SG/SF Kenrick Williams came out of nowhere to score eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with a career-high 16 rebounds and one block in 30 minutes off the bench on Tuesday against the Rockets.
The Rockets play small and the Pelicans are shook up by the AD trade rumors, not to mention most of their good players being out. An AD deal at the deadline, which isn't as likely as a deal over the summer, in addition to multiple rumors about all the big guns, could create a vacuum for players to step into. Burning a roster slot on Williams is extremely optimistic, regardless, but keep a close eye on all of the Pelicans reserves as we go here.
