After the Pistons released Garza following the season, and the second-year big man was aiming to find a new team.
The Minnesota Timberwolves officially signed Garza to a deal, which figures to be a unique contract:
Garza likely is on an Exhibit-10 contract, meaning he could compete for a roster spot during next month's training camp.
Per DetroitNews.com, the former Hawkeye played for the Trailblazers summer league team prior to signing with the Timberwolves on Tuesday.
Garza, who was a 2-time All-American and 2-time Big Ten Player of the Year while in Iowa City, will look to catch on with Minnesota following a brief stint with Portland and Detroit.
After being selected in the second round at 52nd overall in last year's draft, Garza averaged 5.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in limited action at the NBA level.
