Playing the Pelicans the other day made me think about how bad of a spot they are in. They are in the lottery again with no pick and are stuck in no man's land with no cap room due to Gordon's contract. So I began to wonder if they would do an Aldridge and Batum trade for Davis and Gordon. In the above trade Gordon is sent to NY so that we can get the largest expiring contract possible and have cap room for a large max level deal for an upgrade in the starting lineup. I think NO would be crazy for trading Davis but I also think trading two lottery picks for a fringe east all star is also crazy so you never know.
