Last week, the New Orleans Pelicans announced they had set a season-ending press conference for Monday in which general manager Dell Demps would speak with the media. Well, that was cancelled over the weekend and at this time nothing is scheduled.

There has been speculation and rumors that Demps might be on the way out, so on Wednesday, when Pelicans executive vice president and executive vice president and general manager of the New Orleans Saints met with the media to discuss the NFL draft, he was asked about Demps' status.

"That's not for today. This is about the Saints," Mickey Loomis told The Times-Picayune.

According to John Reid, a source said Demps is "definitely coming back" for the 2016-17 season. Demps has been in charge of basketball operations since 2010.
