New Orleans: Who Plays the Wing?
Similar to Houston this summer, New Orleans got whatever star they could last season when they traded for DeMarcus Cousins to pair with Anthony Davis. It might not have been a perfect pairing, but they had to do something to help Davis.
But with the way the NBA is changing, having quality wing players on your roster means the world.
For the Pelicans, that wing isn’t there at the moment.
Solomon Hill is out due to an injury and they just traded away Quincy Pondexter.
They have guards like Jrue Holiday, Rajon Rondo and E’Twaun Moore on the roster, but none of them are players who are capable of being quality starters on the wing.
