New Orleans Pelicans Fire Dell Demps Over Anthony Davis Trade Circus

Looks like the New Orleans Pelicans are headed towards a murky future because the organization has fired GM Dell Demps today. Apparently, the decision came after Anthony Davis left yesterday’s game with a shoulder contusion, as management was angry it happened in the first place. Throughout the course of the past few weeks, the Pelicans were in the middle of NBA conversation, with trade deals becoming very public and making their franchise unstable.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, owner Gayle Benson wants a complete overhaul of the team and wants to find a GM that will continue trade talks for AD.

At the moment, they are looking at internal candidates like David Booth and Danny Ferry, but aren’t opposed to hiring a high level executive to take over for Demps.

The franchise will still be pushing back on the Davis preferred trade destinations if they don’t make sense for the Pelicans, but there will be no rush on it with him under contract for another year.
