The Pelicans are so desperate at small forward.

Audience: How desperate are they?

Brett Martel of the Associated Press:‏

Beyond E’Twaun Moore and Tony Allen playing down from their more comfortable shooting guard position, New Orleans could rely on small forwards who fell out of the NBA the last couple years. Martell Webster and Perry Jones join Darius Miller.

The 30-year-old Webster, who has been sidetracked by hip injuries, is trying to make an unlikely comeback. Just 25, Jones might be closer to tapping the potential that made him a first-round pick in 2015, but he slipped to the D-League for good reason.

Neither is an appealing option. But with Solomon Hill injured, the Pelicans can’t be choosy.
