New Orleans Pelicans Announce “We Win, You Win” Promotion for NBA In-Season Tournament

NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Pelicans today announced a “We Win, You Win” Sweepstakes for the NBA In-Season Tournament, a new annual competition for all 30 teams that will debut in the 2023-24 regular season.

If New Orleans wins the championship of the inaugural NBA In-Season Tournament, the Pelicans will give away $1 million in sweepstakes prize money to one hundred eligible participants – amounting to $10,000 each.

“The NBA In-Season Tournament is an innovative way to enhance team competition and fan interest with meaningful games during the regular season,” said Pelicans President Dennis Lauscha. “Teams and players are incentivized to win the inaugural NBA Cup, and we wanted to give our fans an opportunity to win, as well.
