The outlook, however, is a little more bleaker for starting small forward Quincy Pondexter. It’s looking like the Pelicans may have to wait until this upcoming November for Pondexter to fully recover from undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in May. ”Just one of those things that’s just takes time, he’s going to be OK,” Gentry said during a refurbished basketball court dedication ceremony on Friday involving the Pelicans and Chevron at Rev. Peter Atkins Park in Covington.

It has not been determined yet if Pondexter will be ready to participate in the Pelicans’ upcoming training camp that begins on Sept. 29 at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. ”I’m focusing on getting my body in the best shape possible right now,” Pondexter said. ”I’m hurt, but I’m looking forward to the season. I hope not to miss much time if any time at all. I’m looking forward to having a lot better season than I did last year.”

Sumerlin also spent time this summer in L.A. with Pelicans veterans such as Anthony Davis, Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon, Jrue Holiday and Quincy Pondexter. In a July conference call with Pelicans season ticket holders, Alvin Gentry said Evans has lost 12 pounds. “Tyreke has lost weight and is leaner,” Sumerlin said. “Eric looks great too and has gotten leaner. He has a strength coach (in California) who I am close with and has done a great job with Eric. Everyone is looking good and guys are excited about the season.”

Under the guidance of Anthony Davis and Quincy Pondexter, 10 Pelicans gathered in Los Angeles for voluntary workouts starting Monday, with the hopes of maximizing the team’s cohesion while cutting the learning curve that implementing a new coaching system typically entails. “Quincy and I had been talking about getting the team together and just reunite for a few days,” Davis said. “We made some calls, and a lot of guys jumped on board. It’ll be great to get back in the gym with the guys and get some work in before training camp rolls around in a few weeks.”
