Tracy McGrady thinks the Pelicans should break up their All-Star duo of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.

While guesting on ESPN’s The Jump, McGrady said New Orleans should trade Davis if they get a commitment from Cousins (starting at 2:40):

Should the Pelicans keep Boogie and the Brow together?


T-Mac: โ€œNo. Absolutely not. Because I think with this roster, how are you going to go out and improve?


“If you sign Boogie to a max contract, you already have AD on his max contract. You have Jrue Holiday making $26 million a year. You canโ€™t improve this roster.โ€ [โ€ฆ]


โ€œIf I could get a commitment from Boogie, I would look to trade AD because I feel I could get valuable assets to improve my roster. And I already have a legitimate big man that is just as dominant as AD.


“Iโ€™m afraid that if I trade Boogie, I wonโ€™t get that same value back for him.โ€
