Despite not earning All-NBA, Anthony Davis is still eligible to sign a $235.5M extension with New Orleans this summer. Davis met the Designated Player Veteran Extension criteria when he earned All-NBA in 2016-17 and 2017-18. The extension is eliminated if Davis were to be traded.

For being named All-Defensive Second Team, Jrue Holiday has earned a $100K bonus. The bonus was considered likely and the cap hit for the New Orleans guard in 2019-20 will remain at $26.2M. For the season, Holiday earned $1.1M in incentives.

Griffin: Pels 'right environment' for Zion, AD

Pelicans executive vice president David Griffin said New Orleans is creating the "right environment" to attract top draft prospects like Zion Williamson and Ja Morant, and to potentially retain Anthony Davis.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry was asked Monday if he thinks the team's lottery luck could make Anthony Davis reconsider his trade demand. “You're asking me a question that only AD can answer,” Gentry said at the Saints Hall of Fame Celebrity Golf Classic. “Obviously we feel like we're moving in the right direction and would love for him to be a part of it. I think everyone keeps forgetting that he is on our roster. He is a roster player for us until July of 2020.” Gentry said the next step for the team will likely be a meeting between the Pelicans' new executive VP David Griffin and Davis at some point. “And then we'll move on from there,” Gentry said.
