NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Pelicans announced Monday that the team has re-signed free agent forward Luke Babbitt. It's a two year deal worth $2.5 million, ESPN reports.

As a reserve last year, Babbitt shot the ball well from beyond the arc. Babbitt appeared in 63 games (19 starts) for New Orleans, averaging 4.1 points, while shooting .513 from three-point range, and 1.8 rebounds in 13.2 minutes per contest.

He originally signed with the Pelicans as an unrestricted free agent on February 4, 2014. In 90 career games with the Pelicans, Babbitt has averaged 4.7 points while shooting .452 from three-point range, and 2.2 rebounds.

The Pelicans have now extended Anthony Davis and re-signed Babbitt, Omer Asik, Alexis Ajinca and Dante Cunningham.
