News: Douglas was waived by the Pelicans on Thursday, NBA.com reports.
Impact: After inking a 10-day contract with New Orleans on Feb. 4, Douglas played the last three games before the break, averaging nine points (on 41 percent shooting), four assists, 2.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and one three-pointer in 22 minutes. He previously played in the Chinese Basketball Association this season, which, along with the recent audition, could give another NBA team enough evidence to give him a chance.

News: Douglas will sign a second 10-day contract with the Pelicans after the All-Star break, Real GM's Shams Charania reports.
Impact: This will give Douglas an opportunity to try to earn a contract for the rest of the season if New Orleans likes what he brings to the backcourt mix. He has seen 25 minutes in each of his last two games, and on Wednesday, he scored 14 points with seven assists. With Jrue Holiday (leg) still out, Douglas could offer sneaky value in the short term.

News: Douglas signed a 10-day deal with the Pelicans on Wednesday.
Impact: Douglas signed with a Chinese team in August but will return to the NBA after playing 35 CBA games, posting averages of 19.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists. A first-round pick in 2009, Douglas has spent time with the Knicks, Rockets, Kings, Warriors and Heat in his NBA career. The Florida State product, who assumes the role vacated by Nate Wolters, will be available for Wednesday's game against Oklahoma City.
