The Pelicans drafted Buddy Hield with the number six overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.
The Pelicans are in dire need of some shooting to space the floor for Anthony Davis and they got it in Hield. They are likely losing Eric Gordon this off-season and will need someone to replace him. Hield fits the bill as he scored 25 PPG and shot 46% from downtown at Oklahoma last season. Keep an eye on him late in your fantasy drafts. We think that he could have an early impact for the Pelicans and should help the rest of the team have more room to operate offensively.
