New Orleans Pelicans: Questions for the veteran bench players at media day

Tomas Satoransky- What changed between when you hit 46 percent from 3-point range for the Wizards to hitting 35 percent last season?

At one point in his career Satoransky looked like a lights-out 3-point shooter. He hit 46.5 percent for the Wizards in 2017-18 but only 35 percent last season. I’d like to know if he thinks this is due to a change in role, more attempts or has something changed about his shot. Satoransky could get a lot of open spot-up looks this season and I’d like to know which guy we are getting.

Garrett Temple- What is your favorite restaurant in New Orleans?

I love food so I am always interested in what these guys are eating. Temple is from Louisiana and went to LSU, so I assume he has an opinion on the local cuisine. He has also arranged a team dinner this offseason and I’m curious where they went and what he likes to eat in New Orleans.

Stupid question? Sure, but I love food so deal with it.

Willy Hernangomez- Have you added any wrinkles to your game this offseason?

Hernangomez is currently the third center and insurance policy against Jaxson Hayes not playing well or getting hurt. But Hernangomez was solid last season and most players don’t just accept that they are third on the depth chart, so I’d be curious what elements he’s worked on this offseason that may give him an edge over youngster Jaxson Hayes.

Josh Hart- What have you done specifically this offseason to improve your 3-point shot?

Josh Hart is a good defender who is one of the best guard rebounders in the NBA, so the only thing holding him back from being a consistent 6th Man of the Year candidate is his shot, which has pretty much gotten worse every year he’s been in the league.

Hart went from 39.5 percent in his rookie season to just 32 percent last season, and the New Orleans Pelicans could really use his shooting, so what is he doing to get better?
