After nine years with the Trail Blazers, a team that drafted him, CJ McCollum was traded to the Pelicans. It was a bold move by Portland to part ways with one of its best players, also breaking up the duo of McCollum and Damian Lillard.

But as things have settled, the 30-year-old shooting guard is happy to be in New Orleans. To the point where he wants to retire with his new team.

McCollum, who is currently battling against the Suns in the first round of the playoffs, says he found a good spot for him in New Orleans and wants to hold onto it.

Via Marc J. Spears of Andscape:

“I’m not going nowhere. I’m here,” McCollum recently told Andscape. “Where am I going to go? Leave for what? I want to retire here. I’m 30 years old and I have a son who is 13 weeks old. I’m married. When you have something good, you hold on to it. This is something fun for both sides. We’re going to grow. I’m still learning the city. I’m going to find a house.”
