Alexander-Walker compiled 22 points (7-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists and two rebounds across 16 minutes in Friday's 128=127 win over the Jazz.
The first-round pick out of Virginia Tech is undoubtedly going to add an interesting wrinkle into the future of the Pelicans' backcourt, especially if he continues his excellent play off the bench. While Jrue Holiday (quad) is the presumptive starter at the two, Alexander-Walker's presence is going to affect Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart's playing time. Ball especially looked to have the best chance of sealing up the starting job at the point, but Alexander-Walker is adding a bit of intrigue to the story.
Alexander-Walker registered 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and one steal across 19 minutes during the Pelicans' 127-125 preseason win over the Bulls on Wednesday.
The rookie turned in his second double-digit scoring effort in as many games to open preseason, following up what had been an impressive summer league showing. Alexander-Walker is expected to see a solid allotment of playing time behind Lonzo Ball at point guard this season, and given the latter's injury history, he could potentially be in for even more minutes than expected as the season unfolds.
Alexander-Walker collected 26 points (10-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 32 minutes during the Pelicans' 99-78 win over the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.
The 2019 first-round pick has only suited up for two games in Las Vegas thus far, but he's made a lasting impression. Alexander-Walker is averaging 24.5 points on 53.0 percent shooting over that pair of contests, and despite the small sample, he's looks more than up for the task of taking on a relatively sizable role behind Lonzo Ball during the coming season.
Alexander-Walker scored 23 points (9-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and added eight assists, three steals, two rebounds and two blocks across 27 minutes in the Pelicans' 109-72 win over the Bulls in the Las Vegas Summer League on Monday.
Alexander-Walker did it all on Monday, scoring an efficient 23 points on just 16 shots and dishing eight times. The No. 17 pick showed why he was so highly touted coming out of Virginia Tech with his effort on both ends of the court.
Alexander-Walker was selected by the Pelicans with the No. 17 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Alexander-Walker's size and playmaking ability helped him be voted onto the 2018-19 All-ACC team as a sophomore last season. The Virginia Tech product, in conference play, averaged 15.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.6 steals. His playing time next season may depend on what the Pelicans opt to do with Elfrid Payton, who is a free agent this summer. Either way, Lonzo Ball and Jrue Holiday figure to start ahead of Alexander-Walker
