Pelicans reportedly open to trading No. 4 pick in draft

The New Orleans Pelicans may not be done making big trades.

News broke on Saturday that the Pelicans and Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a trade that will send Anthony Davis to to the Lakers for Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and three first-round picks. One of those picks includes the No. 4 overall pick in this year’s draft, which the Pelicans are reportedly open to dealing.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says the Pelicans are already receiving interest from teams looking to trade up for the No. 4 pick.

LA Times Lakers reporter Brad Turner adds that the Pelicans are looking into trading that pick.

New Orleans already has the No. 1 overall pick and is expected to take Zion Williamson. The Grizzlies are expected to take Ja Morant with the No. 2 pick, and there is some belief the Knicks will take RJ Barrett third. That would leave the team picking fourth with the option of anyone else who is available — guys like Darius Garland, Jarrett Culver, and De’Andre Hunter, to name a few.

New Orleans is in a good spot to rebuild their team even after losing Davis.
