• Nickeil Alexander-Walker
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Rookie Nickeil Alexander-Walker played in 41 games for the Pelicans, averaging 5.1 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 triple, ending up with 407/425 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    NAW capitalized on a strong Summer League performance and was part of the rotation at the beginning of the season, but he quickly hit the rookie wall and ended up playing in the G League where he suffered a right wrist fracture. The rookie showed a lot of potential as a secondary playmaker who can run and defend but he struggled with his percentages, shooting just .339 from the field and .342 from behind the arc. He seems to be an integral piece of a young Pelicans team that is slowly developing an exceptional core and the future looks bright for him.
