Duke center, Michigan guard among projections for New Orleans at No. 14 pick
Based entirely on recent updates to national mock drafts, a couple websites are projecting the Pelicans to add another Duke product (center Dereck Lively).
In terms of areas where he can help the Pelicans, Dyson Daniels is really fantastic at facilitating within the flow of an offense. With offensive weapons like McCollum, Ingram and Williamson working alongside him, that skill could really benefit the Pels if he’s working in the first unit.
Trajan Langdon on the 6-foot-10, 231-pounder: “(He is a) high-energy young man. Big-time athlete with his size. We’re hoping that with playing a year or two in Europe (against) some high-level competition, he’ll be ready to be back here and help us.”
