it depends on what you want to move him for... a pick? a young vet? a quality wing player? without knowing what kinds of offers they'd get i don't have a problem with them keeping him since he's still playing at a high level and isn't paid a huge amount.
his player option for 2022 also complicates things a bit... teams that would be looking for an expiring deal could get spooked by the PO and teams looking for a more long-term asset might not want to give up as much for what could just be a one-year rental.
basically i think that the pelicans have two great building blocks in ingram and zion so they should be acquiring young assets where they can but not selling out on youth. guys like jrue and redick are great vets to have around while the youngins grow.
