Can't we just do the same thing for Solo?The San Antonio Spurs have traded reserve point guard Curtis Jerrells to the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for a second-round pick, sources tell HOOPSWORLD.
Last season, Jerrells was called up from San Antonio's NBA Development League affiliate, the Austin Toros, but he didn't appear in any games for the Spurs. He has turned heads in San Antonio this season after playing well during training camp and preseason action. In five games, he has averaged 6.4 points and 2.2 assists in just over fifteen minutes per game.
The point guard will be reunited with Dell Demps in New Orleans. Demps was general manager of the Toros for three seasons and watched Jerrells develop into one of the NBDL's top players. Jerrells will likely be the second-string point guard behind Chris Paul with Mustafa Shakur moving into a combo guard role.
Jerrells is on a flight to Memphis now and will join the Hornets tomorrow night when they take on the Grizzlies.
