New Orleans Pelicans “seriously considering” signing Dante Cunningham

If you remember forward Dante Cunningham out of Villanova, you may or may not remember that the 26-year-old faced some nasty domestic violence charges this year. Cunningham was with the Minnesota Timberwolves to end last season, but teams were reluctant to go his way in the offseason because of his charges.

But in mid-August, Cunningham’s charges were dismissed when the police found the accusations to be false. Now, according to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the New Orleans Pelicans might be the ones looking to sign Cunningham:

The Pelicans are 7-8 to start the season, and the wins that they do have can be largely attributed to the ascension of Anthony Davis. Pursuing Cunningham is about adding some depth and defense to the front line. He averaged 6 points and 4 rebounds in 20 minutes per game for Minnesota last season, respectively. He’s been a capable reserve player on both ends of the floor and now it seems he’ll have a chance to produce for Monty Williams or somebody else.
