New Orleans Pelicans: Can Didi Louzada, Herbert Jones and Trey Murphy III bring defense on the wing?
The Pelicans have spent most of the offseason so far trying to add athletic wings who can shoot the 3-point shot and defend.
They have three of them on the Summer League squad in Didi Louzada, Herbert Jones and Trey Murphy III.
Louzada may be ready to contribute right away after playing professionally in Australia and Trey Murphy III is tailor-made to thrive in New Orleans.
I really love what Herb Jones brings to the table as well, as he is a very good defender who could make an impact right away off the Pelicans’ bench.
I hope to see these three smothering opponents on the wing, using their length to defend multiple positions, which is exactly what the Pels need around Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.
Did the Pelicans do enough to improve their porous wing defense? We’ll get our first glimpse today.
