News: Salmons has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Pelicans, Comcast SportsNet Northwest reports. Impact: Salmons split last season between the Kings and Raptors before being dealt to the Hawks on June 29. At this point in his career, the 34-year-old is a full-time bench player with a limited skills set, but he's still a dependable three-point shooter. He shot just 36.8 percent from the floor in 60 games for the Raptors but converted 38.8 percent of his threes. Salmons fills the void left by the departure of Anthony Morrow and will compete with Austin Rivers for time at shooting guard off the bench.(RotoWire, )

News: The Atlanta Hawks have requested waivers on Salmons. The move announced Friday was expected after the Hawks acquired Salmons from Toronto last week. Atlanta dealt away guard Lou Williams and the rights to Brazilian center Lucas Nogueira in a move to clear space under the salary cap. Impact: By paying the $1 million buyout of Salmons' $7 million salary, the Hawks will have about $11.5 million for additional signings. They opened free agency by formally announcing a deal for Oklahoma swingman Thabo Sefolosha. The 34-year-old Salmons averaged 5.2 points in 78 games for the Raptors last season. (STATS, 1:43pm)
