2014 NBA draft chatter

The 2014 NBA draft is on Thursday and the rumor mill is heating up as we get closer to the event.

Here is the latest scuttlebutt from around the NBA:

  • From John Reid of The Times-Picayune: "According to league sources, the Pelicans are still having conversations with several teams about trying to trade into the first round to select a center or small forward, their two greatest need areas. ... But a league source confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Jrue Holiday has not been included in any trade discussions by the Pelicans to secure a draft pick."
