NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Pelicans officially signed ex-Louisville guard Russ Smith Tuesday, according to the Pelicans organization. Contract terms were not released due to club policy.

The team traded away the rights to Pierre Jackson in exchange for Smith, who the 76ers took with the No. 47 pick in the draft.

Smith averaged 18.2 points and 4.6 assists during his senior year at Louisville. He was named to the AP All-American First Team and averaged a robust 38.7 percent from the three-point line.

Smith comes with a winning pedigree. He won a national championship with Louisville in 2013, one year after losing to Pelicans' star Anthony Davis in the Final Four.
