The deal is an expansion of the Jrue 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.
That pick was originally Milwaukee’s and one of three first-rounders New Orleans received for Holiday.
Denver will reroute the 2023 pick to Oklahoma City as a part of the trade, and Oklahoma City is also receiving two future second-round picks from New Orleans, sources said.
