ANALYSIS: The Pelicans already have a strong young core, led by Zion Williamson, that also includes Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kira Lewis Jr., Jaxson Hayes and Nickeil Alexander-Walker among others. They finished 31-41 last season and have parted ways with Stan Van Gundy at head coach.
New Orleans has frequently moved around in the draft, including 2019, when they traded down from fourth overall to select Hayes and Walker later in the first round.
