Naji Marshall could be a steal for the New Orleans Pelicans after going undrafted.

Every year there are players who get overlooked in the NBA draft who end up being impact players. The New Orleans Pelicans hope Naji Marshall is one of them.

Most recently, the Miami Heat were able to find Duncan Robinson and Kendrik Nunn on the undrafted scrap heap and both were solid contributors on a team that just made the NBA Finals.

Fred VanVleet was undrafted and just signed a huge contract with the Raptors, so it is possible to find talent outside of two rounds of the NBA Draft.
