Pelicans' Solomon Hill: Could see some time at power forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pelicans GM Dell Demps said Friday that Hill could see some time at power forward during the upcoming season, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

After inking a four-year, $50 million deal with the Pelicans on the first day of free agency, Hill is the leading contender to start at small forward, but with the team having Lance Stephenson, Dante Cunningham and Alonzo Gee on hand as depth at the position, Hill may see additional usage in the frontcourt. Any time he gets at power forward would likely be minimal, however, as All-Star Anthony Davis is the starter at that spot, while Terrence Jones looks to be first in line for minutes behind him.

Pelicans' Quincy Pondexter: Pushes back return date
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pondexter (knee) will be targeting a return in November, although general manager Dell Demps believes that a return in December or January is more realistic, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.

It was initially expected for Pondexter to be ready at the start of training camp, especially since he's been participating in offseason workouts, but the Pelicans recently decided to prolong his rehabilitation process. The 28-year-old hasn't played in a game since the 2014-15 season and there's even a lingering fear that he may never actually return at all after undergoing two major surgeries on his left knee during that long absence from the court.

Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Finds blood clot in calf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans discovered a blood clot in his calf after undergoing surgery on his knee earlier this offseason, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.

Evans was already expected to miss the first portion of the season, but things have become even more complicated with a blood clot involved. It's hard not to make a comparison to Chris Bosh's ongoing blood clot issues in his calf that have stunted his career, but it's still unclear at the moment if the same severity applies to Evans and his situation. Either way, a return date for Evans is unclear.

Pelicans' He Tianju: Gets camp invite from New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tianju agreed Thursday to a training camp deal with the Pelicans, Justin Verrier of reports.

Tianju, a 6-foot-9 forward, suited up for the Chinese Basketball Association's Liaoning Flying Leopards last season, averaging 12.2 points and 3.9 boards in 32.1 minutes per game. As a member of the Pelicans' summer league roster in 2015, he has some familiarity with the organization, but he doesn't have a realistic chance of winning a roster spot. Look for him to head back to the CBA once camp concludes.
