Report: Timberwolves claim Justin Hamilton on waivers, waive Glenn Robinson, III

9 Comments

Justin Hamilton was one of the many pieces included in last month’s trade between the Miami Heat and Phoenix Suns that sent Goran Dragic to Miami. Hamilton, a former D-League big man, ended up going to New Orleans, and the Pelicans promptly waived him. Now, ESPN.com’s Marc Stein is reporting that Hamilton has a new home in Minnesota.

In 25 games for the Timberwolves, Robinson had averaged just 1.2 points in 4.3 minutes per game. Hamilton hasn’t contributed much more than that in Miami, but the Timberwolves are essentially swapping out one end-of-bench player for another.
