Pelicans select Marcos Louzada Silva at No. 35, trade away No. 39

The New Orleans Pelicans finished off their 2019 NBA Draft with two more moves on Thursday night (June 20).

With the No. 35 pick, the Pelicans drafted Marcos “Didi” Louzada Silva of Brazil. The 6-foot-5 Silva will be a stashed pick that won’t come over to the Pelicans right away, a source told NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

A “draft-and-stashed” player refers to an international selection who is allowed to stay with his team overseas but whose rights are reserved by the NBA team who drafts him. Such players do not count against a team’s roster or salary cap.


Instead of making the final of five picks, the Pelicans opted to trade out of the draft with the No. 39 pick. New Orleans dealt the pick to Golden State for second-round picks in the 2021 and 2023 drafts. Cash considerations for the Pelicans are also involved in the deal.

The Warriors selected Serbian forward Alen Smailagic, who spent last season in the G League with the Santa Cruz Warriors.
