Steven Adams Reaches a 2-Year, $35 Million Deal With New Orleans Pelicans

Steven Adams Reaches an Agreement with the New Orleans Pelicans

Following a trade, Steven Adams has agreed to a two-year, $35 million extension with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans acquired Adams from a four-team trade deal between the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Milwaukee Bucks, the Denver Nuggets and of course the Pelicans. Adams was previously on the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Zach Lowe was the one who reported the signing via Twitter.

Adams was drafted in 2013 by the Thunder and has been playing for the team since. Last season, Adams averaged 10.9 points per game, 9.3 rebound per game and 2.3 assists per game. Averaging almost a double double, Adams was obviously a valuable asset to the Thunder team and was a big man that saw reasonable playing time, averaging 26.7 minutes per game.

When looking at the Pelicans roster, most of the players are pretty new to the NBA. The star of the Pelicans is Zion Williamson, who is only going on his second year in the NBA. JJ Redick is another veteran guard on the Pelicans, but Adams can provide even more leadership and experience on his new team. Adams can help shape Williamson into a leader on and off the court. The consistency of Adams’ performance may help the Pelicans as they try to shape their younger players.
