On Tuesday, the Pelicans signed PF/C Donatas Motiejunas to a 1 year contract worth $1.1 million. Because he is being signed in the middle of the season, he will be paid the veteran minimum of 600k. Over his career, Motiejunas has averaged 7.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.1 assists. The Pelicans hope this new acquisition will help breathe life into what has been a disappointing season so far. Fans will get their first chance to see Motiejunas in action tonight against the Atlanta Hawks in the Smoothie King Center at 7pm.
