Which Free Agents Should They Consider?

Whilst you can argue The New Orleans Pelicans already won in the draft acquiring perennial all-star DeMarcus Cousins for the 5th pick (and a couple or other pieces), there has not been much movement in the Big Easy. Jrue Holiday signed a new 5 year, $126 million contract, tying up a lot of cap space, and trades […] Which Free Agents Should They Consider? - Pelican Debrief - Pelican Debrief - A New Orleans Pelicans Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Anthony Davis will carry less of the offense, be more efficient thanks to DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo

Anthony Davis will carry less of the offense, be more efficient thanks to DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo

Alvin Gentry took the training wheels off two years ago. Now enough talent exists for Davis to spread his wings. Anthony Davis had arguably the most efficient season for a 21 year old in NBA history just two years ago. He was the darling of the league, the favored building block of NBA GMs, and a legitimate MVP candidate according to the esteemed Zach Lowe. All of that, even in retrospect, made sense. Davis was going to be unleashed in Alvin Gentry’s go-go offense and AD had posted an absurd 30.8 PER the year before with the far less respected Monty Williams calling the shots. The list of...

The Bird Calls Podcast Ep. 7: An in-depth look at Cheick Diallo, Quinn Cook and other notable summer league action

Exhibition talk can be cheap, but we promise that at least the listen will be fun! On this seventh podcast edition, we primarily focus on the New Orleans Pelicans through two games in the summer league, individually breaking down the play of the entire roster, discuss the Darius Miller addition and mention why Jamelle McMillan acting as the head coach in Las Vegas and DeMarcus Cousins hanging with Dell Demps are all good things. Through two games, Cheick Diallo and Quinn Cook have acquitted themselves incredibly well. However, we not only focus on all of the good aspects — highlighting...

The pairing of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins may not be good enough to swim against the current

The pairing of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins may not be good enough to swim against the current

Two former Kentucky Wildcats form the league’s next potential great “Twin Tower,” or is it more of a mismatched illusion that will only result in further disappointment? The Golden State Warriors recently completed their second title run in three years, often employing a “Death Lineup,” which, of course, features small ball and Draymond Green as the big man. The Warriors revolutionized this era, perhaps defined it, despite precursors to stretching the court dating perhaps back to the mid 2000s. This is why New Orleans Pelicans’ entire team philosophy focused around a game...

Malachi Richardson looks to prove himself after becoming ‘the forgotten one’

The second-year Kings guard is looking to reinsert himself in the conversation as one of Sacramento’s top prospects. The Sacramento Kings roster has gone through quite a restructuring over the last five months. After trading DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans, the focus shifts to a youth movement. With so many new faces and potential from guys like Skal Labissière, Willie Cauley-Stein, Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdanović and De'Aaron Fox, there's another young player who feels like he still has a lot to prove and was forgotten about in the midst of all the change – Malachi...
