The New Orleans Pelicans might be hoping to add a few picks in front of the current month’s draft. New Orleans as of now possesses the 13th general pick in the draft, and four picks overall, yet the chance of adding another pick seems to be enticing to the organization.
As indicated by The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Pelicans are transparently shopping Jrue Holiday. A few teams reportedly are interested, including the Denver Nuggets, who asked about Holiday’s accessibility lately.

The double-time All-Defensive team selection had a strong 2019-20 campaign for the Pelicans, averaging 19.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 6.7 helps while shooting 45.5% from the field and 35.3% from somewhere down in 61 starts.
Holiday is set to acquire $25.4 million during the forthcoming season and will at that point have the opportunity to exercise a $26.3 million player alternative in 2021-22 or test the market.
Behind Holiday, the Pelicans have JJ Redick, E’Twaun Moore, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, and Frank Jackson.
