Restricted free agent guard Norris Cole is the top remaining free agent the New Orleans Pelicans are making a push to re-sign, sources said Saturday afternoon. The Pelicans can match any offer Cole receives, but the Pelicans have committed a portion of their $5.5 million mid-level exception after small forward forward Dante Cunningham agreed to a three-year, $9 million deal on Saturday afternoon. The Pelicans also have their full $2.1 million bi-annual exception still available.

I didn’t see him, but the sharp eyes of ESPN’s Dave McMenamin spotted free agent to be point guard Norris Cole in attendance tonight. Cole, of course, is a former Cleveland State product and a fellow Klutch client. The Cavs tried acquiring Cole at February’s trade deadline. Who could imagine then what a pivotal role Delly would be playing in this postseason?
“He’s a sticker. He can shoot,” said point guard Norris Cole, who made his Pelicans debut in that game, facing his ex-team. “Everyone in the league knows the scouting report: Close out on him. And even if you close out on him, he can still make it. He’s a prolific shooter. Obviously he works on it a lot.” That too has been critical to Gordon’s improvement. Though he suffered more bad luck Nov. 22 when a right shoulder injury at Utah caused him to miss 21 games, his lower body has been fine all season, providing the basis for a career shooting year. “What helps is he’s getting the reps up, because he’s healthy now,” Vinson said. “He’s more apt to be in the gym getting up extra shots, as opposed to being in the training room, trying to protect his body and prepare himself to be able to play. Now that he’s healthy, he can get out on the court early before shootaround, or get extra shots in after practice. He’s able to say, ‘OK, I feel good, I can get those extra shots up.’ His health has been huge.”
