Matteo Spagnolo returns to wear the Minnesota Timberwolves tank top at the Summer League in Las Vegas for the second consecutive summer. Picked in the 2022 draft with call number 50, the blue point guard has already played 5 games in the Nevada event last season, holding 3.2 points and 1.8 assists in 15.5 minutes. But now he will probably be expected to play a more important role, which will allow the T-Wolves to evaluate the improvements experienced during the year spent with Dolomiti Energia Trentino. Spagnolo recorded 12.4 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 28 LBA games Serie A between the regular season and the playoffs, receiving the Best Under 22 award. While in his first international experience in the Eurocup he averaged 11.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists with a career-high 23 points on March 8 in the trip to Gran Canaria.
In Las Vegas, Minnesota will play 4 games trying to qualify for the playoffs (the first 4 pass). If not, he will play one last consolation match against another team eliminated from the Final Four. This is the calendar:
