With a new coach in town and most of the players still with the team, I hope to see an improved Pelicans.

I'm guessing Anderson will post better numbers than last year and of course, Davis will be a monster on both sides again :D

    they should start an early negotiation with RAnderson. baka mangyari sa kanila yun nangyari sa OMagic.




    and i think they only have 6 players with live contracts for the next season.

    expect them to dip into free agency early because they need atleast 2 Center and a backup PG. re-sign LBabbit who is a good 3D guy.

    Anthony Davis Agrees To Five-Year, $145M Extension With Pelicans

    Damn son. Dude got PAID. Good for NOP to lock him up for at least 5 years. Now they just need to surround him with good role players as I think he will be the best player in the league within the next 3 seasons.

    No. I am a fan of James "The Real King" Harden.

    the TRUE MVP and RIGHTFUL NBA CHAMPION. Chamba lang GSW. Maswerte si LeBron at hindi sila ang nakatapat dahil malamang SWEEP ang mangyayari sa finals. ;)

    The opening game massacre is finally over. Severely handicapped Pelicans with 6 players out for today's game lost to GSW 111-95.. Anthony Davis finished the game with a woeful 18 pts 6 rebs 3 blks and an atrocious 4-20 shooting from the field coupled with 5 turnovers.

    sayang lang yung Davis-Noel twin tower combo sana, madali naman makakuha ng ok na point guard in this era
  • gotta lick itgotta lick it Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    they have NCole and ISmith. malaking kawalan ba si JHoliday?

    there are many available free agent point guards ..... NCalathes, JFredette, BGordon, and AShevd.

    Good news, mukhang mananalo na rin yung NOLA ngayon..

    bad news, Unibrow is injured

    I thought the Pels are going forward with Gentry at the helm. They're going to miss the playoffs this year.

    Should the Pels keep RAnderson? Or trade him for a wing player? :confused:
  • rationalrational Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    59 points, 20 rebounds!

    Kelan ba maging free agent si Unibrow?

    DEMARCUS COUSINS TRADED TO PELICANS FOR TYREKE EVANS, BUDDY HIELD AND MORE
    Scott Polacek
    February 20, 2017

    You would be hard-pressed to find many better ways for an NBA team to improve its low-post presence than the addition of DeMarcus Cousins, and that is exactly what the New Orleans Pelicans did Sunday night.

    The Sacramento Kings traded Cousins to the Pelicans, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The deal still needs to be finalized, but Wojnarowski reported New Orleans will send at least Buddy Hield and its 2017 first-round pick to Sacramento. ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway will join Hield as part of the trade package, which also includes a future second-round pick.

    Shams Charania of The Vertical added Omri Casspi will be going to New Orleans as well.

    While Cousins' name has been frequently included in trade rumors in the past, this is somewhat of a shift from where he reportedly was before the 2016-17 season. Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders reported in August "the Kings and Cousins have agreed to take a fresh-start approach to the relationship."

    Kyler noted Cousins was apparently a fan of head coach Dave Joerger, and "incoming calls from other teams have been dismissed. There seems to be zero desire to even talk about a Cousins trade from the Kings' side."

    What's more, Amico Hoops (h/t Sporting News and Yahoo Sports) noted opposing general managers said the Kings were asking for too much in return in possible deals.

    However, Arizona Sports' John Gambadoro reported in January the Kings and Phoenix Suns had trade discussions.

    Alas, Cousins was traded Sunday before he became a free agent in 2018, which means the Kings at least received something in return for one of the best players in the league before he potentially hit the open market.

    Cousins did have a strained relationship with former coach George Karl before the latter was fired after the 2015-16 campaign. According to Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead, Cousins called the coach out after a November 2015 loss. Sam Amick of USA Today (h/t James Herbert of CBS Sports) previously reported "Cousins' camp was reportedly against the Karl hire in the first place."

    Any fresh start with the franchise and a new coach ended with this trade, and his new team landed a three-time All-Star and a two-time member of the Second-Team All-NBA.

    Entering 2016-17 Cousins had three straight seasons averaging more than 22 points and 11 rebounds per night, and he is a double-double threat every time he steps on the floor. It is not everyday a team can land an impact playmaker like that, and he even provides solid interior defense after averaging better than a block per game in the last three campaigns.

    As if Cousins wasn't valuable enough as a dominant scorer and rebounder on the inside, he added a three-point shot to his game last season. The big man shot 33.3 percent from downtown in 2015-16 and connected on 1.1 per game after he never averaged more than 0.1 made three-pointer a night in any previous season.

    Cousins is also only 26 years old and theoretically in the middle of his prime, which is a scary proposition to opposing defenses.

    Despite his individual brilliance, Cousins has never reached the postseason in his career. He does have a gold medal as part of the United States national team at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, so his new team can take solace in the fact he has experience playing in a pressure-packed environment.

    Pelicans fans have rightfully criticized general manager Dell Demps for the team's failure to surround Anthony Davis with a strong supporting cast. Prior to Cousins' arrival, New Orleans looked destined for a second straight year out of the postseason with little hope for significant improvement in the near future.

    Together, Cousins and Davis will form one of the most formidable frontcourts in the NBA. Although the Pelicans are still a few players away from being a title contender, Cousins is the star the team desperately needed to pair with Davis.

    sa wakas makakapasok na sa playoffs ang kings.. gawa na kayo ng bagong thread for kings..

    ^ good job for the SKings. if the NOPelican wants to enter the playoffs, the should have traded for RWestbrick. just look at the all stars game, AD#23 52 and RW#0 41 points. :D

    DMCousins will be a clog in the offense of AD unless, they plan to turn ADavis into a shooting forward.

    Cousins has been screwing with the King for a long time. and, this is the best time to dump the pain in the azz. now, the burden of cuddling DMC goes to NOP.

    TEvans will make a good addition and he will be easy to re-sign. he is also a free agent next year. he knows he has limited seasons in the NBA especially with that bad knee. plus, Tyreke is a former Kings. he had his highlights in Sacremento. BHield can score in double figures and he is good for 4 years. the NBA is now a small ball league.

    the SKings exchanged for 18.9M + drafts for 21.5M OCasspi and DMCousins.

    if they will let Evans walk, the SKings has the cap to sign a franchise player.

    the biggest catch is the 1st round pick. NOP wont make the playoffs and they just exchanged an early pick. the team scouts should work overtime and convince international players to join the league.

    the problem is LGalloway has a big player option.

    Ugh, hindi naman si Boogie yung sakit ng ulo ng Kings, sila Divac tsaka yung bumbay na may-ari ng Kings ang problema dun

    yung may-ari na walang alam sa basketball at si Divac na isang yes-man..obsessed masyado sa Warriors, iniisip niya na magiging mas magaling si Hield kay Curry

    Kings are tanking, waived na rin si Barnes sa roster

    at tsaka, sinong big name FA ang pupunta sa Kings kung kupal yung GM at yung may-ari?
