Pelicans Need to Trade Zion Williamson While They Still Can

Chris Broussard: "Zion Williamson has missed 97 of 182 games. In Greg Oden's first 182 games, he played 79. Joel Embiid played 12 of his first 182. So if you're the Pelicans you're thinking 'is this Oden, is this Embiid, or is this somewhere in the middle?'"
Rob Parker: "If I'm the New Orleans Pelicans, I'm trading Zion as soon as I can. I don't want an Anthony Davis 2.0. I would be concerned that he can't stay healthy. There's already the talk of him not being happy in New Orleans, and he doesn't want to be a part of the team and organization. He's a young guy who should be there. I would be concerned that he's comfortable being in Portland a gazillion miles away. He ain't happy? What is he not happy about? He's getting paid and he's not playing. New Orleans, cut and run. This is not new."
