Pelicans Worked Out Hamed Haddadi

Grizzlies_Hamed_Haddadi_2013Since being released by the Phoenix Suns two months ago, reports have linked Hamed Haddadi almost exclusively to the Knicks, but it seems as if New York isn’t the only club with some interest. According to Jared Zwerling of, Haddadi recently had a workout with the New Orleans Pelicans.

As our list of 2013/14 roster counts shows, the Pelicans have 15 players under contract, but only 13 of those deals are fully guaranteed. As such, there’d still be room for Haddadi to earn a spot on the team if he were to sign with New Orleans. The Pelicans traded their 2012/13 starting center, Robin Lopez, earlier in the offseason, but still have a few players capable of playing the position, including Jason Smith, Greg Stiemsma, and Jeff Withey.
