New Orleans Pelicans guard Nate Wolters has earned a second 10-day contract, with the team announcing the deal Saturday.

Wolters originally signed with the club Jan. 14.

In five games as a Pelican, Wolters averaged 2.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 11 minutes.

Wolters was the 38th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft by the Washington Wizards before his rights were dealt to the Philadelphia 76ers, and then the Milwaukee Bucks. Appearing in 69 games with Milwaukee, Wolters averaged 6.4 points, 2.9 assists and 2.4 rebounds.

The Pelicans, who have won three of their past four games (and are currently on their third two-game winning streak of the season), will try to put together a three-game winning streak for the first time this season when they host the Dallas Mavericks to begin a six-game home stand. The Pels play nine of their next 10 games at home before the All-Star Game can begin.
