New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard Anthony Morrow says that he hopes to fit in with his new team.

Anthony Morrow has said that he wants to help the New Orleans Pelicans any way he can, having joined the team earlier in the off-season.

The shooting guard, who spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks, signed for the Pelicans as a free agent in July.

Speaking at a press conference, the 27-year-old said: "Really just continue doing what I've been doing the first four or five years in the league. I want to fit in and play my role. Whether it's off the bench, whatever they ask me to do scoring the ball, really challenging myself as a professional in Monty Williams's system.

"I talked to [Cleveland Cavaliers point guard] Jarrett Jack who was here, and everybody loves him, he is one of my closest friends and he told me that I would really enjoy it here. He told me a lot about what Monty will expect from me defensively.

"First and foremost, I want to do that and continue to work my way in offensively. They know what I can do, so I want to continue to do that as I challenge myself defensively."

Morrow has a career average of 10.9 points per game.
