According to CBS Sports, the New Orleans Pelicans faces a tough situation as the team struggles with the injuries to their best two point guards. Jrue Holiday is not completely recovered from his right tibia stress fracture injury. Norris Cole has been out for treatment of his high ankle sprain.

However, the team found a long-term solution for their current struggle by signing a one-year contract with the three-time NBA slam dunk champion Nate Robinson. Before adding Robinson, Alvin Gentry, the head coach of the Pelicans team, depended on Tyreke Evans, the team’s natural shooting guard.

Holiday could be traded to the Kings, who allegedly showed interest in the point guard this summer, reported Yibada. The 25-year-old former UCLA standout was actually traded in 2013 by the Philadelphia 76ers to the Pelicans in exchange for Nerlens Noel.

George Karl, the head coach of the Sacramento Kings, was interested to take up Holiday as a backup to Darren Collison this summer, according to Bleacher Report. However, the Kings finally ended up signing Rajon Rondo as their starting point guard.

However, it is doubtful whether the Sacramento Kings could be still interested with Jrue Holiday, as the team’s backcourt is now loaded. Hence, it is unlikely that the New Orleans Pelicans would be able to trade Holiday to the Kings.
