NEW ORLEANS – Just three days after his release, it appears the New Orleans Pelicans have re-signed rookie Dereon Seabron to a two-way contract.
The team issued a press release this afternoon confirming his return. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Hoops Hype and USA Today reporter Michael Scotto first posted that information on Twitter early Sunday morning.
Seabron, a 6-7 guard/forward out of NC State, appeared in five games this season for the Pelicans with averages of 0.8 points and 0.2 rebounds.
He last played on Feb. 15 in a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Seabron showed promise with the Pelicans’ G-League affiliate, the Birmingham Squadron. In 28 games he was second on the team in scoring, averaging 17.4 points per game and led the Squadron with 5.1 assists per game.
