NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Pelicans says second-round draft choice E.J. Liddell has had surgery to repair torn knee ligaments. The injury to the 6-foot-6 forward from Ohio State occurred July 11 during a Summer League game  against the Atlanta Hawks in Las Vegas. The Pelicans say the procedure performed Monday was a right ACL reconstruction and that Liddell remains out indefinitely. Liddell averaged 19.4 points and 7.9 rebounds with the Buckeyes last season. He was drafted 41st overall by New Orleans.
