Signing Robinson gives the Timberwolves 16 contracts on the roster, which is one more than the league allows. The Timberwolves have been trying to trade Barea for most of the summer, but have yet to find any takers.

A 10-story tall LeBron James could tower over downtown again. Sherwin-Williams Co. has asked the city for approval to hang a new banner of James on its headquarters across the street from Quicken Loans Arena, the Plain Dealer reported Tuesday. The banner is similar to the iconic one that was in place for years before being taken down after James signed with the Miami Heat in 2010. The city's planning commission released an image of the banner, which has a likeness of James, his arms outstretched and wearing a jersey that says ''Cleveland'' on the back, beneath a cloud of chalk dust, which he tossed into the air as part of his pregame ritual when he previously played for the Cavs.
