Pelicans Open New Practice Facility
From a spacious locker room that includes a barber’s chair to a film room featuring stadium-styled seating, the New Orleans Pelicans showed on Tuesday why they think they have one of the finest new practice facilities in the NBA.
They celebrated by conducting a tour of the state-of-the-art 50,000-square-foot facility at the Saints’ complex in Metairie that had Pelicans general manager Dell Demps marveling at all the new amenities.
Players have been getting acclimated to their new surroundings for the past two weeks with volunteer workouts. The Pelicans will open training camp at the facility on Oct. 1.
