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.
