Charlotte Hornets finalize their roster to open the NBA season. Here’s who made it

·1 min read

Wes Iwundu was always a longshot to latch on with the Charlotte Hornets. On Monday, he found out he didn’t beat the odds.

The Hornets waived Iwundu, a move they had to make to trim their roster down the maximum of 17 players by the league’s 5 p.m. deadline. The Hornets’ roster is now set as they head into their season opener against Indiana on Wednesday.

Acquired in the sign-and-trade with New Orleans sending Devonte’ Graham to the Pelicans for a protected 2022 first-round pick and cash considerations, Iwundu appeared in all four of the Hornets’ preseason games and averaged 0.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in 11 minutes. The fourth-year wing player was buried behind others on the depth chart, leaving little chance for him to make the team.

Arnoldas Kulboka and Scottie Lewis are on two-way contracts with the Hornets
