Former Skyforce Center Journey Stretches from Miami through New Orleans to Minnesota
Justin Hamilton is still in demand as a viable NBA big man. The former Skyforce center is now heading north to Minnesota.
The Timberwolves are in need of depth in the pivot after Nikola Pekovic recently suffered a sprained ankle. Overall Pekovic has only played 27 games for the Wolves this season.
Hamilton’s NBA course now puts him with his third team in the last three weeks. The 7-footer by way of LSU was traded February 19 from Miami to New Orleans, which also involved the Dragic brothers going to Phoenix.
The 2014 NBADL First-Teamer never did hit the court for the Pelicans. Hamilton was waived on Tuesday and picked up Thursday for a team that has recently added the T-Wolves all-timer Kevin Garnett.
