The Pelicans will sign guard Walter Lemon Jr. to a 10-day contract on Tuesday.
The Pelicans run a lot of three guard lineups and only have one backup point guard after trading away Jameer Nelson, so Lemon Jr. could see a few minutes off the bench. The 25-year-old spent four years at Bradley University, but went undrafted in the NBA and has been mainly playing overseas since 2014. His recent G-League averages are 22.7 points, 5.9 assists, 4.6 boards and 2.1 steals on 49 percent from the field.
