The Pelicans have offered Jeff Bzdelik a job as an assistant coach as the highly-regarded coach weighs his future.
Bzdelik, was the Rockets defensive coordinator, but recently parted ways with the team and is deciding what stop to make next in his career. The Pelicans are an exciting young team with even more future assets in their pocket and could use another respected veteran coach on the bench. Bzdelik is sure to get additional offers after he was able to turn the Rockets into a very good defensive team under Mike D’Antoni, who is a notoriously offensive-minded head coach. The Pelicans have one of the brightest futures ahead after selecting Zion Williamson first overall in June.
