The pelicans from New Orleans abandon guard Jarrett Jack and Garlon Green.
Jack had signed a week before the training camp with New Orleans and averaged 3.3 points and two assists in three games for the season.
Jack has played in the NBA for 13 years, including two stints with New Orleans. Jack has an average of almost 11 points per game over a career that has included stints in Portland, Indiana, Toronto, Golden State, Cleveland, Brooklyn and New York. He averaged a career-best 15.6 points in the 2011-12 season with New Orleans.
Green signed with New Orleans in July after playing in the summer team of Pelicans in Las Vegas. He averaged four points and 1.5 rebounds in four pre-season games.
The pelicans open the regular season on Wednesday evening in Houston.
