New Orleans Pelicans most important player not named Ingram or Zion

Asides Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson, who is the most important player to the success of the New Orleans Pelicans this season?

Kevin: A Trio of Young Guys

There are three correct answers in my opinion — Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Trey Murphy III and Jaxson Hayes. I feel like we know what Valanciunas and Graham are by now so it’s easy to understand their role and how they fit.

Nickeil could be a third star, a Cavs-era Jordan Clarkson or a guy that never puts it all together. He’s looked like all of these things, but I believe in him and think he could possibly be the third guy that defenses fear.
