The New Orleans Pelicans made a pair of roster moves Saturday before they play in Brooklyn against the Nets.
The Pelicans (28-26) waived guards Mike James and Rashad Vaughn.
The moves are expected to have been made to make the Pelicans players in the buyout market.
The 6-foot-1, 189-pound James signed a two-way contract with New Orleans on Jan. 14 and played in four games for the team, scoring four points and six assists in 18 minutes.
Vaughn, 6-6, 202-pound Vaughn was acquired by the Pelicans for forward Dante Cunningham on Thursday. He did not play in any games for New Orleans.
James is expected to officially join EuroLeague team Panathinaikos, according to a report.
