| Pelicans Talk|| Zach Lowe Western Conference Power Rankings - corndeaux on 12/23/14 at 11:47 am|
Pellies come in 10th.
[quote]This is the one team among this group that cannot give up the dream of a playoff berth. The Pellies have dealt away three consecutive first-round picks to chase the no. 8 seed, and too many jobs are at stake across the organization to cut bait now.

| Pelicans Talk|| Zach Lowe Article on Asik Trade - corndeaux on 6/26/14 at 2:05 pm|
[quote]Asik is a massive upgrade, a legit rim protector with good footwork against the pick-and-roll. He’s about to turn 28, so he fits the Demps model of acquiring young or mid-career veterans. Williams had New Orleans blitzing the pick-and-roll far from the basket last season, but he really prefer...
