Pelicans add Greg Stiemsma



NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- People familiar with the deals say the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to contracts with center Greg Stiemsma and guard Anthony Morrow.
   The people say Stiemsma got a one-year deal worth $2.7 million, while Morrow's deal is for about $2 million over two years, with a players' option for the second year. The people spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the moves had not been announced.
   The 6-foot-11 Stiemsma has averaged about 3.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 15 minutes per game during his first two seasons. Morrow, a 43 percent career 3-point shooter, has averaged nearly 11 points during five NBA seasons.
   The Pelicans confirmed they've waived Lance Thomas and renounced their rights to Lou Amundson, Xavier Henry and Roger Mason Jr.
