The New Orleans Pelicans may look for someone in the draft who can step in and play.

The New Orleans Pelicans had a draft for the ages last year.

Not only did they get franchise cornerstone Zion Williamson, but made a lot of moves that ended up getting mixed reviews.

The Pelicans traded Jordan Bone, Solomon Hill, De’Andre Hunter and a 2023 2nd round draft pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Jaxson Hayes, Marcos Louzada Silva and a 2020 1st round draft pick.
