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.

So it seems obvious they'd just let him leave, and instead re-sign Mirotic.
