The Pelicans waived Omri Casspi (broken right thumb) to create a roster spot that was needed to sign Williams. In an extremely bad piece of luck, Casspi was injured while making his New Orleans debut Thursday and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks. “I think he understood,” Gentry said of Casspi’s reaction to the roster move. “We talked about it and it’s just an unfortunate situation. He was going to be a guy who could help us in the shooting aspect and he has good size. But these kinds of things happen. At this stage, it was just really important for us to have that roster spot. Hopefully he can recover quickly and we’ll see what happens.”

David Pick: Omri Casspi: “Firing George Karl was disappointing. He is one of greatest coaches in the NBA, he is a HOFer. We (players) didn’t do a good enough job of winning games to keep him as head coach. Not making the playoffs is upsetting because we’re a lot more talented than some of the teams in there, but we’ve been through situations this season that are hard for me to explain. The Kings want me back next season, I’m not sure who the coach will be, but I’m adaptable, I’m comfortable in most systems. I’m confident I’ll be back in Sacramento next season.”

Marc Berman: Tony Leng, Zhou Qi’s Chinese agent: “He comes here to train, and obviously we’re looking forward to sign with the Rockets and that’s what he came here for, to be able to play in the NBA and to achieve his childhood dreams, playing in the NBA. Until that contract is signed we cannot say that. He’s just come off a very successful CBA season, got a championship for his club in China. Just wants to get here and train and get better.”
