New Orleans Pelicans Wants To Pair Zion Williamson With Star From Conference Rival

Jul 7, 2021

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - APRIL 21: Damian Lillard #0 talks with CJ McCollum #3 of the Portland Trail ... [+] Blazers during a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder during Round One Game Three of the 2019 NBA Playoffs on April 21, 2019 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and or using this photograph, User is consenting to the terms and conditions of the Getty Images License Agreement. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images) Getty Images The New Orleans Pelicans are trying to build a championship culture around Zion Williamson so they may contend for titles instead of watching their former players star in the NBA Finals. Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers) won a ring last year and either Chris Paul (Phoenix Suns) or Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee Bucks) will lift the trophy in the next few weeks. Having  scouted the Eastern Conference for two solid playoff-caliber rotational pieces , the Pelicans might try to attract a star from a Western Conference rival to chase their playoff goals. Paul and Kawhi Leonard are longshot free-agent options with injury histories that would cost north of $40 million. Luka Donicic is reportedly more appeased with the Dallas Mavericks hiring of Jason Kidd than Damian Lillard is with the Portland Trail Blazers hiring of Chauncey Billups. Lillard even took  to social media  to  interact with fans  questioning his loyalty to Portland and influence in hiring Billups. If the Pelicans want to chase an All-NBA talent, Lillard would elevate New Orleans to title contending expectations. New Orleans would have to empty the coffers but the front office could create a trade package that did not include Brandon Ingram ($29m) to fit Lillard’s $40 million contract. The $10-13 million gap (when considering trade kickers) in Lillard and Ingram’s contracts makes things interesting and complicated. A third team could be needed to cobble together a deal. Playing hardball with Ingram leads to more straightforward options but will cost much more in terms of draft capital. Eric Bledsoe ($18m) and Steven Adams ($17m) would have to depart along with the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft but coming out of this offseason with Zion Williamson, Ingram, and Lillard would quiet all doubters of the front office and quell most every rumor surrounding the team. If that trio is the end product, the means do not matter. Everything else is on the table. Portland has the leverage due to the remaining years on Lillard’s contract but these Trail Blazers have reached their ceiling. C. J. McCollum ($30m) might possibly be the best consolation prize for the Pelicans should they strike out on Lillard and he would not cost as much in terms of talent or draft assets. Dallas might also move on from their secondary star but Kristaps Porzingas will be owed $100 million over three years if he opts into his 2023-24 player option. New Orleans would have to be convinced Porzingas is an upgrade over all other interior options to make that commitment. Maxi Kleber fits more comfortably into a supporting role, comes at a third of the costs in salary, and still provides 40% from deep and 90% from the free-throw line. Looking at options from the last several conference champions, the Suns’ Cameron Payne, E’Twuan Moore, and Langston Galloway will be unrestricted free agents capable of coming in and providing experienced leadership in a supporting role. Dennis Schroder already turned down a four-year deal worth over $80 million from the Los Angeles Lakers  in hopes of getting $120 million  and a bigger role in an offense that would not be available in New Orleans. Alex Caruso is the only other affordable playoff-proven Laker of interest to New Orleans under 30 years old. Markieff Morris (31) would be an affordable depth option though that would mean less playing time for Jaxson Hayes. MORE FOR YOU The Golden State Warriors will want to make one more run with their aging championship core but also  need to shed salary. Andrew Wiggins ($29m) averaged 18.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in Golden State last season. He shot 38% from three-point range and would be under team control for two seasons. The former first pick in the draft still has promise and might be the cheapest option relative to potential return as the starting on the wing across from Brandon Ingram. There are reasons to like Kelly Oubre Jr., Tim Hardaway Jr., Reggie Jackson, DeMar DeRozen, and Mike Conley as unrestricted free agents but all come with their limitations. How New Orleans attacks the market depends on their in-house decisions concerning Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart. DeMarcus Cousins, Carmelo Anthony, Javale McGee, and Paul Millsaps are fallback plans with upside that would require cheap buy-out clauses. Christian Wood and Buddy Heild could be brought back to the city while leaving New Orleans the cap space and draft picks to make one more move before Williamson’s contract extension is on the books. New Orleans is in national headlines for all of the wrong reasons during the NBA Finals. Hiring a new coach will go a long way to changing the narratives around the team. There will be more looking forward and less looking back. The front office is under pressure to make a few moves but not necessarily the blockbuster of the offseason. They have done that the last two years running. The front office does not need Dame but they have to find one more playoff-caliber level starter to help Williamson and Ingram. New Orleans is a ready-made contender if they find the right fits for the Bi-Annual and Mid-level Exceptions to add a more coherent supporting cast around the current core. New Orleans could actually add Lillard or McCollum and not pay the luxury tax next season though it would take some maneuvering. Once Williamson’s maximum level contract extension kicks in though all bets are off. Ownership will have to pay the price of championship contention or start to lose the faith and trust of the players and fans. Part of avoiding the tax for one more season is finding affordable but efficient role players instead of building an admittedly “wonky” roster. This offseason is as much a test for the scouting department in New Orleans as it is for the contract negotiators. The track record so far (Bledsoe, Adams, Redick) has been as inconsistent as the team’s defense or coaching situation. Trading for a star like Lillard takes away all the guesswork and outside opinions. It would also announce the New Orleans Pelicans as a serious contender for the 2022 NBA Finals.
