Pelicans GM Dell Demps said Tuesday that the team is excited about Frank Jackson and Cheick Diallo developing and making impacts next season.
Jackson was a second round pick in 2017 and missed the entire season after breaking his foot that required multiple surgeries. He showed fantastic athleticism at the NBA combine last year and is a former five-star recruit for Duke which certainly points to his potential to grow as an NBA player. Diallo has had limited playing time in his two seasons after also being selected in the second round. He is likewise a former five-star recruit from Kansas and has already flashed some of the upside he brings. Depending on how the Pelicans' summer shakes out, it may take injuries for either player to be on the draft radar.
