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.)

New Orleans Pelicans 2013-14 Season in Review
When the New Orleans Pelicans made two of the surprise moves of the offseason by trading for Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans, a final record of 34-48 was not the desired outcome.

The team also identified some things that need to change -- namely, defense.

Pelicans' Comeback Rips Nets, 109-104 (OT)
by Will Winston
Down 22 with 10 minutes left in the third quarter, the New Orleans Pelicans seemed like they were toast. Not light, golden brown toast, but the kind of toast that’s been forgotten in the toaster for hours and crisps apart when you try to pick it up. Yet in the NBA, no lead is ever a safe lead, and at that moment the Pels proceeded to stage their second largest comeback in franchise history.
