Thought he had an offer to start for the Pelicans?



You are as delusional as ever even after years of watching Linllard's mediocre career... You think a coach like Alvin Gentry is going to want Lin to start for him - ahead of the brothers???? LOL Sure, Linllard would rather play with Lopez than Anthony Davis.... Boy, you suck at analyzing basketball!

Actually, I was just going by what was reported by the sports media, including the local New Orleans media:

If they signed Lin for the $10m/year they were hoping for, they most likely would have tried to trade Holiday and his expiring contract given the uncertainty around his availability with his wife and his health history in general.
