LAS VEGAS-- Despite going undrafted in June, Florida alum Patric Young has been hard at work playing for a chance to make it to the NBA with the New Orleans Pelicans in the NBA Summer League.

Saturday, that hard work has paid off.

The former Gator big man signed a two-year contract with New Orleans after impressing in five summer games in Las Vegas, averaging 7.4 points and 8.0 rebounds a game, starting the last four match-ups at power forward.
