Folks in New Orleans are naturally getting excited about Zion Williamson's imminent arrival and ticket sales have shot up by 4,000. has a piece up on how things are coming together with David Griffith signing on and hiring Trajan Langdon as GM, then pairing Zion Williamson and Jrue Holiday.

Hey Pelicans, here’s a free slogan: “With Zion and Jrue, EVERY game is a Holiday.”

The article alludes to something a lot of people miss: “Williamson doesn’t just excite fans. He excites fellow players, front office talent and corporate sponsors...Williamson is not your average NBA teenager. He’s wise beyond his years. His maturity both on and off the court gives the Pelicans a chance to win immediately.”

If the rumored deal with Boston goes through and Jayson Tatum joins former Blue Devils Langdon, Williamson, Jahlil Okafor and Frank Jackson in the Big Easy, we’re really curious to see what effect Williamson has on Tatum. That would be a lot of fun to watch.
