Pelicans Sign Sindarius Thornwell To 10-Day Deal

After waiving guard Sindarius Thornwell on Monday, the Pelicans have brought him back on a 10-day contract, the team announced in a press release.

Thornwell was released for financial reasons before his contract would have become guaranteed for the rest of 2020/21. Instead of having his $1.62MM cap hit locked in for the season, he’ll make about $111K on his new 10-day deal with New Orleans.

The 26-year-old has appeared in 11 games this season, making one start, and was averaging 1.4 points in 4.8 minutes per night.

Thornwell signed a substitution contract with New Orleans prior to the NBA’s restart last summer and got into two games in Orlando. He re-signed with the team during the offseason.

    Pelicans should have just waived wenyen Gabriel never play him Sindarius Thornwell is an amazing defender while Gabriel only plays like 5 seconds then gets back on the bench

      true, tbh gabriel is practically useless wehn he actually gets meaningful mins u should see him when he was with da blazers, all he did was grab boards and mostly nothing else

        Thornwell is definitely a guy to keep your eye on. They should sign him to a vet minimum. But if they don’t resign him I’d like to see him go to OKC because I think he would make a big impact their with the rest of their youth
