Pelicans Waive Anthony Brown

The Pelicans have waived Anthony Brown, tweets Justin Verrier of ESPN.

The second-year swingman played nine games for New Orleans, putting up averages of 3.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per night. He was signed November 21st in an effort to improve the Pelicans’ depth in the backcourt.

The 24-year-old out of Stanford was selected by the Lakers with the 34th pick of the 2015 draft. He spent his rookie season in L.A., averaging 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 29 games, but was waived before the season started.

The move leaves New Orleans with just 14 players, so another roster move may be coming soon.
