Top Wes Iwundu News

  • Wes Iwundu: Waived by Charlotte

    Iwundu was waived by the Hornets on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Iwundu arrived in Charlotte as part of the Devonte' Graham sign-and-trade earlier in the offseason, but he's failed to make the final roster as the regular season approaches. The 2017 second-round pick appeared in 41 games between Dallas and New Orleans last season.

  • Hornets' Wes Iwundu: Dealt to Hornets

    The Hornets have acquired the Iwundu from the Pelicans as part of the three-team deal with Memphis that sent Devonte' Graham to New Orleans, Rod Boone of SI.com reports.

    Other assets gained by Charlotte in the deal include a protected first-round pick, cash considerations and the draft rights to Tyler Harvey. Iwundu will join an overhauled Hornets roster that will boast several serviceable rotational players. Thus, it is unclear if he is viewed as part of their plans for the upcoming season or if he could still end up elsewhere. The journeyman averaged 2.8 points and 2.6 rebounds across 13.9 minutes per game last season.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Out Sunday

    Iwundu (shoulder) will not play in Sunday's game against the Lakers, Andrew Lopez of ESPN reports.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Unavailable Friday

    Iwundu (shoulder) won't play in Friday's game against Golden State.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Listed as questionable

    Iwundu (shoulder) is questionable for Friday's game against Golden State, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Fails to score Monday

    Iwundu didn't score (0-2 FG) but added one rebound and one assist during Monday's loss to Golden State.

    This was Iwundu's first appearance over the past four contests, as the forward last played against the Clippers on April 26 logging two minutes off the bench. Iwundu has totaled just seven points and 10 rebounds across his past five outings.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Returns to bench Wednesday

    Iwundu will come off the bench Wednesday against the Knicks, Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.

    The 26-year-old started Monday against the Kings and tallied 11 points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds and one block in 27 minutes, but Naji Marshall will enter the starting five Wednesday. Iwundu should still be involved off the bench with Lonzo Ball (hip), Josh Hart (thumb) and Nickeil Alexander-Walker (ankle) still sidelined.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Sees big minutes

    Iwundu scored 11 points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT) to a long with seven rebounds and one block across 27 minutes in Monday's win over the Kings.

    The absence of Lonzo Ball (hip) forced the Pelicans to play bigger, with Iwundu entering the starting lineup as a result. As could be expected, he wasn't a big part of the offense, but rebounded well for his position and also chipped in one block. Once Ball is able to return, Iwundu figures to sink on the depth chart, but he could be a decent contributor in boards and defensive stats in the short term.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Starting Monday's game

    Iwundu will start Monday's game against the Kings, Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.

    Iwundu will make his first start with the Pelicans after he was traded to the team in March. Over the last five games, he's averaging 4.8 points on 36.4 percent shooting and 3.2 rebounds across 20.5 minutes per game.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Offers little in 23 minutes Wednesday

    Iwundu produced just three points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 139-111 loss to the Nets.

    Iwundu saw some additional playing time as the game descended into garbage time. His role on a typical night is yet to be determined, largely due to the fact the team is without a number of primary options right now. Despite having some defensive upside, Iwundu is yet to establish any sort of fantasy value.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Available Saturday

    Iwundu (recently traded) is available for Saturday's game against the Mavericks, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    After being dealt from the Mavericks on Thursday, Iwundu will have a chance to debut for his new team against his old team. That said, it's not clear if he'll be a regular part of coach Stan Van Gundy's rotation.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Bound for NOLA

    The Pelicans acquired Iwundu, James Johnson and a future second-round pick from the Mavericks on Thursday in exchange for JJ Redick and James Johnson, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Iwundu had been a fringe rotation option for the Mavericks this season, averaging 2.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 12.5 minutes per game over his 23 appearances. His playing-time outlook likely won't dramatically change for the better in New Orleans, and even if it does, Iwundu lacks a fantasy-friendly profile.
