Nance joined the Pelicans via a McCollum-centered trade with the Portland Trail BlazersThe forward managed to play 15 games for the franchise since - 9 in the regular season and 6 in the playoffs - after healing a right knee injury.

"I'm finally healthy," Nance said recently. "I played the end of the season still recovering from the surgery. The meniscus surgery I had, I didn't realize how long that had been bothering me. I had lost a step, lost a little bit of balance, and all that came back in the summer. I feel good. I feel better than I have the last few years."
