CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Former Southeast Missouri forward Tyler Stone and former Murray State forward Ivan Iaska were added to the Minnesota Timberwolves summer league roster this week.

Stone averaged 14.5 points and 7.5 rebounds for Denizli Belediye in Turkey a year ago. He is one of 13 players on Minnesota's summer league roster. Ivan Aska (F, Murray State), Kyle Barone (F/C, Idaho), Lorenzo Brown (G, North Carolina State), Brady Heslip (G, Baylor), Othyus Jeffers (G, Robert Morris), Tyus Jones (G, Duke), Zach LaVine (G, UCLA), Jordan Morgan (F, Michigan), Adreian Payne (F/C, Michigan State), Sam Thompson (F, Ohio State), No. 1 draft pick Karl-Anthony Towns (F/C, Kentucky) and C.J. Williams (G, North Carolina State) are the others.

A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Stone was a three-year starter at Southeast. He earned First-Team All-Ohio Valley Conference honors in 2013-14 and garnered second-team all-conference accolades in both 2011-12 and 2012-13. Stone finished his career ranked fifth at Southeast in scoring (1,546 points), tied for 10th in scoring average (16.4 ppg), third in field goals made (621), third in field goals attempted (1,191), seventh in rebounds (768), fourth in rebounding average (8.2 rpg), second in blocks (124) and fourth in games started (84).

Teams will compete in three preliminary round games from July 10-14 before being seeded in a tournament that starts on July 15 and concludes with the Championship Game on July 20. Each team is guaranteed to play at least five games.
