New Orleans Pelicans: Live from Summer League

To most, Summer League is a poor man’s D-LeagueAll-Star game filled with rosters thrown together at the last minute made up of NBA castoffs, well known 2nd year players and superstar rookies. The result is some really ugly basketball, but, for fans, it offers the chance to witness young stars get their feet wet for the […] New Orleans Pelicans: Live from Summer League - Pelican...

The fate of New Orleans Pelicans rests in Buddy Hield's hands

Buddy Hield or bust! It's tough to be a small market team these days. It seems that every superstar eventually leaves for greener pastures. With the recent departure of Kevin Durant from the Oklahoma City Thunder, who were just a few minutes away from punching their ticket to the NBA Finals, it seems a little hopeless that the NBA's smallest market, the New Orleans Pelicans, will...

New Orleans Balances Out 2016 NBA Draft with Sure Thing and Question Mark

The Pels’ 2016 draft was a crucial one. Their 2015-2016 campaign was disappointing, with consistent injuries leading New Orleans to a 30-52 record and fourth from the bottom in the Western Conference standings.
