Pelicans News for June 17, 2013

Some news for Monday:

- Per The Business Journals, the New Orleans Arena will soon be receiving a new video board:

Panasonic Eco Solutions North America announces that it will provide a new 360-degree LED video /ribbon display at New Orleans Arena. The new display will be approximately 924 feet long by 1.6 feet high and will be located in the center area between the seating levels. The installation project is expected to be completed by the end of July.

The high-definition display will be installed in the upper fascia of the arena and will be used to interact with and engage the audience through programming that will include local and national sponsor messages, audience participation features and game highlights. The system will be installed by a local contractor, Citadel Builders, L.L.C., the general contractor for the project. By integrating the display with the legacy control system, the LED boards can be synchronized with the existing displays in the arena for a richer fan experience.

- The Advocate's Ted Lewis writes about how Pelicans ownership is opting to play the long game with Monty Williams and Dell Demps.

- Also from the Advocate, it appears the Pelicans are continuing to scout in Europe despite Dario Saric's decision to drop out of the 2013 NBA Draft.

- Finally: I missed Jim Eichenhofer's recap of draft lottery day from a couple weeks ago, but it's a good read.
