If AD is staying I believe Morant or Barrett would be the better fit.

Possibly, but nobody is passing on Zion. He will pack the stands and sell merchandise.

I agree it just doesn't make sense to draft a 4 man when you already have the best one in the league. AD can play the 5 tho and he may be gone anyways idk. I think they take Zion ofcourse but Barrett had better stats on the same team as Zion last year.

How is that crazy? They both are 4s. Not really crazy that it would be better to get a position of need. I believe they will get Zion tho and AD can play the 5 some but neither are 5s and neither should play the 3.


I think Zion or AD can play small ball 5

Davis plays a lot on the perimeter now anyway. He's a competent 3pt shooter (33% last year) and is pretty #### good off the dribble. Zion is also very efficient without demanding a high usage rate so he's a good player to complement a superstar.

Also, there's no guarantee AD even does a 180 on his trade request... he may will want out. And if that's the case you turn him into picks and start over super young with Zion as the initial center piece of the rebuild.

True I believe they could figure it out if AD stays just saying it wouldn't be crazy for them to not take Zion. Ofcourse they will tho.


Zion and AD running a pick and roll would be virtually

Scuttlebutt is that his agent will try to " Eli " the Pelican organization the way Manning did the Chargers all those years ago .

by refusing to play for the Baltimore Colts who had
drafted him #1. He wanted them to trade him to a
west coast team; they traded him to Denver instead,
bwahaha. Prima donna divas

So, what's to stop Zion from

Signing a one-year, non-guaranteed contract, like KJ did (it will be, in reality)? It's not like he won't make more $$ on endorsements this coming year (so buy a Lloyd's policy)...and he'll be a free agent after year one. Until players put their '$$/brain where their mouth is', they won't force teams to seek value in another way. There's an avenue available...so use it. You know the Pelicans will realize Zion doesn't want to be there. Frankly, NO could come out ahead...if they're good poker players. Zion, too. ;)


New Orleans owns his rights***
