Like Babbitt and he can take back about 5.2 million. -MM

Jason Calmes

For those of you interested in speculating, Dell could take back about 3.8 mil in salary by trading Rivers. Add a min salary guy like that

Jason Calmes

If you have followed Austin Rivers for a while, you know that tweets/post like that are very common with him. And he hasn't been traded yet.

Jason Calmes

Google "Identifying the Next Anthony Morrow". You will find an article listing Jones as a possibility from about two months ago. -MM

Jason Calmes

Looks like Dell is still throwing min. offers at veteran shooters. Got Anthony Morrow after everything settled down last year. -MM

Jrue Holiday

Wanna welcome Omer Asik to the #pelicanSquad. Excited to have him apart of the team.

Ryan Anderson

Excited to add @Omer Asik to the team! He is gonna make a great addition

John Reid

Jason Smith is signing with the Knicks

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans 7-foot center Omer Asik brings needed defensive presence, skill to his new team. Story: on.nba.com/1oXwTcO

Jason Calmes

Holiday's incentives not kicking in or renouncing Darius Miller. Either way, this likely means the Salmons signing is into the Room MLE.

Jason Calmes

If this is the case, then that means he deal was signed using cap space. This is space seems to have come from one of two places.

Jason Calmes

Russ Smith's reported deal is 2 years at the minimum and guaranteed, with a team option for the third year, fully guaranteed if picked up

John Reid

Omer Asik acknowledged it's too early to start focusing on the uncertainty regarding a possible contract extension in 2015 with the Pelicans
