Jamal Murray was in New Orleans earlier this week to meet with the Pelicans about potentially joining the squad after the upcoming NBA draft. He was spotted at Peche Seafood Grill on Tuesday, having dinner with Pels head coach Alvin Gentry and the organization’s GM, Dale Demps.
New Orleans has the sixth overall pick in the draft and Murray is a very strong possibility at that spot, if he falls past Boston, Phoenix and Minnesota. Jaylen Brown is also reportedly in the mix to fill the team’s need on the wing.
Brett Dawson, formerly of the Kentucky beat, tweeted Brown will be in New Orleans tomorrow. Murray and Brown are the only two prospects to make the trip to the N.O. so far, according to Dawson.
You like the idea of A.D. and Murray on the same team? Of course you do. Stupid question.
