NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The New Orleans Hornets have acquired point guard Jerryd Bayless from the Portland Trail Blazers for a conditional future first-round pick.
The deal Saturday gives Bayless a chance to back up All-Star Chris Paul and reunites him with new Hornets coach Monty Williams, an assistant in Portland the last two seasons.
Bayless was taken by Indiana with the No. 11 pick in the 2008 draft and traded to Portland in a draft-day trade. He made 11 starts last season, averaging 12.6 points, and has scored 6.8 points per game for his career.
