Ryan Anderson (neck) tweeted that he's been cleared for contact.

Darius Miller re-signed with the Pelicans on Friday.

Miller averaged 4.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 16.1 minutes per game last year with the Pelicans. Though those totals were low, when he had more playing time towards the end of the season he was much more effective, and looks to continue that trend this upcoming season.

New Orleans, as expected, has released newly acquired forward Omri Casspi, who will find new team in free agency if he clears waivers.

Casspi was picked up as part of a salary dump in the Omer Asik trade with the Rockets. He was expected to be released, so this is hardly unexpected.

Vegas Summer League Day 7: Russ Smith scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting with five rebounds, six assists, a steal, and four turnovers in a losing effort Thursday to the Hornets.

Smith was a second round pick in this past draft by the Sixers but was part of a deal that sent him to the Pelicans. Smith played college basketball at Louisville and will likely backup Pelicans starter Jrue Holiday at point guard.
