Cheick Diallo and the Pelicans have agreed to a three-year deal.
The Pelicans will be struggling down low as they have only Alexis Ajinca, Omer Asik and Kendrick Perkins behind Anthony Davis so this bodes well for Diallo’s chances of seeing minutes right out of the gate. The 33rd overall pick (originally by the Clippers) boasts a slightly undersized 6 ft 9 in. 220 lb. frame and still possesses a very raw offensive game so fantasy owners can monitor his progress from the waiver wire to begin the year.
