Anthony Davis who has been the face of the Pelicans for the past seasons will now join Lebron James as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. This ends what has become a soap opera around the NBA after he demanded to be traded.
The Pelicans who just secured the overall number one pick in the NBA Draft will without a doubt select standout player Zion Williamson, who is being compared to a young LeBron James.
The City of New Orleans is abuzz with speculation that the Pelicans can become a strong team in the Western Conference and build a team that can be competitive with the acquisition of Williamson along with Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart coming over from the Lakers and multiple draft picks added to a Pelicans team that already have a great scorer in Dru Holiday.
The team under Coach Alvin Gentry and new GM David Griffin is poised to build a winning franchise without Davis. Griffin, as all know was the GM of the Cleveland Cavaliers and help build a championship team led by Lebron James. Hopefully, this can be replicated in New Orleans and bring an NBA Title to the Crescent City in the near future
