Thunder Send Steven Adams to the Pelicans for 1st Round Pick in 4-Team Trade

The Oklahoma City Thunder are trading big man Steven Adams to the New Orleans Pelicans for a protected first round pick and future picks according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

This is part of the Jrue Holiday trade that sent him to Milwaukee. Denver will be sending the 2023 lottery protected first round pick to the Thunder.

Adams, 27, is a seven-year veteran who has spent his entire career with the Thunder after being their first-round pick in 2013. He has averaged 9.8 points and 7.6 rebounds per game.

The Pelicans will now have an experienced center to play alongside Zion Williamson. Adams is in the last year of his deal, so the Pelicans will need to work out a long term deal if they want him to stay in New Orleans for a while.

Oklahoma City has started to rebuild as they have acquired several future picks and made a lot of trades already this offseason.
