The Pelicans have announced they will be adding a G League affiliate in Birmingham, Alabama.
The stadium in Birmingham still needs renovations so the team will play in Erie, PA next season. The Pelicans are off to a strong 3-0 start this season after an excellent playoff run last season. They have a superstar in Anthony Davis and an All-Star level player in Jrue Holiday. There were talks that Davis would ask for a trade from the Pelicans after multiple unsuccessful seasons early on, but their recent success suggests he might be convinced to stay for a while. Things are looking up in NO.
