The Pelicans will sign free agent center Jerome Jordan.

Jordan doesn't have a lot of experience in the NBA despite being 29 years old, and he posted averages of just 3.1 points and 2.4 boards in 44 appearances for the Nets last season. The Pelicans are struggling with injuries with Alexis Ajinca (hamstring) and Omer Asik (calf) both on the shelf, so Jordan will provide some emergency depth for now.

The Nets will not make a qualifying offer to Jerome Jordan, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The Nets are simply looking to keep as much flexibility as possible, so this isn't surprising. Jordan could potentially return to Brooklyn, but he likely won't be a priority after averaging just 3.1 points and 2.4 boards in 44 regular-season appearances. Jordan isn't on the fantasy radar.

Jerome Jordan had 10 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in 29 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

With Brook Lopez out indefinitely, Jordan will see some run as Mason Plumlee's back up at center. But you'd have to be in a pretty deep league to be thinking about picking him up right now.

Nets C Jerome Jordan scored five points and grabbed five rebounds in 13 minutes on Saturday, earning more minutes than backup C Mason Plumlee.

Lionel Hollins said after the game that Jordan deserves to be in the rotation, and it's easy to see why -- he's playing solid ball on both ends, while Plumlee is struggling and shooting just 37.5 percent from the field. This position battle is only worth monitoring in the deepest of leagues.

Jerome Jordan went 7-of-7 from the field Sunday, scoring 17 points to go along with six rebounds and one block.

When asked about Jordan's performance, coach Lionel Hollins said, "Jerome who? I thought that was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar." All joking aside, it was a great performance from a player who just recently signed a training camp deal. However, unless he continues to put stats up like this he may not even make the regular-season roster.

Unrestricted FA Jerome Jordan is hoping to land with a new team after being waived by the Rockets.

"I’m just waiting," he said. "I know my agent is talking and working for me. I’m trying to wait it out and just keep working. I want to be in a good position to play and compete for a back-up spot. I’m going to keep working hard and show teams that I can play." Jordan will likely have to wait for a training camp injury to hit before his market might heat up.
