#10 Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Jaxson Hayes/Derrick Favors
The Pelicans winning the draft lottery, which meant knowing they were getting Zion, arguably the most polarizing prospect since LeBron James, seemed to change the way many viewed their eventual Anthony Davis deal with the Lakers. Back at the trade deadline when all of the same players were on the table, many claimed L.A.’s offer wasn’t good enough, even though it’s true that nobody at that time knew the Lakers would move up in the draft and have the No. 4 overall pick to include in the package. Still, by getting Williamson, there is optimism that the pieces New Orleans received in the AD deal, including Ingram and Lonzo Ball, will fit in perfectly alongside the 19-year-old phenom. Also, Hayes, whom the Pelicans acquired in a secondary trade from Atlanta on draft night, has the potential to blossom into an elite defender.
