NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans general manager Dell Demps says a trade with Brooklyn sending guard Tyshawn Taylor and cash to the Pelicans in exchange for the draft rights to Edin Bavcic is complete.

The trade, first reported Saturday, sends Taylor to a Pelicans squad missing starting guard Jrue Holiday, who is sidelined indefinitely with a stress fracture in his right shin.

Taylor was selected by the Nets out of Kansas in second round of the 2012 NBA draft. He has appeared in 29 games this season for Brooklyn, averaging 3.9 points and 1.6 assists in 11.7 minutes per game.

The 6-foot-10 Bavcic, of Bosnia-Herzegovina, was a 2006 second-round draft choice by Toronto before his rights were traded first to Philadelphia and later New Orleans. He’s playing professionally in Europe.
