New Orleans Pelicans general manager Dell Demps is “definitely coming back” for his seventh season, a league source said on Friday night. There had been speculation in recent weeks that Demps was on the hot seat and the franchise could move in a different direction.
A source within the franchise last week denied a report last week from the Racine Journal that said former Detroit Pistons player and executive Joe Dumars could be hired by the Pelicans as their new president of basketball operations, replacing Demps.
