    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Zion Williamson, in the span of one pandemic-compressed offseason, has gone from being a rookie on playing-time restrictions to a New Orleans Pelicans elder statesman with no limits on his minutes. Williamson’s eagerly awaited transformation to a leader in the locker room and on the court is also occurring under a new coach in Stan Van Gundy, whose plain-spoken, detail oriented, “old-school” style seems to appeal to the biggest star on his roster. These are heady times for New Orleans’ NBA franchise, which has seen its front office, roster and coaching staff almost entirely overhauled since the hiring of David Griffin as Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations in the spring of 2019. Griffin only cautions observers not to expect too much, too fast. “We believe we have the makings of a playoff roster here, but we also recognize we’ve had incredible amounts of change...

    Rajon Rondo is reportedly turning down the player option he has with the LA Lakers and entertaining offers in free agency. Considering how Rondo played in the playoffs, many teams will look to add a veteran like him. However, that means that there are going to be quite a few teams looking to snag Rondo for their team. One of those teams may just be Rondo’s former team, the New Orleans Pelicans. Rondo played for the Pelicans for one season in 2017-18. He averaged 8.3 points and 8.2 assists before leaving the team to join LeBron James on the LA Lakers. However, most of the Lakers team from 2018-19 were traded to the Pelicans for Anthony Davis, including Josh Hart. Hart openly aired how he feels about Rondo being a free agent, saying that he would love to play with the latter again with the Pelicans. One of my favorite...
    In a recent article, Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report created a list of trades that would shock every NBA fanbase in the 2020 offseason. These include the blockbuster deal that would send Ben Simmons to the New Orleans Pelicans. In the proposed scenario, the Pelicans would be sending a package that includes Jrue Holiday, Lonzo Ball, JJ Redick, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, the No. 13 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, and a 2021 first-rounder to the Sixers in exchange for Simmons and Al Horford. Though it would cost them some of their core players and two first-round selections, the proposed deal would make a lot of sense for the Pelicans. As Swartz noted, the suggested trade would allow the Pelicans to form the league’s most promising trio in Simmons, Brandon Ingram, and Zion Williamson next season. “Simmons, Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson on the same team? Give David Griffin the...
    Los Angeles Clippers assistant Tyronn Lue continues to make the rounds on the interview circuit as he seeks his next head coaching opportunity in the NBA. Per a Twitter report from The Athletic‘s Shams Charania, he will meet with the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday regarding their current vacancy. Lue has been considered a top candidate to fill a number of coaching vacancies around the league this summer. As shared by The Inquisitr in August, there was reportedly mutual interest between he and the Philadelphia 76ers after the franchise elected to move on from Brett Brown. Since that time, however, the coaching landscape has changed significantly. Per ESPN, the Sixers reportedly reached agreement on a five-year pact with Lue’s former Clippers boss, Doc Rivers, on Thursday. Nevertheless, it seems to be a matter of when, not if, Lue will return to the top spot on the sidelines for an NBA...

    Ideas, anybody? The Dixie Brewing Company is asking the public for help in choosing a new brand name to reflect a more inclusive and unified future. On Monday, the New Orleans-based brewery announced it would be seeking public feedback until Sept. 25 for original suggestions to rebrand the business and its products, according to Fox 8. “Join us on our journey to make the next 113 years as special as the past 113 years has been,” a name suggestion webpage reads, asking fans to submit their best pitches and explain what makes the ideas great.

    The New Orleans Pelicans have a bright future with a great young core. However, during the NBA Bubble seeding games, it was obvious that they lacked experience. Another concern for them has to be a string of poor performances from the former no. 2 pick, Lonzo Ball. Ball arrived in New Orleans after the Anthony Davis trade earlier this season. While Brandon Ingram has shown great improvement, Ball’s story has been the complete opposite. He has been very inconsistent and hasn’t lived up to expectations. In order to start things from a new perspective, Pelicans decided to fire coach Alvin Gentry right after the seeding games. But it might not be enough for the Pelicans to make the playoffs in a stacked Western Conference. New Orleans Pelicans exploring options After trading Anthony Davis, Pelicans went into a complete rebuild. Luckily, the basketball gods blessed them with the first pick...
    Alvin Gentry has reportedly been relieved of his duties as head coach of the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Andrew Lopez were the first to report on his official dismissal from the job via Twitter on Saturday. The Pelicans just wrapped up a season in which they compiled a 30-42 record and failed to qualify for postseason play. With the team boasting a roster that included the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, Zion Williamson, first-time All-Star Brandon Ingram, former No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball and quality veterans in Jrue Holiday and JJ Redick, New Orleans had appeared to be in the mix for a playoff spot before the 2019-20 campaign tipped off. However, Gentry’s club lost 13 consecutive games early in the season, dropping its record to 7-22 at the time and facilitating the need for the team to put together several...

But there was a lot to like from what is a very young team. Brandon Ingram solidified himself as a 20 point per game scorer at only 22-years-old. Lonzo Ball looked like he found something resembling a jumper, even if consistency still escapes him.

    President Donald Trump has strongly denounced athletes who choose to kneel during the playing of the U.S. national anthem, proclaiming he would not watch professional sports where it occurs. In response, New Orleans Pelicans sharpshooter JJ Redick put Trump on blast for those remarks on Thursday, stating his belief that nobody in the NBA cares whether or not the president watches their product. Redick’s statement came after the league officially resumed its 2019-20 season from within a bubble environment at the Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World in Florida. Redick’s Pelicans faced Rudy Gobert and the Utah Jazz in the opening contest of the season restart, which was preceded by players and coaches from both teams kneeling in unison as musician Jon Batiste’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played. “First of all, I don’t think anybody in the NBA cares if President Trump watches basketball.

    The NBA is finally back -- and ahead of the first game of the league's restart, players from both teams joined coaches and referees to kneel during the national anthem. The league had to shift to a bubble format in Orlando, Fla., due to the coronavirus pandemic, and in the aftermath of the nationwide protests, following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, players have focused on social justice, as well as the Black Lives Matter movement. Players from the New Orleans Pelicans and Utah Jazz, as well as the game’s referees, made a statement on Thursday prior to tip-off. During a pre-recorded version of the national anthem, everyone on the court took a knee, while some players locked arms, and others raised their fists in the air. Both the Pelicans and Jazz released statements on the matter. "The New Orleans Pelicans stand by the ideals of freedom of speech...
