As for the Pelicans, I love this deal for them. They finally get Anthony Davis the help he’s been so desperate for. That said, as crazy as a frontcourt of Davis and Cousins might be, there’s still no guarantee that’s going to work.

But if you’re the Pelicans, you have to take that shot. Have to!

Especially, since they really didn’t give up jack to get him. Especially since a talent like this, in his prime is rarely available. Absolutely it’s a gamble. He may not fit with Davis. And his act may not be any better there than it was in Sacramento. And you may end up losing him in a year. But despite all that, it’s still worth it.

It’s not a question of can they afford to take that shot, fact is, they can’t afford not to. And if you get a chance to get a guy like without giving up anything at all, it’s a no-brainer. I love the deal for New Orleans.
