Pelicans can't find decent deals at trade deadline

With Thursday's NBA trading deadline passing, the Pelicans have not made any late-hour moves, meaning their next deal won't come until the offseason.

The Pelicans are 23-30, eight games out of the Western Conference's final playoff spot heading into Thursday night's action.

New Orleans' has been hampered by injuries to high-scoring forward Ryan Anderson and starting point guard Jrue Holiday.

Barring a draft-day deal, the Pelicans won't likely have a first-round pick in this June's NBA draft. Philadelphia owns New Orleans' pick unless it falls in the top five.

New Orleans may have to rely on free-agency or offseason trades to bolster next season's roster.
