NEW LOOK NEW ORLEANS
Now that the New Orleans Hornets are the New Orleans Pelicans, it was only a matter of time before the new look jerseys made their debut. Thursday afternoon was that moment.
Point guard Jrue Holiday and forwards Jason Smith, Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson were featured as models as the Pelicans new feathers (I’m sorry) were released.

AL HARRINGTON FREE
Orlando Magic beat writer for the Orlando Sentinal Josh Robbins is reporting that the Magic have officially waived forward Al Harrington.
Harrington then went on Twitter and Instagram to confirm it, if anything was left to doubt.
It's Official… Orlando has waived me! I just want thanks all the Orlando Fans that embraced me in my… http://t.co/tIawnUNrde

Harrington, who has already played with six teams in his 17-year NBA career, averaged 5.1 points and 2.7 rebounds last season in only 10 games. The 33-year-old forward was hampered by a staph infection in his knee that limited him last year.
Harrington averaged 14.2 points as a reserve for the Denver Nuggets during his last full season in 2011-12.
Harrington is a career 35 percent three-point shooter and has averaged at least 10 points in every season of his career when he’s played at least 60 games.
