How the 2013 Draft Could Have Changed the New Orleans Pelicans

With the season in flux and many questions left unanswered, it’s a good time to look back and see how a few things could have gone differently.

Teams miss in the draft all of the time, like when New Orleans took Hilton Armstrong and Cedric Simmons in 2006 while passing on Thabo Sefolosha, Rajon Rondo and Kyle Lowry.

How about taking Julian Wright over Marco Belinelli, as New Orleans did in 2007?
