The New Orleans Pelicans are currently a team that needs to make a push upwards in the standings. They have two talented young stars who are cementing themselves as mainstays in this league: Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. The talented young duo is good, but the team success hasn’t been there: the Pelicans are currently in possession of a 4-7 record after their most recent loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Pelicans could elect to make a move for an experienced veteran to help them compete for a spot in the playoffs.
The Toronto Raptors have a player that the Pelicans could want, who is in the last year of his contract. Franchise legend Kyle Lowry is 34 (soon to be 35) and could possibly be traded before his contract expires. Lowry deserves to go to a team where he can compete for one of the last years of his career, and that team could be the Pelicans. Here is the potential trade:
New Orleans Pelicans Receive: Kyle Lowry
Toronto Raptors Receive: Lonzo Ball, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Eric Bledsoe
