Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Pelicans and the 76ers.

Jrue Holiday

Jrue Holiday was drafted 17th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2009 NBA Draft. During his tenure with the 76ers, he quickly evolved into one of the team’s key players. His growth was highlighted during the 2012-2013 season when he earned his first NBA All-Star selection.

In 2013, Holiday was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans, where he further solidified his reputation as a top-tier guard. His leadership and performance in New Orleans were instrumental in several playoff appearances for the team.

In 2020, Holiday was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks. His impact was immediately felt, as he provided the Bucks with a dynamic two-way presence alongside stars like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton. The trio played a pivotal role in leading the Bucks to an NBA Championship in 2021.

J.J. Redick

J.J. Redick, a 6’4″ shooting guard, enjoyed a successful NBA career from 2006 to 2021, earning a reputation as one of the best three-point shooters in the game.

Coming out of Duke University as a decorated player, Redick was selected 11th overall by the Orlando Magic in the 2006 NBA Draft. It took him a few seasons to find his stride, but once he did, he became a valuable contributor due to his exceptional shooting skills.

Redick’s career saw him play for the Magic, Bucks, Clippers, 76ers, Pelicans, and Mavericks. He retired with a career average of 12.8 points per game, and an impressive three-point percentage of 41.5%.

Ish Smith

Ish Smith was drafted as the 17th pick in the second round of the 2010 NBA Development League Draft by the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Though he went undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft, he made his NBA debut later that year with the Houston Rockets.

Primarily known as a journeyman point guard and a valuable role player, Smith’s quickness and ability to distribute the ball have been his standout attributes.

Over his NBA career, Smith has played for an incredible 13 different teams, including the Grizzlies, Warriors, Magic, 76ers, Pistons, Wizards, Hornets and Pistons (and that’s barely over half!).
