Pelicans execs say NBA club on the right path

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Pelicans think they are on the right path to NBA success, despite finishing 27-55.

In their season review on Monday, executive vice president Mickey Loomis, general manager Dell Demps and coach Monty Williams all pointed to pluses at the end of the first year under new owner Tom Benson.

Loomis says the Pelicans are "not satisfied with the 27-win season, but we saw a lot of positive things from this team, things that we needed to see in year 1 of building a championship caliber team."

New Orleans has changed its nickname to Pelicans, but Demps is non-committal about what changes they plan for the second-youngest roster in the NBA. That starts with leading scorer Eric Gordon, who may or may not be traded.
