The New Orleans Pelicans have selected Trey Murphy III with the No. 17 overall pick in the NBA Draft.
New Orleans traded back from No. 10 to No. 17 with Memphis after moving Eric Bledsoe and Steven Adams for Jonas Valanciunas.
ANALYSIS: A sniper as a shooter and an effective defender, Trey Murphy III has come into his own at Virginia after transferring from Rice. He doesn't excel in creating for himself, but as a movement and spot-up shooter, he can be incredibly valuable to just about any NBA offense. Considering his size, length, mobility, defense, and ability to stretch the floor, Murphy will be a viable option for teams selecting in the first round.
