Coach: Pelicans concerned about Holiday, want Asik back

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Monty Williams expressed little concern about his contract after a season in which the New Orleans Pelicans improved by 11 victories, despite lousy luck with injuries, and made the playoffs for the first time in four seasons.

The fifth-year head coach is more focused on keeping 7-foot center Omer Asik from leaving in free agency and figuring out how to help point guard Jure Holiday get past a lingering lower right leg injury.

"We're going to do everything we can, work with his doctors in (Los Angeles) to try to figure out how we can get him back on the floor," Williams said of Holiday while holding his end-of-season meeting with reporters on Tuesday. "No matter how you slice it, concern or frustration, the bottom line is I'm more saddened that he can't play for him."
