroad. He played for a couple of teams in both Turkey and South Korea with some stints in the D-League mixed in between. Eventually, he found a home with the Boston Celtics, but in August 2012 ventured off to play for the Timberwolves.
Stiemsma signed a 2-year, $5.27 million deal with the Timberwolves; however, his guaranteed salary for the 2013-14 season may be eliminated by the team if they choose to decline their option for the forthcoming season. If the Timberwolves keep Stiemsma, he will be paid more than $2 million for the season.
Meanwhile, Stiemsma has picked up new representation. He was formerly represented by Chicago, Illinois-based basketball agent Mike Naiditch. He is now represented by Priority Sports & Entertainment. Should the Timberwolves opt not to pick up their option on Stiemsma, Priority Sports will be responsible to find and negotiate his next deal and earn a commission therefrom.
