Pelicans' Tony Carr: Joining Pels for camp
Carr agreed Tuesday with the Pelicans on a nonguaranteed contract, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
A second-round pick of New Orleans in 2018, Carr is presumably attending training camp with the Pelicans on an Exhibit 10 deal. The 6-foot-5 guard spent the 2019-20 season with the G League's Erie BayHawks, averaging 10.0 points, 3.8 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 24.6 minutes per game over 13 appearances.... See More ...

Pelicans' Rawle Alkins: Spending camp in New Orleans
Alkins signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Pelicans on Tuesday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Alkins spent time with Houston during summer league last year and will now get a chance with New Orleans. The 23-year-old hasn't seen NBA action since the 2018-19 campaign, when he averaged 3.7 points in 10 games with the Bulls.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Ike Anigbogu: Signs with Pels
Anigbogu signed with the Pelicans on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
A second-round pick of the Pacers in 2017, Anigbogu never found a role in Indiana, but the UCLA product will try his luck in New Orleans. The Pelicans don't have a role readily available, so it's likely Anigbogu could spend much of the year in the G League.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Will Magnay: Inks two-way deal with Pelicans
Magnay has signed a two-way contract with the Pelicans, Olgun Uluc of ESPN reports.
The Australian center averaged 8.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.2 assists in 21.5 minutes per game for Brisbane last season, winning the league's Most Improved Player award and leading the NBL in blocked shots. In signing a two-way deal, the 22-year-old will spend much of the upcoming season in the G League but could see some NBA action as well.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Elijah Hughes: Traded to Jazz, signs contract
Hughes was traded from the Pelicans to the Jazz in exchange for cash and a future second-round pick. On Tuesday, he signed a contract with the Jazz, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
The forward's offensive repertoire seems to be NBA ready, as Hughes led the ACC in scoring last season with Syracuse. He averaged 19.0 points in addition to a steady 4.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. That said, he's unlikely to see a significant role as a rookie in a relatively crowded wing rotation for Utah.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Receives five-year extension
Ingram and the Pelicans agreed Tuesday on a five-year, $158 million contract extension, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Ingram was a restricted free agent this offseason, but the Pelicans had every intention of matching any offer sheet that may have been presented to the 23-year-old. After passing on an extension offer from the Pelicans shortly after being traded from the Lakers last July, Ingram was able to cash in on a more lucrative long-term deal this offseason following his breakthrough All-Star season in 2019-20. Ingram posted career-high averages in points (23.8 per game), rebounds (6.1), assists (4.2), three-pointers (2.4) and steals (1.0), while hitting 85.1 percent of his free-throw attempts, a 17-point rise from 2018-19....

Pelicans' Steven Adams: Inks two-year extension
Adams signed a two-year, $35 million contract extension with the Pelicans on Monday, Zach Lowe of ESPN.com reports.
Adams was dealt from the Thunder to the Pelicans on Saturday, and the team has elected to lock him up for the next two years by offering him $35 million guaranteed. He's expected to slot in as the starting center in New Orleans and will get a chance to team up with the 2019 first-round selection, Zion Williamson, at power forward.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Wenyen Gabriel: Signs with Pelicans
Gabriel signed a one-year contract with a team option for a second season with the Pelicans on Monday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Gabriel will make $1.6 million this season and will earn $1.8 million if kept around for a second year. The forward appeared in 30 games for the Kings and Trail Blazers last season, scoring 2.1 points and bringing down 1.7 rebounds in 7.8 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Sindarius Thornwell: Back with Pelicans
Thornwell signed a one-year, minimum contract with the Pelicans on Monday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
The 26-year-old joined the Pelicans as a substitute player for the NBA bubble in Orlando, and he'll rejoin the team after appearing in two games down the stretch. Thornwell otherwise last saw NBA action with the Clippers in 2018 and averaged 4.9 minutes across 64 games.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Willy Hernangomez: Continuing career in New Orleans
Hernangomez agreed to a contract Sunday with the Pelicans on a one-year deal for the league minimum, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Hernangomez boasts career averages of 17.3 points and 13.5 rebounds per 36 minutes, but his shortcomings on the defensive end have prevented him from receiving anywhere close to that level of playing time through his first four years in the NBA. Assuming he's able to make the Pelicans' opening-night roster, Hernangomez will likely slot in as the third-string center behind Steven Adams and Jaxson Hayes.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Receives two-way deal from Pelicans
Marshall agreed Thursday to a deal with the Pelicans on a two-way contract, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
The Pelicans moved quickly to bring Marshall in the fold as one of its two two-way players after he went undrafted Wednesday. A 6-foot-7 forward from Xavier, Marshall averaged 16.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.0 rebounds, 1.4 three-pointers and 1.3 steals in 35.6 minutes per game as a junior in 2019-20. As a two-way player, he'll be eligible to play in up to 50 games for the Pelicans during his rookie season.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Eric Bledsoe: Sticking in NOLA
Bledsoe will remain with the Pelicans, despite Milwaukee and New Orleans having since expanded the trade they agreed upon Monday to include two other teams, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Since acquiring Bledsoe earlier in the week, the Pelicans have continued to make other moves, with Steven Adams also coming over from the Thunder as part of the trade. Meanwhile, George Hill, who was also acquired from Milwaukee, was sent to the Thunder. For now, it appears Bledsoe could slot in as the Pelicans' starting shooting guard, or he'll compete with Lonzo Ball, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and rookie Kira Lewis for minutes at point guard....

Pelicans' Steven Adams: Dealt to New Orleans
The Thunder are finalizing a deal to send Adams to the Pelicans, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The specifics of this trade have not yet been reported, but it has been confirmed that Adams will be a Pelican. The move is unsurprising, as the Thunder continue their rebuild by trading veterans for young players and draft capital. The move happened hours after New Orleans let Derrick Favors walk in free agency, which opened up the starting center position. It remains to be seen how Adams will mesh alongside star big man Zion Williamson in the frontcourt, as spacing could be an issue. The 27-year-old Adams averaged 10.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.1 blocks across 26.7 minutes in Oklahoma City last season.... See More ... See Less
