The New Orleans Pelicans have been mentioned in a series of rumors in recent days. Zion Williamson isn't on the best terms with the team right now, which could prompt the Pels to move him away. 

Several teams appear to be good candidates for a Williamson trade, and a surprising one could show up if a trade proposed by Andre Snellings of ESPN goes through. 

Philadelphia 76ers get: Williamson ($33M this year), Larry Nance Jr. ($10M this year), Garrett Temple ($5M), Trey Murphy III ($3M)

New Orleans Pelicans get: James Harden (currently $33M before opt-out; Harden must agree to sign-and-trade), P.J. Tucker ($10.5M), Mac McClung (qualifying offer), two 2024 second-round picks (76ers’ and Knicks’ picks)

Snelling writes that the Sixers would be a real threat with Joel Embiid and Zion Williamson showing the way. If they manage to keep a solid supporting cast, this team would be great to watch. 

As for the Pelicans, they don't have the same style of play as the Sixers, and with Brandon Ingram as the No. 1 option, James Harden would have more scoring opportunities than he currently has in Philadelphia. 

Besides that, the opportunities for PJ Tucker to team up with Jonas Valanciunas and Herb Jones and create a solid defensive team.
