The New Orleans Pelicans seem to have one goal in mind over the course of the next couple of years and it’s quite simple: keep Zion Williamson happy.
This offseason the Pelicans let Lonzo Ball slip to the Chicago Bulls without even a whisper of New Orleans trying to bring him back. They have a new head coach in Willie Green after the Stan Van Gundy hire didn’t seem to work out for either side after just one season. There are a lot of moving parts for a franchise trying to show stability for their young superstar.
Now, it appears they are trying to add Buddy Hield via a sign-and-trade with the Sacramento Kings. The problem the Pelicans may run into though, is what else they could send besides Josh Hart. Via, Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report, New Orleans is going over its options.
