Well look at this, the national media has finally had enough of Zion Williamson's nonsense. Today former Pelican and teammate of Williamson, JJ Redick called him out over his unprofessionalism shown this season on ESPN's First Take.
The Pelicans haven't had a non-draft acquisition this big since the Boogie Cousins trade. I wouldn't count the Anthony Davis trade because that was something that had to happen. With Boogie and now CJ, these trades were a shock when they happened. This trade is huge for the Pelicans for multiple reasons.
Jones is on the brink of joining elite company this season in New Orleans. After playing his way into a starting role and averaging almost 30 minutes per game as a rookie, he has made quite the name for himself on the stat sheet.
It was reported today that Zion Williamson suffered another setback. After experiencing consistent soreness, it was revealed that the bone in his foot began regressing and wasn't healing like it was supposed to. So in turn, they began to decrease his workload so his foot can heal correctly.
Things just keep getting worse for the New Orleans Pelicans as the team announced today that guard Kira Lewis Jr. will be out indefinitely after suffering a torn ACL and a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his right knee.
