New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - The New Orleans Pelicans have signed veteran forward John Salmons, the team announced Tuesday.

Salmons, who'll be entering his 13th NBA season, averaged 5.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists over 78 games between Toronto and Sacramento in 2013-14. The 34-year-old was acquired by the Raptors as part of last December's trade that sent Rudy Gay to the Kings and also landed guard Greivis Vasquez and forward Patrick Patterson in Toronto.

Toronto traded Salmons to Atlanta on June 29, with the Hawks buying out the remainder of his contract shortly after to clear salary cap space.

Over 874 career games with five different teams (Philadelphia, Sacramento, Chicago, Milwaukee, Toronto), Salmons has averaged 9.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists.
