New Orleans likely to offer DeMarcus Cousins much less than max contract

Pelicans to bring back coach Gentry

The New Orleans Pelicans have voided around 2,500 pre-sale tickets after a code for full season ticket holders was shared with the general public. The series victory not only was New Orleans' first since 2008, but only the second since the National Basketball Association returned 16 seasons ago to the city where the Pete Maravich-led Jazz originally played from 1974-79, before moving to Utah. The win marked the first time in National Basketball Association history that a team seeded sixth or lower swept a first-round series in the modern best-of-seven format, which replaced best-of-five series in 2003.

The Warriors and the Pelicans will match up in the second round, with Game 1 coming on Saturday (April 28) at Oracle Arena.

For everything Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday and everyone on this Pelicans roster have accomplished so far this postseason, credit must also be given to head coach Alvin Gentry and his staff.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Pelicans say they've voided around 2,500 playoff tickets that were purchased improperly during a pre-sale event for the second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs. Thus, New Orleans has all the leverage. Along with his career high in points, Davis averaged 12 rebounds, three blocks and shot 57 percent from the field.

New Orleans hardly looked like a playoff lock in the highly competitive Western Conference after Cousins was injured.

But how did the Pelicans improve after losing a two-time Second-Team All NBA player? But it's obvious they're hesitant to tie up so much money with someone who may come back as an entirely different player. "I congratulate him. You've got to give credit where it's due". So it seems obvious they'd just let him leave, and instead re-sign Mirotic.

Lowe speculated that a three-year deal could be the most likely deal for Cousins, though it depends on who's bidding.

Moreover, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski reported last month that the Lakers are planning to move their focus from this summer's free agency to next year's if they are unable to get James or George in the upcoming offseason.
