The 6-foot-2 point guard averaged 3.6 points, 1.2 assists and 0.8 rebounds in 50 games with the Pelicans. He was drafted 10th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft, out of Brigham Young University, by the Milwaukee Bucks before being traded to the Sacramento Kings, where he spent his first two seasons, and majority of a third, before joining the Chicago Bulls.
