The New Orleans Pelicans are considering the possibility of trading Lonzo Ball and JJ Redick after receiving interest from several unnamed teams, The Athletic's Shams Charania reports.

New Orleans has reportedly displayed an openness in shipping the pair, especially with an eye on creating further opportunities for young guards Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Kira Lewis in Stan Van Gundy's rotation.

The 5-10 Pelicans will continue with plans to build the team around star duo Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram, Charania adds.

Ball, who's in his fourth season, is set to become a restricted free agent in the offseason, which could prompt New Orleans' potential desire to ship the point guard.

Veteran sharpshooter Redick could be on the wish list of playoff sides seeking reinforcements on the perimeter. The 36-year-old is averaging 20.5 minutes per game this season for the Pelicans, his lowest usage since 2008-09.

The Pelicans and Golden State Warriors have also reportedly discussed a deal for Kelly Oubre Jr., though Charania notes that talks are at a strictly preliminary stage.
