The New Orleans Pelicans announced Thursday they have traded guard Jeremy Lamb to the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for veteran guard and former teammate Jerami Grant.

The deal will net the Pelicans the 26-year-old Grant, who has played in 16 games with the Spurs this season.

He played a total of 13 games in New Orleans this season after being traded to San Antonio.

He had five points and two assists.

Grant, a second-round pick (No. 77 overall) in the 2012 NBA Draft, was a backup last season to starter Ryan Anderson.

Grant was a member of the 2013 NBA champion Chicago Bulls.

Grant averaged 3.9 points and 1.8 assists in 21 games with Chicago last season.

Grant has spent time with the Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks.
