Holiday is commonly viewed as a player who would fit perfectly with Kevin Durant and Jrue Holiday due to his ability to play off the ball and his ability on defense while matching Brooklyn’s timeline of contention. “That certainly is something that’s been out there and I think it has been reported. If it hasn’t been reported, I found out somewhere, I don’t think it was from an executive, maybe it was, there was some discussions between the Nets and Pelicans in February.”

Van Gundy’s reputation as a teacher of the game in 11-plus seasons with the Miami Heat, Orlando Magic and Detroit Pistons has made him a formidable candidate for a young Pelicans roster. The Pelicans — 30-42 and 13th in the Western Conference last season — have a young core that includes Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram, as well as veterans Jrue Holiday and JJ Redick. The Pelicans are expected to be a team capable of making significant progress in the standings in the next few years.
Redick next gushes about the city of New Orleans and Jrue Holiday, in particular. “New Orleans is a special place, man. It’s one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been in this country. It’s so unique. The people there are insanely nice and insanely great. And I think that was eye-opening for me. “My two biggest takeaways from my year in New Orleans were: thank God I got to experience New Orleans and what a special place it was, and thank God I get to be friends with Jrue Holiday…He’s just an incredible human.”
