Eric Gordon Out Indefinitely (Again)


Pelicans Guard Eric Gordon is injured again. The team said that the player will be out “indefinitely” while he undergoes medical evaluation. Gordon’s four year, 58 million dollar contract was lauded after Chris Paul’s departure, but since arrival Gordon and his salary look more like an albatross than a Pelican.


Free Throw: Pelicans to Host Open Practice


It’s early October and once again NOLA basketball fans are echoing their annual refrain. “We look good. This is going to be our year.” On Saturday (10.25), the faithful will have a chance to see for themselves when the Pelicans host a free open practice.


Boards Game: Pelicans Unveil New Court


The Pelicans are not afraid of change. The NBA franchise has had three names in total. They introduced a new mascot. Five months later, they changed his look under the pretense of reconstructive surgery. Now, the team is unveiling a new age court.


Pelicans Add 3 to Training Camp Roster


Coming off a 2013-14 season stunted by injuries, the Pelicans are loading up on players this year. On Friday (9.27), the team announced the addition of three journeymen to their training camp roster. Kevin Jones, Dionte Christmas, and Vernon Macklin will be vying to make the final cut for NOLA’s NBA franchise.


Pelicans Go Fishing and Sign Salmons


Pro Basketball has not begun yet. So, fans of NOLA hoops remain hopeful. The Pelicans bolstered said mood today by signing shooting guard/small forward John Salmons.


Pelicans Hold Auditions for Entertainers


Do you dream of taking your love of the Pelicans to the next level? New Orleans’ pro basketball team is currently seeking applicants for entertainment teams, National Anthem singers, and an arena emcee for the upcoming 2014-15 NBA season.


Pelicans Add Shooter Jimmer Fredette


by: Christopher Romaguera
After watching point guard Brian Roberts and wing Anthony Morrow sign with playoff contenders, the Pelicans have beefed up their perimeter rotation with a couple of young prospects. The team signed rookie point guard Russ Smith to a guaranteed two-year contract which contains a team option for a third year earlier this week. On Thursday night, the Pelicans added Jimmer Fredette, signing him to a one year deal at the league minimum. 


Pelicans Finalize Asik Trade


by: Christopher Louis Romaguera

The Pelicans have finalized the trade involving C Omer Asik.  The deal, which was originally announced on June 25, couldn’t be completed until free agency officially began since the Pelicans had to clear the requisite cap space.

New Orleans Pelicans' Offseason Needs



The Pelicans came into the offseason tough to define after spending 2013-14 with so many players on the injury list. The expected featured lineup of Jrue Holiday, Eric Gordon, Tyreke Evans, Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis shared an absurdly small amount of time together. The team missed the playoffs, and also didn’t get a chance to see what a full roster could do. Going forward, losing out on our first round draft pick hurts as well (the Cavaliers won the draft, just one slot ahead of us.) 


Pelicans to Trade for Omer Asik


by Christopher Romaguera

Before the picking even began at Thursday's 2014 NBA draft, the New Orleans Pelicans acquired a starting Center. The Pelicans traded their 2015 first round pick for Houston Rockets Center Omer Asik.
