Pelicans win in summer play, plan to talk with Oden

The New Orleans Pelicans won their final regular NBA Summer League game in Las Vegas Monday. They took on Cleveland, and beat the Cavs 66-62. 

Lance Thomas led the way with 14 points and 10 rebounds.  The League's playoffs begin Wednesday.

Meanwhile, League sources are confirming the Pelicans are planning to meet with center Greg Oden. He's the former overall number-one draft pick in 2007 by Portland.

When healthy, Oden can be a beast. Problem is, he has rarely been healthy. He played only 82 career games before being released by the Blazers. That followed five knee surgeries of the micro-fracture variety.

Oden will also reportedly talk with Dallas and Sacramento. The Heat and Spurs are also interested in the unrestricted free agent.

    Throughout the summer and into training camp Ed Orgeron said if the season started today, Danny Etling would be his starting quarterback. Tuesday night, Coach O went a step further naming Etling the starter against BYU. “Sunday, we watched all of the tape, and we made the decision to announce Danny as our starting quarterback.

    A presser hasn't gone by without LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron talking up true freshman Myles Brennan. The St. Stanislaus alum is turning heads with his rocket arm, and accuracy with wide receivers. Offensive coordinator Matt Canada also is a big fan of Brennan, and thinks things will only get better for the backup as the 2017 season progresses. "Myles has gotten better every week. We had a half-scrimmage that first week, really got after it the second week. First time in Tiger Stad...more>>

    The Saints have hit the halfway mark of the preseason, and the final 53 man roster is getting clearer. Here's my view at this point in time.  QB (2) Drew Brees Chase Daniel There is no reason for the Saints to keep more than two quarterbacks. It’s obvious who those quarterbacks should be. RB (4) Mark Ingram Adrian Peterson Alvin Kamara Daniel Lasco No change here. FB (1) John Kuhn Once again, easy call. WR (5)  Willie Snead Michael Thomas Ted G...more>>
