People familiar with deals: G Fredette and F Miller agree to free-agent deals with Pelicans

People familiar with the moves say the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to contract terms with guard Jimmer Fredette and forward Darius Miller.

Two people confirmed Fredette's deal and one person confirmed Miller's to The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because the transactions have not been announced.

The 6-foot-2 Fredette averaged 5.6 points in 49 games last season with Sacramento and Chicago, shooting nearly 48 percent from 3-point range. A former NCAA national player of the year with BYU, Fredette was picked 10th overall by Sacramento in 2011.

The 6-8 Miller was New Orleans' second-round pick in 2012. Last season, he averaged 4.4 points in 45 games.

The acquisitions provide the Pelicans perimeter shooters they needed after Anthony Morrow's departure in free agency for Oklahoma City.
