Steven Adams heading to the New Orleans Pelicans in multiple team trade

Steven Adams heading to the New Orleans Pelicans in multiple team trade”

While the full terms of the deal have not been reported, it's clear that Adams will no longer be on the Thunder.

According to multiple reports, New Orleans is finalizing a deal to acquire longtime Thunder center Steven Adams.

In return for Adams, the Thunder are set to receive a 2023 first-round pick.

Two highly-respected basketball writers in the United States tweeted on Saturday (NZ time) that Adams was being discussed as a multi-way trade piece which seems set to end his seven-year stay with the Thunder, who drafted the New Zealander in 2013.

The original trade, reported Monday, had Holiday joining the Bucks in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, George Hill, three first-round picks, and two future first-round pick swaps.

Adams has spent his entire National Basketball Association career with the Thunder since he was drafted in 2013, playing 530 regular season and 59 playoff games, but with the Thunder rebuilding their roster for the future with an emphasis on collecting draft picks, Adams - and his US$27.5 million contract for the upcoming 2020-21 season - has become less valuable.

In addition, the Pelicans would have returned the 60th pick in the 2020 draft, which was acquired in 2019 for Nikola Mirotic, to Milwaukee. GM Sam Presti has been accumulating more draft picks than anyone knows what to do with, which just goes to show this team is all about building for the future.
