Personally I would love to see Mike D’Antoni on the Pelicans. I think having a disributor like Lonzo Ball and Jrue Holiday running the offense and feeding the ball to Zion and Ingram would be absolutely fun to watch.
On the other hand what will the Rockets and especially James Harden look like wihtout Mike D’s offense? It’s going to be hard to say but I don’t expect Harden to be leading the league in scoring next season.
