METAIRIE, La. (AP) Pelicans general manager Dell Demps has a vision of a prolonged Boogie-and-Brow era fostering basketball boom times in the Big Easy.
"We really set ourselves up for the future," Demps said Thursday, referring to a February trade that paired DeMarcus Cousins with fellow front-court All-Star Anthony Davis. "I think DeMarcus is going to be an impact player here for a long time. And I think that him and Anthony paired together - it took a little time, but I think we started to see some of the potential."
Whether Demps and the coach he hired two seasons ago, Alvin Gentry, are around to see how it turns out is another matter.
