The Pelicans have been impressed with Buddy Hield’s conditioning.
“His stamina is out of this world,” Pelicans Director of Player Personnel David Booth said. “He doesn’t get tired. Because he doesn’t get tired, when the defense wears down, he’s still going at a full clip. He’s still sprinting the floor in transition and is able to make those plays with freshness.” Held shouldn’t have any trouble with conditioning to start his rookie season, and should be an instant source of points and threes in fantasy.
