Gayle Benson said she would "never" sell either the New Orleans Pelicans or New Orleans Saints.

Benson has taken over as the owner of both franchises following the death of Tom Benson on March 15th.

"I don't think there's any other choice," Benson said at the league's owners meetings. "I think that's the only thing that you could do is to keep his legacy alive. Where else would you go? I'm from New Orleans. My husband was from New Orleans. We're just like one big family over there."

Benson was asked if it's upsetting to read or hear reports of her possibly selling and/or moving the teams.

"It's disappointing to think that somebody would think I would mess up his legacy. But I guess everyone has their opinion.

"I would never sell it. No."
