Raw but going to be fun watching these guys in a couple years in the playoffs. Keep stacking and Pelicans could be a contender in 2 years. Next year though is going to suck.

Pelicans should've stayed put and taken Coby White at No. 4...

Was initially thinking the same. Is it a salary cap move?

But what about getting multiple picks for that #4 ?

Yeah, buddy of mine who follows closely (admittedly I don't, Old Celtics Fan), stated getting rid of the Hill contract was huge...

Countered that the Pels should've sent Ball and that pick and moved back up to take White...

Believe White likely will be the second best player in this draft from what I've seen...

Not a big fan of frail big men that can't shoot; then again, not a fan of guards who can't shoot (Ball) and bring their own circus...

The tall skinny kid, not liking that pick at all. Gonna get slung around in the box. Going to have to become a rebound speciists.

Unibrow was way too frail when he was drafted. It took him three years to fill out enough.
