Oklahoma shooting guard Buddy Hield and Kansas forward Cheick Diallo will play in Summer League for the Pelicans.
No surprises here and Hield will garner as much attention as almost anybody in Summer League, while we’ll be watching to see if Diallo can build off a strong showing at the combine. The Pelicans are very shallow and Hield is definitely on the radar in fantasy leagues, but Diallo could show up as well if a few things break the right way. As for Hield, he has a C.J. McCollum-like stat set coming out of Oklahoma with 50.1/45.7/88.0 percent shooting and plenty of volume. We’re going to watch him closely and deliver a verdict that could possibly surprise a lot of people.
