Curtis Jerrells Rumors

The New Orleans Hornets have acquired guard Curtis Jerrells from the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for a second-round draft choice. Jerrells is a former Baylor star who went undrafted in 2009 and spent much of last season with the Austin Toros of the NBA Development League. At Baylor, Jerrells became the only player in school history to have more than 1,000 points, 400 assists and 400 steals.
Trading reserve point guard Curtis Jerrells to the Hornets for a future second-round draft pick, the Spurs have trimmed their roster to 16 players. Jerrells, who started all 50 games last season for the Spurs’ Austin Toros D-League team, for which he averaged 20.7 points and 5.7 assists, had played in all five of the Spurs’ preseason games, averaging 6.4 points and 2.2 assists. The former Baylor Bears star will be reunited with Dell Demps, the former Spurs assistant general manager who now serves as GM of the Hornets. Demps also had served as GM of the Toros.
