Rotowire: Feb 19 / 3:28p ET
News: Salmons will be waived by the Suns following Thursday's trade from New Orleans, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Salmons managed just 21 appearances in the Pelicans' 53 games this season, averaging two points (on 33 percent shooting) and one rebound in 13 minutes. Personal concerns were cited as his lack of presence at times in New Orleans, but in any case, he'll likely find it difficult to land another NBA gig in his 13th season.

News: Salmons was traded to the Suns on Thursday, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Salmons was reportedly dealt to Miami at one point, but when the dust settled he ended up in Phoenix, where he'll likely step into a similar role to the one he saw in New Orleans. Salmons appeared in less than half of the Pelicans' games this season, averaging only 2.0 points in 12.9 minutes.
Rotowire: Jan 27 / 7:01a ET
News: Salmons returned to the court Monday night after playing just once in the month of January.
Impact: Salmons is simply behind the rest of the Pelicans on the depth chart. He provides a veteran presence, but Salmons won't be in line for big minutes any time soon. He's averaging just 2.1 points per game on 34.0 percent shooting this season.
