The Pelicans looked good tonight. If they can somehow clear some space to add a Paul George type wing, they become a top 5 team.

I don't know why New Orleans would look to trade him. I don't think they get even value in any viable trade for him.

A one game sample they may look alright. Other nights they look awful. The inconsistency is an indicator of a poorly built and poorly coached basketball team.

As for acquiring a top wing and getting better; Davis is on a max, Cousins will be on a max, and Jrue Holiday is on a max until 2021.

Unless by some miracle of god they can offload Jrue Holiday somewhere, they cannot add more superstars to that roster. Best of luck with that endeavour. Probably the worst contract in the league.

They won't trade him unless he demands a trade.  He doesn't seem like the type, but who knows -- that's par for course these days.

I think he will stay, unless Pelician doesn't want to pay him the supermax contract.

Heíll probably be the new KG. Stuck on a team that will never win anything of note. Another small market holding on to a star as long as possible. Once they lose in the first round the pressure will only build though. Go green AD 🍀 Convince me the Cís couldnít win a ring with this lineup:

Kyrie
Smart
Hayward
Tatum
Davis

They will wait until the last minute and trade him if he requests a trade or will let his contract expire. Then they will blame him after he leaves.

I want to believe too.....

I don't think Horford + Brown + filler gets it done. Add in Bagley/Ayton and I think you have a deal.

New Orleans would be crazy to ever trade him. He should stay.

As much as I love his game, I agree.

I'd dread how much we'd have to give up to get him.

I think I agree with your KG comparison.  I like Davis a lot but I'm really not sure he'd improve our chances...especially considering what we'd have to give up.  We just might become the Boston Pelicans.  If he played every game like he played last night - hell yes.  But, he doesn't.

New Orleans is in such cap hell, there only real shot is to trade bad contracts for better fitting bad contracts.  Something like Asik and Allen for Smith and Rose might make sense for both teams.  Cavs add a wing defender in Allen, save some money, but get stuck with Asik (though he is signed for less than Smith).  Pelicans get a shot a resurrecting Smith (and they badly need a wing) and maybe see if Rose has anything left.

Terrible cap, terrible coach, terrible management, terrible roster construction.

I love Davis + DMC + Jrue, but you need more than that.
