Pelicans fans won't have to wait long for the return of Anthony Davis.

The Los Angeles Lakers, with Davis and LeBron James in tow, will play in New Orleans at the Smoothie King Center on Nov. 27, marking their first trip of the season to the Crescent City.  That according to The Athletic's Shams Charania, who leaked a few ""superstar return games" on his Twitter account.

Not only will that game be the return of Davis to the city he played in for seven seasons, it will also be a matchup of James, the current face of the NBA, against Zion Williamson, the anointed future face of the league.  Few regular season games will be as highly anticipated as this one.

Additionally, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Pelicans will play on Christmas day in Denver against the Nuggets.  That would be the Pelican's first Christmas day game in four seasons.

The full NBA schedule will be released on August 10.  The regular season is set to begin on October 16.  

Pelicans ticket plans are available through the NBA.com website.
