Pelicans' Nick Minnerath: Will play summer league with Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minnerath will play summer league with the Pelicans, David Pick of Basketball Insiders reports.

After being released by the Cavaliers last year, Minnerath played 49 games in the NBA D-League where he was very impressive. The shooting guard averaged 18.5 points while shooting 40 percent from three and 50 percent from the field on top of grabbing 6.9 rebounds per game. He'll look to get his second chance at the NBA after his stint with New Orleans this summer.

Pelicans' Larry Drew: Signed summer league deal with Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew signed a summer league deal with the Pelicans Friday, David Pick of Basketball Insiders reports.

Drew served as a star for the Pelicans in last year's summer league, managing a league-high 7.8 assists per game to go along with 9.0 points. That, however, was not enough to get him an invite to training camp and he decided to sign with AS Monaco in France shortly after. Drew will get one more opportunity to prove his worth as a floor leader in the NBA this summer.

Pelicans' Cheick Diallo: Selected No. 33 by Clippers, shipped to Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Diallo was selected by the Clippers with the 33rd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. However, he'll be traded to the Pelicans for the 39th and 40th selections in this year's draft, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Diallo checks in at just 6-foot-9 and 219 pounds, but he has a 7-foot-4 wingspan, which should help him make an impact on the defensive end of the court. However, he rarely saw the court in Kansas in his only collegiate season, averaging 3.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 7.5 minutes per game.

Pelicans' Buddy Hield: Selected No. 6 overall by Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hield was selected by the Pelicans with the sixth overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

For a team that was absolutely decimated with injuries last season, the Pelicans will be more than happy with a rookie who can simply maintain his health, although Hield plans to offer much more than that as one of the top shooters in this year's draft class. The 22-year-old averaged 25 points per game during his senior season at Oklahoma, shooting 50.1 percent from the field, 45.7 percent from beyond the arc and 88 percent from the free-throw line. Despite those impressive numbers, it's possible Hield will be coming off the bench as a rookie with Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday likely in line to open the season as backcourt starters, assuming soon-to-be-free agent Eric Gordon isn't re-signed. Still, Hield's three-point prowess might be enough to earn him plentiful minutes right away on the second unit.
