The next New Orleans Pelicans’ coach will affect the roster and status of Jrue Holiday.

When the New Orleans Pelicans fired Alvin Gentry it was still summer and the NBA playoffs were just about to begin.

By the time the next Pelicans’ coach is hired, we will be well into Fall with the NBA Draft just weeks away.

The Pels still haven’t tipped their hand about who the next coach will be but it appears they are deciding between a first-time head coach like Jamahl Mosley or Will Weaver or a more experienced guy like Stan Van Gundy.
