Pelicans Waive Terrence Jones

4:57pm: The Pelicans have officially waived Jones, the team announced today (via Twitter). The big man will be an interesting player to watch on waivers — since he signed a one-year, minimum salary contract last summer, any team could claim him using the minimum salary exception, so it’s possible he won’t reach the open market.

2:21pm: The Pelicans are expected to waive Terrence Jones, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports. New Orleans had previously shopped Jones on the trade market, but- seemingly unable to find a trade partner- will waive the 25-year-old so he can pursue an opportunity elsewhere (Twitter links)

Jones is sure to generate interest on the buyout market. New Orleans received excellent value from Jones, who signed a one-year, $1.05MM contract over the offseason. The former Kentucky Wildcat averaged 11.5 points over 51 games, shooting 47.2% from the field.

The Pelicans now have a vacant roster spot, which they may use on a guard. Earlier today, Marc Stein of ESPN relayed the team’s intent on auditioning Jarrett Jack (Twitter link). Additionally, the Pelicans recently staged work-out sessions for Wayne Selden, Mario Chalmers, Hollis Thompson, Quinn Cook, and Reggie Williams.

  1. Wow… thought they’d be able to get a tony Allen or a Courtney lee for him but I guess I haven’t seen him play that much but when I have he seems solid to me

    • Cap might’ve been an issue. Jones makes the minimum. Both of those guys make much more than he does.

    Milwaukee has a need for Mr. T. Jones. Since PF J. Parker went down, Young PF Jones would be an excellent addition. They do have a roster spot, having traded R. Hibbert to Denver.

  4. He should sign with a team like Nets or 76ers to improve his chances at a better contract for the offseason.
