Hummel had been drafted 58th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2012 NBA Draft, but worked out an agreement that allows him to go to Europe.
“It is a done deal,” Hummel told the paper. “I am heading over to Spain. I’m excited. The Timberwolves and myself both agreed that it’s probably best for me to go overseas for a year.
“(The Timberwolves) have a lot of forwards on the team, but I still think the Timberwolves are my future.”
During his career at Purdue, Hummel tore his ACL twice, battling back both times and averaging 16.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per game this past season as a senior.
The Indiana native leaves Purdue ninth on the school’s all-time scoring list, as well as fourth on the all-time rebounding list.
As for his former team, they are currently in Italy for an overseas trip. The team recently visited the Vatican and is preparing for the 2012-13 season after finishing 22-13 this past year.
The Boilermakers welcome four Indiana natives to the team in 2012-13, led by Oak Hill (Va.) center A.J. Hammons.
