New Orleans, La. - The Philadelphia 76ers have selected Baylor guard Pierre Jackson with the 42nd overall pick in the NBA draft and he will soon be a New Orleans Pelican.
Jackson will be part of the trade that sends sixth-overall pick Nerlens Noel to the Sixers. FOX 8 Sports has confirmed that the Pelicans acquired All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday in Thursday's trade with the Sixers.
New Orleans also sent the 76ers a protected 2014 first-round pick and received the Sixers' second-round selection - 42nd overall - in this year's draft. New Orleans would retain its 2014 first-round selection only if it falls in the top five.
