Center Steven Adams has been traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. Along with Adams, Eric Bledsoe and the 10th overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft will follow, while the Grizzlies will send Jonas Valanciunas and the 2021 17th selection back in return. However, the deal won't become official until August 6, the first day of free agency. Adams is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career, finishing the 2020-21 campaign by averaging 8.9 boards and 7.6 points in addition to battling a foot injury that relegated the big man to only 58 games. The 28-year-old will have competition for minutes with the Grizzlies. However, he has streaming appeal if given a more substantial role sometime throughout the year.
New Orleans Pelicans center Steven Adams could be on the trade block ahead of the 2021-22 campaign. The veteran, who has a few years remaining on his current deal, may be packaged along with a draft pick to open up cap space on the Pels' roster. Adams had a considerable drop in production last season and also battled a toe issue that relegated him to only 58 games. However, the 27-year-old still has some gas left in the tank and may see a rise in his statistical output if he gets a more prominent role with a new club.
New Orleans Pelicans small forward Brandon Ingram (ankle), point guard Lonzo Ball (thumb) and center Steven Adams (toe) have all been deemed unavailable for Sunday's contest versus the Lakers, ending their season. Ingram wraps up the year having averaged 23.8 PPG for the second consecutive campaign, while Ball set a career-best with 14.6 PPG and 3.1 made triples on a nightly basis. Ingram and Adams stand to remain cornerstones of the Pelicans' rotation next season, but Ball is set for a unique free agency that could command a top-tier contract. Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Naji Marshall, Jaxson Hayes and Willy Hernangomez all stand to see elevated workloads Sunday, while Eric Bledsoe figures to have the highest offensive upside.
New Orleans Pelicans center Steven Adams (toe) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Golden State Warriors. He has missed three straight games and the Pelicans have no incentive to play Adams at less than 100 percent. It would be fairly surprising to see the veteran center actually on the court for this game. James Johnson should remain a solid streaming option throughout the rest of the regular season.
