Pelicans' Buddy Hield: Signs rookie contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield signed a rookie contract with the Pelicans on Friday.

Hield recently wrapped up a rocky Las Vegas Summer League showing with the Pelicans, during which he averaged 16.8 points per game, but shot only 32.7 percent from the field and 22.9 percent from three-point range. The Pelicans are still hopeful that Hield will be a major contributor as a rookie, and the opportunity could be there for him to start at shooting guard to begin the season while Tyreke Evans (knee) remains sidelined. Langston Galloway and E'Twaun Moore also figure to challenge for the starting role.

Pelicans' Alonzo Gee: Officially signs deal with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Gee (quad) officially re-signed Thursday with the Pelicans on a one-year, $1.4 million contract, Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops reports.

Gee is expected to once again fill a depth role in his second season with the Pelicans, though he'll likely see his playing time drop a bit after averaging 22.4 minutes per game across 73 appearances in 2015-16. The 30-year-old suffered a ruptured right quad muscle in late March that cost him the rest of the season, but the expectation is that he'll be ready to go for training camp.

Pelicans' Cheick Diallo: Signs three-year deal with Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Diallo signed a three-year contract with the Pelicans on Wednesday, Marc Stein of reports.

An extremely raw prospect, Diallo was selected with the 33rd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft back in June. He saw less than 10 minutes per game in his lone collegiate season with Kansas, but has a ton of potential defensively thanks to a 7-foot-4 wingspan. Diallo is coming off an impressive summer league, during which he averaged 10.8 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 29.0 minutes per game over five appearances, but he's likely to see only a minimal role as a rookie with Anthony Davis and Terrence Jones on hand to absorb most of the minutes at power forward.

Pelicans' Buddy Hield: Disappoints in Las Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield struggled mightily in five Las Vegas Summer League games, averaging 16.8 points per game but shooting just 32.7 percent from the floor and 22.9 percent from three.

While Hield added 5.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, his issues shooting the ball overshadowed the positives. The Oklahoma product attempted at least 17 shots in all five games and connected on only 10-of-35 looks over the Pelicans' final two contests. He also failed to get to the line at a high rate, attempting just 10 total free throws for the week. All that said, it's important to not take summer league results too seriously, and Hield will still be a major contributor for New Orleans as a rookie.

Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Expects to miss start of regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (knee) is not expected to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season, Justin Verrier of reports.

After dealing with knee issues over the past few seasons, Evans recently had three separate procedures on his right knee, all of which came within nine months of each other. It's an extremely tough blow to his fantasy value, as not only will he miss the start of the season, but he remains without any sort of concrete timetable for a return, making it hard to gauge how far into the regular season he'll be out. Evans' problematic history of knee injuries makes his future playing ability cloudy as well, so he's a candidate to avoid in the early rounds of fantasy drafts. This could open up an opportunity for Buddy Hield to get some early playing time as a rookie, while newly-signed E'Twaun Moore and Langston Galloway are also candidates to start the season with elevated roles.
