Hagans will split time between the franchise’s big league club in Minneapolis and their G League affiliate in Iowa. He’ll have 50 games’ worth of service time in the NBA.
Hagans spent two years with Kentucky and averaged 11.5 points and 6.4 assists per game in his sophomore season. He’ll arrive in Minnesota with a reputation for defense as well. Hagans was the SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2018-19.
