New Orleans Pelicans exercise Alvin Gentry's contract for next season

However, it is quite obvious that Golden State will be large favorites over the surging Pelicans.
As the 6-seed, the Pelicans were not favored against the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round. We know what Davis is capable of; one of the questions was if Jrue Holiday would show up. Those last two teams might be willing to pay Cousins a bit more than teams like the Pelicans. How does New Orleans handle the size from Golden State on the wing with their smallish backcourt?
New Orleans missed the playoffs during Gentry's first two seasons, during which the team was hampered by a combination of key injuries or other matters that caused extended absences of key personnel. It was the first playoff sweep in the franchise's 16-year history. Pelicans power forward Nikola Mirotic averaged 18 points and 9.2 boards per game to help the cause.
Game 1 happens Saturday, April 28th at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. The risk of acquiring a post-injury Cousins is said to be too much for the club unless the four-time NBA All-Star's "price drops low enough". It seems to be less coach-to-player and more of a partnership with a profound mutual respect.
This season, not only have New Orleans managed to qualify for the playoffs, but they have also managed to advance to the second round of the postseason for the first time since their rebranding to the Pelicans from the Hornets. With tough matchups, great ball movement and momentum, New Orleans can play the Warriors close.
Gentry, 63, led the Pelicans to a 48-34 regular season and a sixth seed in the Western Conference before a 4-0 series victory over Portland in the first round of the playoffs.
Even without Curry, the answer is most likely no. I think so I think this round they're still gonna do that as well. Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka was one of the witnesses to Kobe's injury-riddled final years in the league, and is said to be more than capable of deciding whether or not it is best for the team to go after Cousins this summer. Nick Young, David West, and Quinn Cook have all performed well this season. He shot 57 percent from the field and averaged seven assists. The Warriors aren't going to take the Pelicans lightly. Join the Pelican Debrief team! Even though the talent, playoff experience and coaching favors Golden State, the Warriors are very aware that this is not the same New Orleans team they faced in the 2015 playoffs.
