They're a great young team, but they're missing some pieces. They'll be a top 4 team in the West in five years, but they'll be nothing special for a while.
If they trade Eric Gordon for Danny Granger, the Pelicans can move Tyreke to the 2 spot. Their starters would be Jrue Holiday, Tyreke Evans, Danny Granger, Anthony Davis, and Jeff Withey/Greg Stiesma. Pacers' starters would be George Hill, Eric Gordon, Paul George, David West, and Roy Hibbert (although I don't think Paul George and Gordon will gel together).
That would improve the Pelicans' starters. I think they're still a ways from title contention. If they traded Ryan Anderson to the Houston Rockets for Omer Asik, the Pelicans would be set as for the starters, and Anderson would add a shooting touch for Houston.
I'm just throwing crap against the wall but thought it would be fun, what do you all think?
