According to Nola.com, Darius Miller is projected to be the starting small forward for the New Orleans Pelicans.
This is all just speculation as the Pelicans are trying to fill the void left by Solomon Hill’s injury. Darius Miller last played for the NBA in 2014-15 and has averaged 14.3 minutes over 102 career games, all with the Pelicans. He averaged 12.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.1 triples in 27.1 minutes for German club, Brose Bameberg last year. There is nothing to suggest the 2012 NCAA Champion will make a fantasy impact even if he does become the starter. Perhaps he can make some noise as a deep-league, three-point specialist. The Pelicans are also currently in talks to bring back veteran Dante Cunningham and recently signed Tony Allen should also play some small forward. The preseason will help us get a better sense of the Pelicans’ potential rotation.
