The New Orleans Pelicans have interest in acquiring Dejounte Murray from the Atlanta Hawks. Since it became clear Murray was put on the trade market, he has been most strongly linked with the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks.

"I do think there's another team that has piqued Atlanta's interest and vice versa, and that's New Orleans," said Adrian Wojnarowski. "There's been some conversations. I don't know if they've elevated quite yet. I think there maybe could be some more here leading to the trade deadline on a deal that I don't think would include CJ McCollum. I think it would be Dejounte Murray with him."

Wojnarowski adds that the Pelicans would have interest in Onyeka Okongwu along with Murray.

The Pelicans have a surplus of future picks incoming from the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers.
