In 2012 the Hornets drafted Anthony Davis with the first overall selection in the draft, and since then have been building a solid team around him. They are currently three games out of a playoff spot, but should make the playoffs next season easily. This is a team on the rise. That’s why you might need to check our selection of Pelicans basketball tickets
The New Orleans Pelicans are the NBA's second newest team, having been founded in 2002 after moving from Charlotte. The New Orleans Pelicans were actually originally known as the New Orleans Hornets, before changing the name to Pelicans in 2013. After spending their first three seasons in New Orleans after moving, the Hornets were forced to temporarily relocate to Oklahoma City for the 2005 season following Hurricane Katrina. They spent two seasons in Oklahoma City before returning to New Orleans in 2007. Since their inception, the Pelicans have had very little success. Years of Chris Paul as their point guard only resulted in one division title, 2007. The Pelicans have never won the NBA Championship or their conference.
The New Orleans Pelicans had a tough but expected 2015-2016 season. They finished the season with a record of 30-52, good for the fourth-worst record in the Western Conference. This offseason, their priority was clear, continue to add pieces to go with franchise superstar Anthony Davis. They held the sixth selection in the draft, and used to take sharpshooter Buddy Hield from Oklahoma. So far this season, they are off to another poor start, currently standing with a record of 20-32, tied for the fourth-worst record in the Western Conference with the Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings. The same question that is asked about the Wolves, must be asked about the Pelicans. Is this a talented team that is just not going to fit together in the long haul?
