Dante Cunninghams basketball exile is over.The New Orleans Pelicans signed Cunningham to give them some much-needed depth at forward and said he would be available Thursday night on the road against Golden State.Its such a relief, Cunningham told The Associated Press in a phone interview. I just knew that with the time and the situation that was going on, I kind of had to wait it out and get the right opportunity.Cunningham was charged last April with felony domestic assault after his girlfriend at the time accused him of choking her and slamming her head against a wall. She also accused him of sending her threatening messages, but the charge was dropped in August after an investigation uncovered inconsistencies in her story.Cunningham was a free agent after his contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves expired at the end of the season. But even after Hennepin County authorities dropped the charges, many teams were reluctant to consider signing him after the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal rocked the NFL.Cunningham spent the previous two seasons with the Timberwolves, carving a niche as a valuable bench player who was reliable on both ends of the floor. He averaged 6.3 points and 4.1 rebounds last year and was paid $2.1 million in the final season of his contract. Cunningham said he had preliminary talks with a few teams, but didnt get any firm interest while the charge was being investigated.Cunningham urged authorities to pursue charges against Miryah Herron for making false allegations, but Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told The Associated Press in October he was reluctant to do so in part because of the message it could send to victims of domestic violence.To what extent all of this impacts his livelihood in the future, I hope it doesnt, Freeman said at the time. I hope he can go forward and play basketball.Cunninghams agent, Joel Bell, has worked to try to help his client clear his name. But its taken some time.The criticism that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league received for its initial two-game suspension of Rice, the former Baltimore Ravens running back who was caught on video punching his then-fiancee in a hotel elevator, gave pause to NBA front offices as they evaluated the 27-year-old Cunningham.Cunningham said his conversations with the Pelicans were centred on making sure that all the facts were consistent with what I had to say and what the police report had to say and what the police had to say. At this point now were just moving on.New Orleans coach Monty Williams said he was confident Cunningham would be able to fit in with his new team.Hes pro, hes been around, Williams said Thursday night prior to the Pelicans game against the Warriors. He understands what I want from him because Ive coached him already. Hes watched our team so he knows what we need.The Pelicans were one of a number of teams to look at Cunningham and last week they scheduled a workout. As talks progressed, team officials reached out to the league to try to determine whether Cunningham would face any kind of discipline for even being accused of domestic violence.We have commenced an independent review of the matter and the charges that were subsequently dropped against Mr. Cunningham, but at this point we have no basis to conclude that he engaged in conduct that warrants discipline from the NBA, NBA spokesman Mike Bass said.With Anthony Davis emerging as one of the best players in the league, the Pelicans are pushing to get into the playoffs in the hyper-competitive Western Conference. Shooting guard Eric Gordons left shoulder injury has tested the teams depth and three straight losses have dropped them to 7-8 and 11th in the West.Gordon is out indefinitely with a torn labrum and the Pelicans initially responded by moving 6-foot-6 Tyreke Evans from small forward to shooting guard and starting 6-foot-8 Darius Miller at small forward. Miller was ineffective, and the Pelicans waived him and Patric Young on Sunday to start making room for Cunningham.Cunningham is a more natural power forward, but has the flexibility to play small forward, especially on the defensive end.I am definitely in shape, but I havent been away from the game atmosphere for this long, Cunningham said. I assume its just like riding a bike and once I hit that court its going to be back to normal.He was drafted by the Trail Blazers in 2009 when Williams was an assistant in Portland, and Cunningham welcomes the reunion during such a trying time.Coach Monty, he was the one that moulded me and sculpted me as a rookie with Portland, Cunningham said. He showed me how to be a professional and carry myself as a professional. To come back to him and not necessarily start over again, but have him back in my life again, I definitely need that.___AP Sports Writer Brett Martel in New Orleans contributed to this report.

Garcia had eight birdies overall to go with a lone bogey on the fourth to move to an 18-under total of 198 at the Asian Tour event. "I was able to hit some really nice shots and then was able to roll two or three really good putts in and it was nice to be able to finish birdie, birdie on this difficult finishing stretch," Garcia said.LOS ANGELES -- Jordan Farmar is moving down the hall at Staples Center, leaving the Los Angeles Lakers to sign with the Clippers, who have also signed centre Spencer Hawes. Farmar averaged 10.1 points, 4.9 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 41 games for the struggling Lakers last season. The free agent guard won NBA titles in 2009 and 2010 with the Lakers, who drafted him out of UCLA in 2006. The deal allows the 27-year-old Los Angeles native to stay home and become the backup to Chris Paul after UCLA allum Darren Collison chose to leave and sign with Sacramento.dddddddddddd. Farmar was bothered by a torn left hamstring and a strained right groin that cost him half of last season. Hawes averaged 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 80 games with Cleveland and Philadelphia last season. The 26-year-old big man has also played for Sacramento during his seven-year career. The team announced the moves Wednesday night, hours before free agents could begin signing contracts on Thursday. ' ' '
