Highlight: Pelicans’ Anthony Davis makes Wizards’ Marcin Gortat, Otto Porter look very small

Many know by now that New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis is arguably the biggest rising star in the NBA or certainly well on his way to being.

New Orleans Pelicans: Tyreke Evans to Start at Small Forward

New Orleans Pelicans wing Tyreke Evans has all the traits of being a really good sixth man.

Pelicans Injury Update: Jrue Holiday expects to be limited during early training camp days

New Orleans Pelicans star point guard Jrue Holiday is expecting that his minutes will be limited out the gate once training camp starts. Although this means that Holiday is likely not fully recovered just yet, it also means that he’s is back, which is great news for the NBA.
