The New Orleans Pelicans did the expected on Tuesday when they brought in forward/center Lou Amundson. They also signed swingman Josh Childress. To make room for the free agents the Pelicans released Lance Thomas and Arinze Onuaku. Both players did not have full salary protection for the season. Why did the Pelicans make those moves now?
