The Pelicans will look for a small forward, but they’re not trading Ryan Anderson for some run-of-the-mill wing player — especially with Quincy Pondexter giving them solid minutes. The Clips and Heat will try to turn nothing into something. The Hawks have freaking $4.9 million in cap room, which seems unfair. They could sign a free agent or absorb extra salary in a lopsided trade. Grantland

Pondexter also has changed, from a 22-year-old first-round pick fresh out of college to a fifth-year veteran with over 200 games of NBA experience, including 25 playoff games. That ranks him fourth on the Pelicans for most postseason experience, behind only Omer Asik (33 games) and John Salmons (28). “I’ve grown up a lot. I’ve matured,” Pondexter said. “On this team I’ll probably be more of a veteran than most of the guys. I’ve seen what it takes to win games. I’ve went to the Western Conference finals. I’ve been to the playoffs every year since. Memphis taught me a lot. It was truly a blessing. Hopefully I can bring those winning ways to New Orleans.” NBA.com
