Hamilton was traded to New Orleans on Feb. 19 but did not appear in a game for the Pelicans. He was waived Tuesday.  With starting center Nikola Pekovic struggling with a sore right ankle, the Wolves needed some depth in the front court.

Robinson was a second-round draft pick this season. But he played only sparingly while being caught in a log jam on the wing behind Andrew Wiggins, Kevin Martin, Shabazz Muhammad, Gary Neal and Chase Budinger.
