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.


Feathering the Nest

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.


Still Nesting

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 disappointing mark sounds a lot like the record the team would have if they didn’t make any moves, and kept their first round pick and cap space. While obviously disappointed about missing the playoffs and still healing from their many injuries, the 2013-14 Pelicans did see the emergence of two stars. The team also identified some things that need to change -- namely, defense.


Tom Benson Issues Statement on Sterling Suspension from NBA


Tom Benson has taken a public stand against a fellow team owner, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was suspended from the NBA earlier today. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced Sterling’s suspension from the league and $2.5 million fine earlier this afternoon, after confirming that it was Sterling’s voice on a recording of a racist tirade. 


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.


AD's Career High Lifts Pelicans in OT Thriller


by Will Winston

While some people are wishing for a little bit of luck on this St. Patrick’s weekend, Davis sure doesn’t need any. Two days after setting a career-high on Friday against Portland with 36 points, Anthony Davis upped himself again in Sunday night's 121-120 win against the Boston Celtics with two career-highs, 40 points and 21 rebounds (14-22 FG, 12-12 FT). 


Grizzlies Knock Off Pelicans on Conley Game Winner, 90-88


by Norris Ortolano

Hoping to feed off the momentum of Sunday night’s OT thriller over Denver, the New Orleans Pelicans remained in control for much of last night’s contest versus the Memphis Grizzlies before ultimately falling flat in the final minutes. The end result was a last second Mike Conley layup over Austin Rivers and a 90-88 victory for the visiting Grizzlies.


Pelicans Down Nuggets in OT, 111-107


by Christopher Louis Romaguera

Anthony Davis tied a career high with 32 points along with 17 rebounds and six blocks, as the New Orleans Pelicans (26-37, 15-14 home) beat the Denver Nuggets (27-35, 11-19 road) in overtime Sunday night at the Smoothie King Center, 111-107.
