The Pelicans were busy on the transaction wire Saturday morning, entering the final days of the 2016-17 season.
First, they signed swingman Axel Toupane to a 10-day contract out of the NBA Development League, a league source told The Advocate. The 6-foot-7 native of France is a versatile scorer for Raptors 905, averaging 16.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 36 games this season with the Toronto Raptors’ affiliate.
The Pelicans continued on that path, locking down guard Quinn Cook to a two-year contract, allowing the team to control his rights entering the offseason. Cook signed a pair of 10-day contracts with the Pelicans this spring, after being one of the franchise’s final cuts in the preseason.
