New Orleans Pelicans
The NEW ORLEANS PELICANS are an American professional basketball team based in New Orleans, Louisiana . The Pelicans compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member club of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division . The team plays their home games in the Smoothie King Center (formerly known as the New Orleans Arena). The Pelicans were established as the NEW ORLEANS HORNETS in the 2002–03 season when then-owner of the Charlotte Hornets , George Shinn , relocated the franchise to New Orleans. Due to the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the franchise temporarily relocated to Oklahoma City , where they spent two seasons officially known as the NEW ORLEANS/OKLAHOMA CITY HORNETS. The team returned to New Orleans full-time for the 2007–08 season . On January 24, 2013, the franchise announced it would rename itself the Pelicans, effective after the conclusion of the 2012–13 season . The Charlotte Hornets name, history and records from 1988 to 2002 were returned to its original city to be used by the then–Charlotte Bobcats franchise, which subsequently became the Charlotte Hornets , starting May 20, 2014. In 14 seasons of play since the original franchise relocated from North Carolina, the Louisiana franchise has achieved an overall regular season record of 528–604, and has qualified for the playoffs six times

Shooting Guard
The SHOOTING GUARD (SG), also known as the TWO or OFF GUARD, is one of the five positions in a regulation basketball game. A shooting guard's main objective is to score points for his team. Some teams ask their shooting guards to bring up the ball as well; these players are known colloquially as combo guards . Kobe Bryant , for example, as a shooting guard was as good a playmaker as he was a scorer; other examples of combo guards are Dwyane Wade , Allen Iverson , James Harden , Jamal Crawford , Randy Foye and Jason Terry . A player who can switch between playing shooting guard and small forward is known as a swingman . Notable swing men (also known as wing players) include Jimmy Butler , Tracy McGrady , Vince Carter , Joe Johnson , Andre Iguodala , Andrew Wiggins , Evan Turner

Small Forward
The SMALL FORWARD (SF), also known as the THREE, is one of the five positions in a regulation basketball game. Small forwards are typically somewhat shorter, quicker, and leaner than power forwards and centers , but on occasion are just as tall. The small forward position is considered to be perhaps the most versatile of the five main basketball positions. In the NBA , small forwards usually range from 6' 6" (1.98 m) to 6' 9" (2.06 m) and 5' 10" (1.79 m) to 6' 2" (1.88 m) in the W NBA . The ideal position for a small forward would be between the key and three-point line. Small forwards are primarily responsible for scoring points , defending and also often as secondary or tertiary rebounders behind the power forward and center, although a few, such as LeBron James , have considerable passing responsibilities. Many small forwards in professional basketball, however, are prolific scorers. The styles with which small forwards amass their points vary widely, as some players at the position, such as Golden State Warriors ' Kevin Durant are very accurate straight up shooters, while others such as Metta World Peace (formerly Ron Artest), Gerald Wallace , and Jerome Kersey prefer to "bang inside", initiate or not shy away from physical contact with opposing players, while others are primarily slashers such as Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James who also possess jumpshots

Nba Draft
The NBA
NBA
DRAFT is an annual event dating back to 1947 in which the thirty teams from the National Basketball Association (NBA) can draft players who are eligible and wish to join the league. These are typically college basketball players, but international players are also eligible to be drafted. College players who have finished their four-year college eligibility are automatically eligible for selection, while the underclassmen have to declare their eligibility and give up their remaining college eligibility. International players who are at least 23 years old are automatically eligible for selection, while the players younger than 22 have to declare their eligibility. Players who are not automatically eligible but have declared their eligibility are often called "early-entrants" or "early-entry candidates". The draft usually takes place at the end of June, during the NBA
NBA
offseason. Since 1989, the draft has consisted of two rounds; this is much shorter than the entry drafts of the other major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada , all of which run at least seven rounds. Sixty players are selected in each draft. No player may sign with the NBA

Sacramento Kings
The SACRAMENTO KINGS are an American professional basketball team based in Sacramento, California . The Kings compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the Western Conference\'s Pacific Division . The Kings are the only team in the major professional North American sports leagues located in Sacramento. The team plays its home games at the Golden 1 Center . The Kings are one of the oldest continuously operating professional basketball franchises in the nation. They originated in Rochester, New York , as the ROCHESTER SEAGRAMS (a semi-professional team) in 1923 and joined the National Basketball League in 1945 as the ROCHESTER ROYALS. They jumped to the Basketball Association of America , forerunner of the NBA, in 1948. As the Royals, the team was often successful on the court, winning the NBA championship in 1951 .

In 1972 , the team relocated to Kansas City, Missouri , and was renamed the KANSAS CITY-OMAHA KINGS because it initially split its home games between Kansas City and Omaha, Nebraska . In 1975 , the Kings ceased playing home games in Omaha and simply became the KANSAS CITY KINGS
