Hoyas to Have Qudus | HOYAREPORT
As widely known, Wahab’s collegiate career has been a topsy turvy; Starting at G’Town in 2019, Qudus averaged 8.7 points, 6.1 rebounds per game, with his numbers elevating in ‘20-21. He then transferred to rival Maryland, where 7.7 points and 5.6 rebounds were accounted for.
Well, Wahab followed that by executing a rarity, returning to the team he transferred from - Georgetown - in 2022. Being his second transfer, to play immediately a NCAA waiver was necessary, and recently received.
Georgetown now has two starters in place - Dante Harris & Qudus Wahab - from the team that won the 2021 Big East Tournament plus Brandon Murray (LSU) & Akok Akok (UConn).— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) August 23, 2022
If ASU transfer Jay Heath gets a waiver, Patrick Ewing has a roster that can be competitive in the Big East. https://t.co/OopnMbqcqa

Press Release from the Timberwolves
Timberwolves Name Jonathan Wallace Director of Player Personnel and Iowa Wolves General Manager
Minneapolis/St. Paul – The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the hire of Jonathan Wallace as Director of Player Personnel and Iowa Wolves General Manager. Wallace joins Minnesota’s earlier basketball operations hires of Dell Demps, Matt Lloyd and Steve Senior.
“I am happy to welcome Jon to the Timberwolves basketball operations staff,” said President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly. “I have spent many years with Jon and know his basketball acumen is going to benefit the Timberwolves organization as a whole, including the Iowa Wolves as General Manager. I look forward to our basketball operations staff working closely together toward the goals we have set for this franchise.”
Wallace joins the Timberwolves after spending three seasons with the Denver Nuggets, most recently as Scouting Coordinator. He was originally hired as a Basketball Operations Associate in 2019 by the Nuggets. Before his front office NBA experience, Wallace completed a professional playing career that took him from the then NBA Developmental League to Germany and Belgium. He played for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in 2008 where he won a championship.
Prior to his time in the NBA, Wallace was hired in 2016 as Special Assistant to the Head Coach/Head Manager at his alma mater, Georgetown. He spent three seasons on Patrick Ewing’s coaching staff for the Hoyas. As a player, Wallace, an All-BIG EAST guard, started every game of his career (136) for Georgetown and was part of four teams that went to the postseason, including three-straight NCAA Tournament appearances. He helped lead the Hoyas to back-to-back BIG EAST Regular Season titles (2006-07, 2007-08) and a BIG EAST Tournament Championship (2006-07).
