Pelicans waive Jimmer Fredette

The Pelicans are still injury-riddled, but after signing Jimmer Fredette with a hardship exemption, this might mean someone is returning.

Pelicans release:

The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that the team has waived guard Jimmer Fredette.

It’s also possible New Orleans just wants to try a different player with its 16th roster spot, though the possibilities are not mutually exclusive. One returning player would probably still allow the Pelicans to claim a hardship.

Fredette played just 13 minutes in four games and didn’t do much of note. If he returns to the D-League, the Westchester Knicks still hold his rights.
