Pelicans’ Kira Lewis a trade candidate?

Scotto: Kira Lewis is a name to keep an eye on for the Pelicans, who could trade Lewis and add a player on the veteran minimum for the upcoming season while avoiding the luxury tax. The team waived Garrett Temple, and they’d be among the teams expected to have interest in forward Rudy Gay, as I previously reported on HoopsHype. I touched recently on PJ Tucker being a trade candidate because of the James Harden trade talks and his involvement in them.

More on this storyline

Kira Lewis Jr. appears to have replaced big man Jonas Valančiūnas as the most likely Pelican to be dealt as New Orleans looks to move beneath the luxury tax. The Pelicans have explored various trades involving Valančiūnas’ expiring $15.4 million contract while also searching for a potential new center — including an unsuccessful run at Cleveland’s Jarrett Allen — but Lewis (carrying a $5.7 million salary for next season) is coming up more often now. -via / July 7, 2023
