Adrien signed a contract with Bnei Herzliya of Israel, David Pick of BasketballInsiders.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old small forward has five years of NBA experience, with his most recent stop coming with the Timberwolves during the 2014-15 season when he averaged 3.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 0.9 assists over 17 games. Adrien didn't appear to generate much interest during free agency this offseason and will instead, head overseas to Israel, where he likely received a more lucrative contract offer. A potential return to the NBA hasn't been ruled out following his international campaign.

Adrien was waived by New Orleans Saturday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old forward from the University of Connecticut was unable to show enough this preseason to earn a roster spot on Opening night. He played 17 games for the Timberwolves last year, averaging 3.5 points, 4.5 boards, and 0.5 blocks in 12.6 minutes per game. He'll likely star the season in the D-League.

Adrien tallied 11 points (3-3 FG, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block in a 100-120 loss to the Rockets on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

This was a revenge game of sorts for Adrien, as he played for the Rockets two years ago. The power forward has had a hard time finding a role in the NBA and he'll likely have the same problem here. He's currently behind Dante Cunningham, Ryan Anderson, and Anthony Davis on the depth chart and he surely wont move ahead of any of those guys.

Adrien signed with the Pelicans on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Adrien will have to impress during training camp to be awarded a spot on the final 15-man roster when the regular season rolls around. He appeared in 17 games for the Timberwolves last season and will have to beat out the likes of Chris Douglas-Roberts, Luke Babbitt, and Alonzo Gee for a limited spot in the rotation, if he even makes the team.

Adrien was waived by the Timberwolves on Wednesday, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Adrient, who signed with Minnesota at the end of November, appeared in 17 games, averaging 3.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in 12.6 minutes. Had he remained on the roster past Saturday, his contract would have become guaranteed for the remainder of the season. While Adrien figures to draw decent interest as a free agent, the Wolves could still attempt to bring him back on a 10-day contract.

Adrien was added to the Wolves' roster on a one-year, non-guaranteed deal, Alan Horton of Wolves' Radio reports.

Adrien's most recent 10-day contract expired Friday, but with a roster spot open, the team has decided to keep him around on a more permanent basis. The undersized forward has played well in limited minutes and flashed the ability to rebound at an elite level. That said, his role is too inconsistent to warrant rostering in most formats.

Adrien scored three points with seven rebounds in 15 minutes in Friday's loss to Boston. His 10-day contract expired Friday and Minnesota hasn't said yet if he'll stay with the team, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It seems likely the T-Wolves will sign him to another 10-day contract or for the rest of the season since Nikola Pekovic's return from an injury is uncertain.

Adrien played just five minutes and scored four points with two rebounds in Friday's loss to Oklahoma City.

Adrien played 26 minutes the previous game, but played fewer minutes than Anthony Bennett in Friday's game. Adrien's playing time will likely be inconsistent, but he there will be games where he'll be used at center as long as Ronny Turiaf and Nikola Pekovic remain out with injuries.

Adrien was signed to a second 10-day contract, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Adrien scored eight points with 11 rebounds in 26 minutes in Wednesday's win over Portland.

Adrien is getting time off the bench as the team's backup center with Nikola Pekovic out and it looks like he could have an extended stay on the Minnesota roster. His performance Wednesday could earn him more minutes off the bench.

Adrien scored two points with three rebounds in 16 minutes in Friday's overtime loss to Houston.

Adrien was signed with a hardship exception for a 16th roster spot due to Minnesota having four players out with injury, but it looks like he'll get time off the bench over Robbie Hummel. He could make a case to stay on the roster, especially if Nikola Pekovic's injury becomes a long-term issue.
