The New Orleans Pelicans have interest in signing CJ McCollum and Larry Nance Jr. to contract extensions. The Pelicans acquired both players from the Portland Trail Blazers in February, which helped turn around their season and become a playoff team.
"It sounds like CJ McCollum is having some contract extension talks with the Pelicans," said Brian Windhorst. "I'm not sure when he can actually sign that, Andrew. I know he signed his last contract extension in 2019."
"I believe it is next month when they can start talking about that," said Andrew Lopez. "I know it's before the season..."
"Maybe they haven't 'talked', but I heard they 'talked', don't tell anybody," replied Windhorst in a hushed voice.
McCollum signed a three-year, $100 million contract extension in 2019.
"I think the Pelicans are also interested in extending Larry Nance's contract," added Windhorst. "We'll see if that gets done."
