Here’s some good news: Zion Williamson will be ready for opening night, something that the New Orleans Pelicans were no doubt happy to hear.
The team made a surprising run to the playoffs where they pushed Phoenix hard before bowing out.
In Williamson’s absence last year, fellow former Blue Devil Brandon Ingram emerged as a star but there have been plenty of changes since Williamson was forced to the sidelines. Steven Adams is gone. JJ Redick is gone. Nickeil Alexander-Walker is gone. Josh Hart is gone. Lonzo Ball is gone.
And now the Pelicans have CJ McCollum, Devonte Graham, Jose Alvarado, Larry Nance, Jr., Herbert Jones and Trey Murphy.
