With Jrue Holiday out at least another three weeks, the Pelicans picked up a point guard right before the NBA trade deadline Thursday afternoon, acquiring Norris Cole from Miami, as part of a three-team deal that sends forward John Salmons to Phoenix.

In 47 games this season, Cole has averaged 6.3 points and 3.5 assists. Salmons really was a non-factor with the Pelicans, averaging just 2.0 points per game.

New Orleans also acquires forward Shawne Williams, but the Pelicans will buy out his contract.
