Gee had two points, four rebounds, and an assist over 20 minutes in the Pelicans' loss to Houston on Monday. Gee saw more minutes than usual since both Tyreke Evans (knee) and Luke Babbitt (hamstring) did not play, but still put up a decent showing on the court. The 29-year-old is fighting Chris Douglas-Roberts for reserve minutes on the Pelicans' roster, so he'll have to produce more in order to see significant playing time during the regular season.
Veteran forward Alonzo Gee has signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans for $2.75 million, league sources have told Yahoo Sports. Gee received less playing time last season for Denver and Portland than he had in any previous season since his rookie year. He averaged 4.5 points and 1.7 rebounds in just 12 minutes per game.
The Trail Blazers have listed guard Arron Afflalo as doubtful for Sunday's opening round game against the Grizzlies with a shoulder injury, the team announced. Afflalo missed the final three games of the regular season with the injury. If he is unable to go, CJ McCollum would likely fill in. Also listed on the injury report are Alonzo Gee (foot) as questionable, McCollum (ankle), Nicolas Batum (knee) and Chris Kaman (back) as probable. The Trail Blazers are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs against Memphis
Foward Alonzo Gee will miss the Trail Blazers' contest Friday against the Pistons after undergoing oral surgery, the team announced. In 46 games with the Nuggets and Blazers, Gee is averaging 4.6 points and 1.6 rebounds.
The Nuggets agreed to trade guard Arron Afflalo and forward Alonzo Gee to the Trail Blazers, league sources confirmed to CBSSports.com NBA Insider Ken Berger. In exchange for Afflalo and Gee, the Trail Blazers will send Will Barton, Victor Claver and a 2016 lottery-protected first-round pick to Denver. If the pick is not traded by 2017, it would turn into two second-round picks. The Nuggets will also receive Thomas Robinson.
