Despite being a relatively young franchise (this season marks their 22nd year in existence), the New Orleans Pelicans have been well-represented at the All-Star game. In total, they have had nine different players receive an All-Star nomination and 19 total All-Star seasons.

Having a lot of All-Stars/All-Star appearances is always a great thing because, for the most part, players selected to the All-Star game are among the top-25/30 players in the league in that given season. As a general rule, having elite players on your team usually helps your team win games!

With all that said, here are the nine players who have made an All-Star game while playing for the Pelicans/Hornets:

List of New Orleans Pelicans/Hornets All-Stars (Number of All-Star Appearances)*

Jamal Mashburn (1x)

Jamaal Magloire (1x)

Baron Davis (1x)

David West (1x)

Chris Paul (4x)

Anthony Davis (6x)

DeMarcus Cousins (1x)

Brandon Ingram (1x)

Zion Williamson (2x)

As is the case with most of these historical posts we do, Anthony Davis and Chris Paul are the leaders in this category. They make up over half (52.6%) of the All-Star appearances in franchise history.

The only other player to make multiple All-Star appearances with New Orleans is their most recent All-Star, Zion Williamson. If he stays healthy (and with the team), there’s a good chance that he surpasses both Paul and Davis in All-Star appearances as a Pelican/Hornet.

Brandon Ingram is the other current Pelicans player on this list. However, he hasn’t made an All-Star team since the 2019-20 season (three full seasons ago). But if he continues to play the way he did after the All-Star break in 2022-23, there’s a good chance he finds himself back in the All-Star game very soon.

Most of the other current players on the Pelicans’ roster are more role players. But if we had to guess that one of them would become the next Pelicans’ player to be named an All-Star (other than Ingram and Williamson), it would probably be the ever-promising Trey Murphy III.
