Of the seven mock drafts reviewed, four had the Pelicans passing on Trey Burke, one, CBS Sports (Gary Parrish), projected Burke to be selected prior to the 6th pick. If he is available come the 6th pick, New Orleans’ decision to pick or pass on Burke could reveal the teams’ perception of incumbent starting point guard Greivis Vasquez.
Little is truly known of the Pelicans’ draft plans. Their selection is obviously dependent on the actions of teams picking earlier in the draft. The Pelicans have not yet officially announced plans to work out any players, though it was reported that University of Michigan point guard Trey Burke is scheduled for an individual work out on Friday, June 14th.
