From Windhorst's podcast today:


I was in France this last week to spend some time with Victor Wembenyama. Jonathan Givonny and I spent several days talking to all kinds of people around Victor Wembenyama, Victor himself several times, we'll be having stories and stuff come out about that later. The Pelicans had personnel in France and they spent some time talking to Victor's people. In fact, Victor's people, I don't now how often the Pelicans have been there, but they sought it out.

Overall positive Pels talk starts around the 37 minute mark LINK

Obviously this doesn't mean much, but it is something fun to focus on while the season hits a bit of a lul.

Especially with the new TV deal and CBA coming up I could see the league rigging the lottery and putting two of the better teams at #1 and #2, just to give the middle finger to the tanking teams and further dissuade tanking.

Imagine Wemby in Toronto and Scoot in NOLA (I’d prefer Scoot over Wemby for this team, may get called stupid for it but my preference)

I wonder if we landed the 3rd or 4th pick… if there’s a package that we could put together with our picks and pieces to get number 1 or 2…

Or if that’s simply out of the question and no one is giving up those spots

99% chance it’ll be out of the question. The talent gap between those top 2 guys and everyone else is too big

The talk would start with Zion and some firsts. The way the NBA values potential in the draft is very strange to me. No team is going to pay what it takes to make someone give up a prospect like Wemby.

Trajan is big on scouting overseas prospects. The fact that Wemby is the largest overseas prospect, it seems to make sense that the Pelicans would make contact.

Due diligence coupled with the palpable fear coming out of Los Angeles. I’m still optimistic that their season can reach even greater lows before it’s all said and done.

Trading to secure his rights will not be how Wemby makes it to New Orleans.
