The Pelicans were founded in 2002 as the New Orleans Hornets when the Charlotte Hornets owner relocated the team. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the franchise was temporarily located in Oklahoma City and was officially the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets.

The team returned to New Orleans in 2007 and rebranded itself the Pelicans. The Hornets’ name was returned to the franchise now in Charlotte. New Orleans is one of six NBA franchises that have never reached the NBA Finals. The Pelicans have won a first-round playoff series just twice in franchise history.

Nationally televised Pelicans games are available to watch on TV on ESPN, ESPN+, ABC, and TNT. Regional broadcasts can be viewed on FOX Sports New Orleans. Fans can watch the Pelicans complete schedule via live stream using the FOX Sports GO app or by going to

The Pelicans were in the Eastern Conference for their first two seasons in the NBA. They made the postseason in both. New Orleans now plays in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference where they have won the division title just once. That came in 2007-08.

That season is also one of two in which the Pelicans advanced past a first-round playoff series. The other was in 2017-18 when New Orleans swept Portland in Round 1 but lost to Golden State in the conference semifinals. The Pelicans have never won a conference championship.


Anthony Davis was the first overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft. He played his first eight NBA seasons in New Orleans and is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer (11,059), rebounder (4,906), and shot blocker (1,121). Davis was an All-Star selection seven times and won an All-Star Game MVP in 2017. He was selected All-NBA First Team in 2015, 2017, and 2018 and has also made the All-Defensive Team three times. Davis has led the NBA in blocked shots three times (2014, 2015, and 2018). He left New Orleans for Los Angeles having averaged 23.7 points and 10.5 rebounds per game for the Pelicans.

David West, a first-round NBA draft pick in 2003, has the distinction of playing the most minutes in Pelicans history. West played for the franchise then known as the Hornets for nine seasons. He is the franchise’s second-leading scorer with 8,690 points, second-leading rebounder with 3,853 rebounds, and second-leading shot blocker with 435. West was selected for the NBA All-Star game twice (2008, 2009) while playing in New Orleans.

Chris Paul is one of the NBA’s great modern point guards. He was the fourth overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft and played his first seven NBA seasons in New Orleans. Paul remains third on the franchise scoring list with 7,936 points. Despite only seven seasons, Paul is the franchise leader in assists (4,228) and steals (1,010).
