The love on Twitter started flowing in from Spain for Robbie Hummel on Wednesday afternoon.

That's when it was announced by multiple media outlets overseas that the 6-foot-8 swingman out of Purdue will be taking his game to Spain with Obradoiro of the ACB League.

Hummel also confirmed the reports via his Twitter account.

"Thanks to everyone for the congrats! Cant wait to play for @OBRADOIROCAB...I'm lookin forward to getting over to Spain to get to work!"

The news comes two months after the Minnesota Timberwolves selected Hummel with the 58th overall pick in the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft.

After averaging 16.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per game as a senior at Purdue, he struggled to perform with the Wolves at the Las Vegas Summer League: 3.6 points and 3.8 rebounds, while shooting 42% from the field in roughly 15 minutes per game.

"The coaches want me as a big guy to spread the floor, rebound and defend; kinda be a glue guy," Hummel said about his time spent in summer league with Minnesota.

"You look at what Brian Cardinal has done for Dallas and try to emulate that."

At this point, it appears Hummel still plays a part in Minnesota's future as they "draft and stash" him in Spain and allow Hummel to develop.
