NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Pelicans completed their second big move in two days, acquiring Jrue Holiday from Philadelphia and trading the rights to rookie Nerlens Noel.
The deal was agreed to on draft night, when the Pelicans drafted Noel with the No. 6 overall pick. They sent his rights to the 76ers along with a 2014 first-round pick for Holiday, who made his first All-Star team last season.
Pelicans general manager Dell Demps says Friday in a statement that Holiday ``is the ideal fit for our team'' and ``will be an integral addition to the Pelicans family for many years to come.''
Holiday will join Tyreke Evans, who was acquired from Sacramento on Thursday, among New Orleans' newcomers. The Pelicans also received the rights to No. 42 pick Pierre Jackson from Philadelphia.
Noel was considered the potential No. 1 pick despite tearing his ACL during his lone season at Kentucky.
