Pelicans' Monty Williams: Norris Cole 'a bright spot'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Pelicans coach Monty Williams said Thursday that newly-acquired point guard Norris Cole has been a bright spot for the team, which has won all three games since Cole came on board, NBA.com reports.

"Norris has been a bright spot for us because he brings some intangibles to the table," Williams said after practice Thursday. "He's played in really big games. Nothing fazes him. We're glad to have him."

The Pelicans valued Cole due to his reputation as a defender but have been surprised by his offensive capacity as well.

"I've always been able to play offense," Cole said. "It's just that with certain dynamics with teams, you're asked to play a certain way and I'm a team player, but I work on my (offense) a lot. I can put the ball in the hole."

Cole has averaged 12.7 points, 4.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds in his three games with the Pelicans while shooting 55.6 percent from the field.


Norris Cole impresses in debut with Pelicans Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) New Pelicans point guard Norris Cole scored 12 points on 4 of 9 shooting from the field in his debut with New Orleans against his old team the Heat.

Cole, who was traded Thursday to New Orleans, said he couldn't sleep when he heard the news.

"It was kind of hard to sleep at first. Just the unknown," Cole said. 

Cole added six rebounds and three assists to his totals in Saturday's win over Miami.


Pelicans have Norris Cole, Justin Hamilton available against Heat


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) The Pelicans will have guard Norris Cole and center Justin Hamilton available for Saturday night's game against the Heat.

The Heat, coincidentally, sent Cole and Hamilton to the Pelicans just before Thursday's trade deadline in a deal that also involved the Suns.


Heat acquire Suns G Goran Dragic in three-team trade


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) The Heat have finalized a deal to acquire embattled Suns guard Goran Dragic in a multiteam just moments before Thursday's trade deadline, Marc Stein of ESPN reports. The trade also includes the Pelicans, according to the Sun Sentinel. The teams announced the trade Thursday night.

Miami shipped Danny Granger and two future first-round picks, a top-seven protected 2017 first-round pick and an unprotected 2021 first-round pick, to Phoenix. Goran's brother, Zoran Dragic, was also included in the deal and will head to Miami. The Pelicans received Justin Hamilton, Norris Cole and Shawne Williams from Miami, and shipped John Salmons, who will be waived, to Phoenix.

Dragic was on the trading block for the last week after he told reporters he didn't trust the Suns' front office heading into free agency at the end of the season. Miami was on the list of Dragic's preferred destinations (Knicks, Lakers) prior to the deadline, and the deal was made with the belief that he'll sign a contract extension with Miami in July, per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The 28-year-old posted career-best numbers in points per game (20.3) and field goal percentage (50.5) last season. This season, he is averaging 12 points, 4.5 assists and 2.2 turnovers per game while shooting 50.1 percent from the field in 52 games. According to the Palm Beach Post, Dragic's 35.5 percent accuracy from 3-point range is down from 40.8 last year, but would rank fifth on Miami's roster.

Cole will be a free agent this offseason and wasn't expected to return to Miami before the deal was made, per the Associated Press. Meanwhile, New Orleans and Williams are expected to reach an agreement on a contract buyout, per Wojnarowski.


Report: Pistons interested in Heat's Norris Cole


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) With guard Brandon Jennings lost for the season, the Pistons have shown interest in acquiring Heat guard Norris Cole, reports the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

While no deal is imminent, exploratory talks are ongoing and the Heat indicated Cole is available. Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said he would like to add another point guard.

"We definitely got to get a third point guard, there's no question," Van Gundy said. "To go out and get a guy who would be a huge difference maker, you probably have to give up something that would hurt you down the road."

In 39 games, Cole is averaging 6.2 points and 3.4 assists.


Report: Hornets exploring trades to replace Kemba Walker


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) The Hornets are exploring trades in order to replace guard Kemba Walker, according to Yahoo Sports.

Charlotte announced Walker would undergo knee surgery on Wednesday. It's not currently known how much time he'll miss due to the injury. In order to offset the loss, the Hornets are already looking at trade possibilities. Both Kings guard Ramon Sessions and Heat guard Norris Cole are on the radar. 

Sessions is averaging 5.7 points and 2.6 assists per game.

Cole is averaging 6.2 points and 3.4 assists per game.


Heat's Pat Riley denies he had a package deal for Nets' Brook Lopez


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Heat president Pat Riley denied previous reports that Miami had offered forward Josh McRoberts in a package deal for Nets center Brook Lopez, according to the Miami Herald. According to a previous report from Yahoo! Sports, Miami offered McRoberts, Norris Cole and Chris Andersen for Lopez. Trade talks for Lopez died down, but could ramp back up leading up to the trade deadline.

"There's a lot of conversation but we're not active," Riley said. "I'm not going to move chairs. I've been in the chair-moving business before and that's all you do is move chairs around…

"If there is something that makes sense that can really help us, then we would consider it. But we're not about to give up assets that we don’t have, that we need, to make a lateral move out of desperation, to take what I think is a playoff team to make the playoffs. If it's a player to take us into the future, we'll think about it. It's fluid."
