The New Orleans Pelicans engaged in trade discussions with the Atlanta Hawks for Dejounte Murray and Trae Young before the trade deadline, and these talks are anticipated to continue this summer.

While the Pelicans are interested in both point guards, sources suggest they favor a deal for Murray due to his more team-friendly contract and superior defensive skills compared to Young.

Additionally, there have been suggestions that New Orleans star Zion Williamson would like to team up with Young, a sentiment echoed by Young’s father on social media.
