The upcoming NBA season is more than three months away, but several coaches and players around the league are already potentially bracing for a more difficult challenge when they face the New Orleans Pelicans.
Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers says the Pelicans are definitely better now after acquiring All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday in a blockbuster draft night trade last month from the Philadelphia 76ers.
“They’re definitely better,’’ Rivers said during Friday’s NBA summer league after watching his son, Austin Rivers, lead the Pelicans with 24 points in their 77-72 victory against the Knicks. “They added a lot and getting that kid (Holiday) from Philadelphia to me is just a really good move. He’s only 23 and he’s already an All-Star. I think he’ll be great for that team.’’
