Steven Adams

ESPN reported Saturday that the trade of Jrue Holiday has been altered, bringing Thunder center to the Pelicans, bringing Thunder center Steven Adams to New Orleans.

Point guard George Hill is now being sent by the Bucks to Oklahoma City while New Orleans is shipping wing Darius Miller to the Thunder as well.

New Orleans and Milwaukee are expanding the Jrue Holiday trade to include more teams and players, including the routing of Steven Adams to the Pelicans, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal is an expansion of the Holiday-to-Milwaukee trade that was agreed on earlier in the week. It has evolved into a four-team deal, and sources said it has a lot of moving parts as teams work to finish it.

Adams, 27, is heading to New Orleans in exchange for a protected first-round pick and two future picks, according to sources. The Pelicans picked up a 2023 lottery-protected first-round pick from the Denver Nuggets on draft night for the No. 24 overall selection, RJ Hampton, sources said.

The 6-foot-11 Adams is in the final year of a contract with a $27.58 million salary in 2020-21.
