When a sports project seems absolutely anchored in a no man’s land, there is a danger that all hopes will be diluted if ambitious movements are not made. That’s what he faces New Orleans Pelicans, aware that he has to move in a notable way before the transfer period closes. That is why the NBA rumors around ambitious decisions by a team that continues to miss Zion on a regular basis and seems bereft of any short-term competitive goals. The current group of players has not shown the ability to support a big star on his way to glory, so they are willing to sacrifice some pieces in order to explore the signing of a big player, as indicated by Hoopshype.
In their favor is that they have a wide salary margin to make moves, but in opposition, there is the factor that it will be difficult to attract a big star to a project that has not yet taken off. There are two players to whom the transfer poster has been hung, such as Jaxson Hayes and Nickeil Alexander-Walker, while two higher-ranking players with a very good image in the league could also act as a key to a transfer, such as Tomas Satoransky and Josh Hart. Precisely the willingness to get rid of two team men with an important role from the bench is what could bring them closer to a flashy signing.
Josh Hart may be key to CJ McCollum’s arrival
There are two names on the table that the management of New Orleans Pelicans and for those who are willing to make an effort: Harrison Barnes and CJ McCollum. There is great competition for both, but they are convinced that they can attract one of them, thus significantly increasing the competitiveness of the squad. In addition to that asset, he has a commercial exemption of $17 million, which would allow them to engage in the bidding for a mid-range player who could give them a notable qualitative leap, such as Roberto Covington, Marcus Morris or Josh Richardson. In short, many options and the need for some of them to work.
