Pelicans Reportedly Not Shopping Ryan Anderson

While the New Orleans Pelicans are “actively exploring trade options” and talking with other teams, they aren’t shopping power forward Ryan Anderson, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

There have been reports out there saying the Pelicans have put Anderson on the trade market, but Stein says the team is merely listening to pitches from other teams.

New Orleans has gotten off to a disappointing 6-18 start, so making a move or multiple moves wouldn’t be a surprise. Anderson is set to be a free agent this summer, making him a natural candidate to be traded unless the Pelicans are adamant about signing him to a new long-term deal.

But even if New Orleans wants to deal Anderson, there’s no reason to panic and do a deal as quickly as possible. There’s plenty of time to assess the trade market and gauge what he may be able to fetch, and it sounds like that’s exactly what the Pelicans are doing.
