Rajon Rondo underwent surgery on Monday to repair a core muscle which is expected to keep him sidelined for four to six weeks. Jrue Holiday moved over to starting point guard in the Pelicans’ preseason win over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday and that will be the team’s plan heading into the regular season. Moore will most likely shift to his natural position and is looking at a major increase in his minutes as the Pelicans are running out of healthy bodies again. The 6’4 versatile guard shot 45.3 percent from the field and 38.3 percent from three-point range as a starter in 2016 and he will be a nice source of points and threes in the late rounds.
