Pelicans Add Shooting Depth, Sign EuroLeague Star Dairis Bertans
The NBA will welcome another Bertans.
Davis Bertans is a sharpshooting stretch-four for the San Antonio Spurs. His older brother, Dairis, a EuroLeague star will now join him in the NBA. As per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the New Orleans Pelicans have waived point guard Tim Frazier and will sign the 29-year old Latvian.
Suiting up for AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan, Bertans has shot 53.6% from beyond the arc this season in the EuroLeague and 48.7% from three in the LBA Serie A.
The deal grants the option for Bertans to opt out of his NBA contract and return to Europe.
