Newly acquired Briante Weber will start at point guard on Friday against the Pelicans.
The book on Weber is that he’s coming off a major knee surgery from last January and he can defend and steal the ball. Everything else will be a crapshoot as he scored just about 10 ppg in the D-League and wasn’t known for his offense at VCU. An add before tonight’s game is the definition of a risky flier pickup, but owners will want to pay attention to this game very closely, and also the Mike Conley news that should trickle out over the next 24 hours.
