New Orleans

They seem to be falling rapidly out of playoff picture, what do you think they should do?

I'm trying to use Randle, pick(s) + expiring to bring in a Bradley Beal type if I can't achieve this I'm probably opening the market on both Davis & Holiday to look towards rebuilding.

Beal is great, but there are

Beal is great, but there are plenty of other teams that want him and I am not sure Pelicans have what it takes to trade for him.

Regarding Davis, they have zero reasons to open trade offers for him.

-For starters Boston has ton of assets to get him but they can't make an offer till July, so why open the market when one of your best potential partners is out of it?!

-Davis is great player, they are never going to get value for him, they can still build a team for playoff with him, they can still fill seats with him. They can offer him more than anyone else in the league, so they should make that offer and if accepts it is their best option, because teams aren't about "contender or tank" as most people loves to put it

I guess the big thing is

I guess the big thing is Davis saying his legacy is more important than the money!

Was unaware of the Boston situation, so I can see why you'd wait in that instance.

What kind of "playoff" moves do you think they could make? They look God dam awful lately and you can't afford to lose too many games out West or kiss your playoffs goodbye, they are getting very close. My team could have a star like Davis, but if we losing I ain't turning up, I personally would rather see a young team growing if we losing - not a somewhat finished product that can't win.

The biggest reason they’re

The biggest reason they’re struggling is injuries, people forget they started the season 4-0. The addition of Payton and Mirotic will help a lot. The just need help at the wing and they should be alright she no they’re healthy.

This team is an absolute

This team is an absolute mess, AD needs to get out and they need to trade him to generate some picks and some depth. No they won’t get value to what he’s worth but they are rubbish, their best 3 players play the same position and outside of Jrue Holiday not one other player would be a lock to get minutes on any other team in the league.

They aren't in the best shape

They aren't in the best shape but pretty much every team in the West is in the playoff picture and virtually all of them would be capable of winning a series (except probably Minny, Dallas and Sacramento for mine). The Pels need to make a smart move or two. Firing Dell Demps would be a good start.

If I'm AD I'm leaving. They

If I'm AD I'm leaving. They haven't shown to be able to build a contender, let alone a consistent playoff team. The FO has made questionable move after questionable move (Hield trade, Asik, Solomon Hill, etc) during the time they should be maximizing AD talents. They've been plugging in D-League guys to surround him instead of building a proper team. Is the front office that cheap?

SF has been a gaping, festering hole for almost 8 years, and they just cant seem to get the right mix of players (or coaches) to make the team complete. This year was probably the most talented Pelicans roster AD has had, and his greatness still cant get them to seperate from the pack of 8-11 seed teams.
