  • Pelicans Scoop: DeMarcus Cousins Edition

    The dust has settled a bit from the trade that shook up the NBA. Now that DeMarcus Cousins (and Omri Casspi) are in, and Langstong Galloway, Tyreke Evans, Buddy Hield, and a future 2017 first and secound round pick are gone, our writers give you their thoughts on the deal. Let us know what you […]

  • The Pels’ Supporting Cast and Their Missing Second Lead

    Much has been made of the Pelicans supporting cast, or apparent lack thereof, recently. If you’re on this blog, you’re sure to have heard, at least a dozen times, “I feel sorry for Anthony Davis! He has such a terrible supporting squad around him! And so they keep losing games… I hope he gets traded […]

  • What Is This Process?

    I decided to talk to Jason about the team building the Pelicans have done in the AD era. This was started just before the season and went through today, which makes the academic rambling perhaps a little more interesting. Nick: Jason, a new season is upon us, and excitement is in the air. Let’s put […]

  • Figuring Out Solomon Hill

    Last off-season, the Pelicans made some moves, most of which were met with indifference to slight approval from fans. Well, to be fair, I think most fans were actually excited to see Gordon leave, but some of that was mitigated by seeing Ryno in Houston. Still, most of the new guys that were brought in […]

  • Pelicans Sign Quinn Cook to Training Camp Roster

    ESPN staff writer and apparent dinosaur enthusiast, Justin Verrier, tweeted today that the Pelicans have signed former Duke standout Quinn Cook  to their training camp roster. The 6-2 combo guard was a co-captain on the 2014-15 Duke National Championship team, which included future first round draft picks Tyus Jones, Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow. Before his […]

  • In the NO Podcast Ep 260: Schedule, Olympics, Southwest Division Preview

    Nick and I get together to talk about the recently released schedule, the Olympic games and what little we can draw from it, and then we sink into the meat of the podcast: We talk about the teams in the Southwest Division, the changes they made, and predict record for each one. Well, except for […]

  • In the NO Podcast Ep. 258: Free Agency Wrap Up and Summer League

    Nick and Graham join me in a wrap up of everything that has happened so far in Free Agency. We talk Tyreke Evans, Hill, Moore, Frazier and Galloway. We say goodbye to Ryan Anderson, Luke Babbitt and Eric Gordon – and make predictions on wins, improvement defensively and losses offensively. And we talk summer league […]

  • Schrödinger’s NBA: Free Agent Contracts Under the New Cap

    Last night, Solomon Hill agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Pelicans for a reported 4 years and 48 million dollars with 2 million in “unlikely” incentives. The response to this news was mixed. From a pure basketball standpoint, most fans seemed to be pleased with the move. Hill fills a position of need, […]

  • In the NO Podcast Ep 257: Summer League and Free Agency

    Nick Lewellen and I continue the In The NO takeover while Ryan Schwan enjoys a European tour. We take a look at the Summer League roster before diving into offseason needs for the Pels. Lots of name-drops. I offer my thoughts on what the Pels’ should be looking for, Nick goes into finding value in […]

  • In the NO Podcast Ep 256: Buddy Hield!

    With Ryan Schwan out of the country for a few weeks, Graham McQueen and I decided to take over the podcast and discuss our the newest Pelican: Buddy Hield! We also get into how Buddy will effect the team’s efforts in free agency, what drafting Buddy means for players like Gordon and Tyreke, and we […]

  • In the NO Podcast Ep 255: Danny Ferry and the Draft

    Graham McQueen and Nick Lewellen join me to talk about Danny Ferry, Special Advisor, and want it means for Dell Demps and the team’s future moves. Then we move on to the draft, talk our preferred picks at 6, talk about things that would disappoint us, and if we like the idea of getting a […]

  • What Could the Pelicans be Waiting for with Dell Demps?

    The Pelicans caught some flack last week when reports surfaced that the team supported and would retain general manager Dell Demps. They caught even more flack when they seemed to backtrack this alleged commitment by canceling his end of season press conference without explanation. Of course, the cancellation could have been over nothing, but why […]

  • In the NO Podcast Ep. 253: Draft Fantasy

    Nick and I get together and run through what COULD happen if the Pelicans move up in the draft as part of the lottery. Because, you know, it could happen, right? We talk the top prospects, who the Pelicans could trade the 1st, 2nd or even 3rd picks for – and if we would make […]

  • Season in Review: Ryan Anderson is a Veteran

    Ryan Anderson originally came to New Orleans as one of Dell Demps’ “young veterans.” As you can probably recall, the idea was simple. Bring in a bunch of youngish guys that have a little professional playing experience. This was supposed to fast track the team’s success, while still keeping the Pelicans’ championship window relatively wide. […]

  • Pelican Scoop: NBA Comps for Simmons, Buddy, Ingram, and More

    The season is slowly, and mercifully, coming to an end. Several months ago, we all imagined Jrue, AD, and Tyreke hitting their stride in March and leading us into the playoffs in April. Instead, this team is staying competitive in games because of Luke Babbitt, Toney Douglas, Dante Cunningham, and Tim Frazier. With nearly every […]

  • Jrue Holiday: Minutes, Coming off the Bench, and Running with AD

    Earlier today, Justin Verrier, the new ESPN staff writer for the New Orleans Pelicans, released an article all about Jrue Holiday, his chemistry with Anthony Davis, and his recent performance. Not only did that dominate Hoops timelines, but Tom Haberstroh also featured the Pelicans and the magical pairing of Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday for his […]

  • The New Orleans Pelicans vs. The Oklahoma City Thunder

    The OKC Thunder are traveling south tonight to take on our Pelicans. The game will be on TNT so no Joel Meyers or David Wesley, which is sad, but I think AD will want to put up 60 in front of a national audience. That’ll be fun, right? Hey, we can always dream. Anyway, the […]

  • What is Left to Watch For?

    (Note: Graham McQueen was a big help on this and contributed a lot of valuable thoughts.)  The All Star break has come and gone. The trade deadline passed with a whimper. 55 regular season games have happened, and the Pelicans are 22-33. The playoffs are a long shot and quickly approaching impossible. Considering this offseason some […]

  • In the NO Podcast Ep 247: 59 and Trade Deadline wrap-up

    I’m joined by Nick Lewellen to talk about Anthony Davis’ 59 point monster and my frustration that it wasn’t more. We also talk about the Trade Deadline – the deals that were and weren’t made, Jrue Holiday’s strong play, Anthony Davis and the All NBA team, the standings, and whether stockpiling tons of draft picks […]

  • The Pelicans Take Down the Pistons at Home

    The Pelicans almost put together a complete game tonight against the Pistons. Really, the only thing missing was the 3 ball, but that was to be expected when Gordon went down for a few weeks. There was also a brief lull in the 3rd quarter, but they did finish the game as strong as they […]
