Steven Adams gives Pelicans the defensive wall they need

Steven Adams will give Pelicans the ‘freaking’ defensive wall they need

Two highly-respected basketball writers in the U.S. tweeted on Saturday (NZ time) that Adams was being discussed as a multi-way trade piece which seems set to end his seven-year stay with the Thunder, who drafted the New Zealander in 2013.

The first-round pick heading to OKC is the lottery-protected 2023 selection belonging to the Denver Nuggets that was sent to New Orleans on draft night in a trade for RJ Hampton, according to Wojnarowski.

The Thunder will receive Charlotte's 2023 second round pick and Washingotn's 2024 second round pick.

The Thunder, with Paul George and Russell Westbrook, a year ago became the first team in NBA history to trade two reigning All-NBA players in the same summer. It just didn't have anything to do with signing free agents.

When finalised, Adams' departure from Oklahoma City would see him exit in 10th all-time in games played for the franchise, second in offensive rebounds, seventh in total rebounds, fifth in blocks and first in field goal percentage.

A video shared by sports reporter Dylan Buckingham showed what playing in Oklahoma, one of the smallest markets in the National Basketball Association, means to the Kiwi while other media members added their takes on the planned move.

Kiwi centre Steven Adams may be taking his talents to The Big Easy.

In addition, the Pelicans would have returned the 60th pick in the 2020 draft, which was acquired in 2019 for Nikola Mirotic, to Milwaukee.
