The Saints and Pelicans announced funeral and visitation details for owner Tom Benson, who died Thursday at the age of 90. The funeral mass will be restricted to invited guests because of space restrictions at St. Louis Cathedral on Friday from noon-1 CT – though it will be televised on WLAE-TV. Public visitations will be held at Notre Dame Seminary on Wednesday from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. CT and Thursday from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. CT. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Ochsner Clinic Foundation, Notre Dame Seminary or St. Louis Cathedral are preferred.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry on the death of Tom Benson: "We lost a giant. The things that he's done, not just for the Pelicans and the Saints, but for the state of Louisiana. He's a self-made man that had the biggest heart you could ever imagine. In my case, as a coach of a team, you would only want the owner to do everything he can to possibly help you win a championship. I can say without a doubt Mr. B has done that. Everything we've asked him to do or want him to do, he'd try to do. Our hearts and prayers go out to the whole Benson family. I just want everybody to keep that in mind tonight and pray and help her get through all this. I just think he is such … the thing I remember most, after every win he comes down from the locker room and gets in the circle and puts his hand in and 1, 2,3 Pelicans or whatever. I think our guys really enjoy that, and knew that he cared so much about our team and everything we were trying to do. His goal was to try and bring a championship to New Orleans, same that he did for the Saints. As I said, he did everything he possibly could to make that happen. He's going to be missed, and not just from the athletic standpoint. He was just a great man. He's going to be really, really missed."

Jrue Holiday is not on pace to reach the 4th bonus in his contract for assists per game. All four bonuses before the season were deemed likely and the Pelicans will now see the Holiday cap hit for next season drop from $26.1M to $25.9M.

Jrue Holiday has now reached the 3rd bonus in his contract. Holiday by playing in his 67th game and averaging 3.15 rebounds per game will earn $255K. The Pelicans guard had already earned $510K in previous bonuses.
