Free-agent forward Chris Douglas-Roberts has agreed to a two-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Douglas-Roberts has started workouts with the Pelicans and will sign for the NBA's veteran minimum. Douglas-Roberts gives New Orleans some experience at the wing and will compete for a roster spot along with Bryce Dejean-Jones and Sean Kilpatrick.
Douglas-Roberts, 28, has averaged 7.1 points and 2.1 rebounds over six NBA seasons while playing for the Nets, Bucks, Mavericks, Hornets and Clippers. The 6-foot-7 forward signed with the Clippers last offseason after being a contributor on Charlotte's playoff team under Steve Clifford.
Douglas-Roberts' training to return to the NBA featured a summer scrimmage game in which he scored 50 points.
The Nets selected Douglas-Roberts out of Memphis with the No. 40 overall pick in the 2008 draft.
