Sources: Pelicans Hire Danny Ferry as Special Adviser


The New Orleans Pelicans have hired former Atlanta Hawks president of basketball operations Danny Ferry as special adviser, nearly two years after he took a leave of absence from the Hawks over insensitive racial remarks.

Ferry will be a consultant to the Pelicans in a similar fashion as Hall of Famer Jerry West is to the Golden State Warriors, a source said.
