NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans Pelicans signed guard Bryce Dejean-Jones for the rest of the 2016 season.
Dejean-Jones previously played on two 10-day contracts with the Pels. After the two 10-day contracts are exhausted, the Pels had to sign Dejean-Jones for the rest of the season, or release him.
Dejean-Jones has appeared in 11 games (eight starts) for the Pelicans, averaging 6.3 points and 3.5 rebounds in 19.9 minutes per game.
In a related move, the Pelicans waived forward Jarnell Stokes. Stokes was acquired from the Miami Heat, along with cash considerations, yesterday in exchange for a future second round draft pick.
