New Orleans Pelicans to launch NBA G League affiliate team

The NBA G League's expansion process continues: the league will have 28 teams for the 2019-20 season.

The New Orleans Pelicans are launching their own NBA G League affiliate team in Birmingham, Alabama, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The team will start playing in the 2019-20 season in Erie, Pennsylvania, until the renovations are complete on the arena in Birmingham.

This is another step for the NBA G League towards their complete expansion to 30 teams. The league will have 28 teams for the 2019-20 season, with Portland and Denver remaining as the only two NBA franchises without an affiliate team.
