New Orleans Pelicans are expected to shake things up in the upcoming offseason after their disappointing finish the last season.
According to William Guillory and Sam Vecenie of The Athletic, New Orleans will seek to offload either Eric Bledsoe or Steven Adams in order to add more depth to its roster.
“Eric Bledsoe and Steven Adams are two veterans who were brought in to fill in the holes as essential role players last season, and they both ended up having fairly disappointing seasons,” wrote William Guillory and Sam Vecenie of The Athletic.
“Sources say there’s an expectation that at least one of them will be on the move this offseason, with hopes of adding more depth to the roster. It’s unclear how much New Orleans would be willing to give up to make sure a trade happens involving either one of them.
As tough as it may be to move some of these pieces around, I would be completely floored if the Pels try to roll out the same starting five next season.”
During the 2020-21 season, Bledsoe averaged 12.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, while Adams put up 7.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists.
