Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!Sports reports that the Pelicans did more than just make the NBA playoffs when they defeated the Spurs 108-103 on Wednesday - they saved the jobs of New Orleans general manager Dell Demps and coach Monty Williams.

Wojnarowski, one of the top NBA insiders in the league, tweeted that Demps and Williams received a mandate from ownership to make the playoffs or else in the postseason.
