The New Orleans Pelicans plan to sign point guard Mike James to a two-way contract, a source confirmed.
James, a 27-year-old rookie, played in 31 games with the Phoenix Suns this season and averaged 10.4 points and 3.8 assists.
He originally joined the Suns on a two-way deal but he was the first player in NBA history to move from a two-way deal to a standard deal when he inked a non-guaranteed deal with the club on Dec. 7.
James eventually hit free agency when Phoenix decided to waive him on Dec. 23.
The only other two-way player on the Pelicans roster is shooting guard Charles Cooke.
