Pelicans receiving trade interest in Ryan Anderson

It’s hard to tell if the struggling New Orleans Pelicans want to act as sellers at the NBA trade deadline, though they have quite the attractive piece to offer in forward Ryan Anderson. New Orleans sits at 11-25 and well out of the running in the Western Conference, so it only makes sense other teams—both rebuilders and hopeful contenders alike—examine the roster and make...
