Stiemsma gets new deal with New Orleans

Randolph native and former Badger Greg Stiemsma is packing his bags for the Big Easy.

The center has agreed to a one-year contract with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Stiemsma got a one year deal worth $2.7 million.

He spent the last two seasons with the Boston Celtics and the Minnesota Timberwolves. Minnesota released him right before the start of free agency. He averaged 4 points, 3 rebounds last year and led the T-wolves in blocks.
