The Pelicans Are Still Very Active

Updated

on

One league source said yesterday the Pelicans seem open to almost anything that would cement a playoff berth that didn’t include Anthony Davis.

The Pelicans consummated one deal already this cycle sending an Omer Asik package to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for forward Nikola Mirotic. The Pelicans seem increasingly open to more change ahead of the deadline as they try and rebound from losing DeMarcus Cousins to injury.

The Pelicans are very top heavy in the salary department, and with a new deal for Cousins expected this summer, the Pelicans may have to shed some contract money to right size the payroll. Sources peg the Pelicans as the dark horse to make a bold trade at the deadline.

The challenge for all teams looking to move money is that there seems to be limited appetite around the league in taking on cap cash unless it includes significant draft inducements.
