News: 2 days agoWood was claimed off waivers by the Pelicans on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Spin: Wood was let go by the Bucks on Monday to make room for Tim Frazier, and now Wood will get a shot with New Orleans. He's played just 62 total NBA minutes this season -- racking up 37 points, 20 rebounds and two assists -- but he's been a force in the G League. Across 28 appearances with the Wisconsin Herd this season, Wood has averaged 29.3 points, 14.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and a combined 3.2 blocks/steals. His role will probably remain relatively small with the Pelicans, but New Orleans has plenty of reason to give him a fair shot considering where they are in the standings.
