Coaches usually try not to make too big a deal of any particular win or loss, but that wasn’t the way Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry approached what his team did on Monday night.

The Pelicans (2-9) let a double-digit lead slip away but made enough plays late to pull off a 106-105 win over the Boston Celtics (5-5) and give New Orleans its first home win of the season.

“Not a monkey, a gorilla maybe,” Gentry said when asked if Monday’s win took a monkey off his team’s back.

It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.

The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
