Could rookie Nickeil Alexander-Walker benefit from stint in G-League?

The New Orleans Pelicans are a team going through many of the issues young teams in this league experience, better known around the world as growing pains. While Nickeil Alexander-Walker has shown some good traits, he’s had issues trying to find an evenness to his game.

It’s been a struggle at times for the rookie, who looked brilliant in summer league action, then even more brilliant in leading opportunities in preseason play.

Alexander-Walker is a reflection of this Pelicans’ unit as a whole. Both are struggling on defense, show a lot of promise on offense, and have a lot of positives to take out of a negative start.
