Spurs trade Jerrells

JerrellsAccording to Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld, the San Antonio Spurs have traded guard Curtis Jerrells to the New Orleans Hornets for a future second round pick.

The point guard will reunite with Dell Demps, who was general manager of the Toros for three seasons including Jerrells’ stint with the team, in New Orleans. Jerrells will likely be the second-string point guard behind Chris Paul with Mustafa Shakur moving into a combo guard role.

Jerrells is on a flight to Memphis now and will join the Hornets tomorrow night when they take on the Grizzlies.

Jerrells has been averaging 6.4 points and 2.2 assists for the Spurs in preseason. Any chance the Toros thought they had in retaining him after cuts is now gone.

The trade brings the roster to 16 players.
