Pelicans trade Cunningham to Nets for Vaughn

By  | 

NEW ORLEANS - - A person familiar with the situation says the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to trade veteran forward Dante Cunningham to Brooklyn for third-year guard Rashad Vaughn.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal - reached shortly before Thursday's NBA trade deadline - has not been announced.

The trade was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.

The 6-foot-6 Vaughn hadn't even spent a week with the Nets, who acquired him and a second-round pick Monday in a trade sending center Tyler Zeller to Milwaukee.

Vaughn has averaged 3.1 points in 134 NBA games since the Bucks selected him 17th overall in the 2015 draft.

The 6-8 Cunningham, a nine-year veteran, has played in 51 games for New Orleans this season, starting 24, and has averaged 5 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
