The Pelicans signed guard Elliot Williams to a second 10-day contract, the team announced on Saturday. Williams has appeared in three games with the Pelicans, averaging 4.0 points and 1.0 assists in 11.0 minutes per game.
Williams continues to give New Orleans depth at shooting guard as the Pelicans deal with two backcourt injuries. Jrue Holiday has not played since January 12 because of a right leg injury. Tyreke Evans has been bothered by an ankle issue and did not play against the Nets on Tuesday.
Prior to joining the Pelicans, Williams had 10-day contracts with the Hornets and Jazz. He was playing for the D-League’s Santa Cruz Warriors just before New Orleans signed him. The former 22nd overall pick had his 10-day contract with the Hornets terminated early so they could pull off the Mo Williams trade last month.
Elliot Williams didn’t see action on his lone pact with Charlotte, but he averaged 3.6 points in 8.4 minutes per contest in five appearances for the Jazz, who signed him to two 10-day deals.
