His priority was to stay in the NBA and continue at least one more season. Willy Hernangmez accepted the proposal of the New Orleans Pelicans for a year and the minimum of 2.5 million, and integrate a young and exciting project after the difficulties in unstable teams like the Knicks or the Hornets.

Willy has always had to fight to get into the rotation. And in the Pelicans he will have to do it, because sharing a locker room with a lot of talent. But the team, with fewer emergencies than those it leaves behind, has the ability to fight in the West for a playoff spot.

The oldest of the Hernangmez, who this year averaged 8.3 points per night, will have at his side players like Brandon Ingram, Zion Williamson, Lonzo Ball or Steven Adams who, like him, will be new this year. He will also have a veteran like Stan Van Gundy as his coach.
