— Former Arkansas center Moses Kingsley will play for the Minnesota Timberwolves' summer league team in Las Vegas.

Kingsley is one of 13 players on Minnesota's summer league roster. The Timberwolves begin play Saturday and are guaranteed five games in the Vegas portion of summer league action, which runs through July 17.

The 6-foot-10, 230-pound All-SEC performer averaged 12 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game for the Razorbacks as a senior and finished his career third in school history in blocks.

Former Creighton center Justin Patton, Minnesota's first-round draft pick taken No. 16 overall, broke his foot and will miss summer league, which could mean a bigger opportunity and more playing time for Kingsley.

Here are the details for the Timberwolves' first three games:

Saturday, July 8 — Toronto, 5:30 p.m., NBA TV

Sunday, July 9 — Denver, 5:30 p.m., ESPN 2

Tuesday, July 11 — Golden State, 7:30 p.m., ESPN 2
