    Free agent JJ Reddick to sign witb Pels.
    I'm not sure how much this helps the team to get better. Need to get a good big.

    Trade being finalized with the Jazz for Derrick Favors. Giving up 2 2nd round picks from the Warriors.

    Also signed Nicolo Melli from the Euro Leagues, 6'9 forward who has shot 42% from behind the arc over the past 4 years.

    Really like the talent Griffin is stocking, but we need some point guard depth. Wish they'd reconsider and resign Elfrid Peyton.

    This is suddenly a deep team - on paper. Hope they mesh. This team will win a good percentage of games methinks. Playoffs baby.

    Summer league opener is Friday night vs Knicks, 8:30 on ESPN. Because of the association's goofy trade rules, the players we drafted as a result of the draft day trade with the Hawks can not play in this game, or (I think) the 2nd game Saturday night.

    The big attraction here is that Zion will be going up against his former teammate at Duke, RJ Barrett. And yes, the league has some stupid rules.

    Will the game be on TV?

    Re-signed Darius Miller today.
    Friday and Saturday games are on ESPN. They play the Bulls Monday on NBA TV and then the Cavs Wednesday on ESPN2

    pelicans undeafetd in the preseason.

    now, i know football and baseball perseason are meaningless, if not inversely correlated with success. but the NBA preseason teams that win really are good teams.

    zion is scoring, team is deep. buy your playoff tickets. i just bought a pelicans hoodie so i look cool in the winter.

    I didn't see the game tonight but I caught the postgame interview with Zion. He has played the equivalent of one full game, 48 minutes in 3 games, He has scored 55 points.
