But the surprising move to waive Mekel freed up a roster spot and may have been a financial decision. And it might not mean Mekel is gone for good, Williams said. "We just felt like it was a move that we wanted to take a look at him," Williams said. "We thought he did a good job, (but) there are some particulars financially that I am not going to discuss, that's for Dell and his staff (to discuss). They do a good job of keeping the organization in a good place. We like (Mekel) a lot. That doesn't mean we won't bring him back. But at this point we felt like we were going to go in a different direction." New Orleans Times-Picayune

Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham said he spoke to NBA officials and said the league is investigating two separate second-quarter incidents involving him in Sunday’s game against Golden State. Both Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green were struck in their face inadvertently by Cunningham on two separate plays. Barnes suffered a nasal fracture, a chipped tooth and had a mouth laceration that required stitches. He did not return after he left the game holding a towel to his mouth with 10:29 remaining in the second quarter. Green suffered a bloody nose after catching Cunningham’s elbow just before halftime. However, he returned to play in the second half to help spark the Warriors to a 128-122 overtime victory that extended their winning streak to 16 consecutive games. New Orleans Times-Picayune
