Tyreke Evans could push Eric Gordon to bench
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans closed his season out strong after a slow start, and the impetus was a move to the starting lineup March. After he found success as a starter, the team might make the move permanent next season.

From March 1 on, he averaged 20.0 points, 6.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, while starting 21 of the team's final 22 games. His success could lead the team to consider a full-time switch next season, and coach Monty Williams told the team's official website that is something they will consider, especially with incumbent shooting guard Eric Gordon's inability to stay healthy yet again.

Evans ended up finishing fifth on the team in scoring at 14.5 points per game, while adding 4.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists, and appearing in the third-most games.

Brian Roberts ends up league leader in FT percentage
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pelicans guard Brian Roberts returned to play four minutes in Wednesday's game against the Rockets, and that was enough for him to jump onto the NBA's leaderboard.

Roberts scored just three points in the game, all at the free-throw line. His three made free throws gave him 125 made on the season, making him eligible for the free-throw percentage leaderboard, where he finishes the season at the top with a 93.9 percent success rate.

Roberts struggled to play through an ankle injury late in the season, but still stepped his production for the season up in his season year in the league. He finished the season averaging 9.4 points and 3.3 assists in 72 games, including 42 starts.

Eric Gordon set for surgery Wednesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pelicans guard Eric Gordon will undergo arthroscopic surgery to clean up his left knee Wednesday, the result of an injury that cost him the final 13 games of the season.

Gordon is expected to be fully recovered from the surgery by the start of next season, though at this point it may be a stretch to expect him to be fully healthy. He missed 18 games this season, which is actually his lowest total since he was a rookie in 2008-09.

Gordon finished the 2013-14 season averaging 15.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game.
