2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Rookie Russ Smith joins the New Orleans Pelicans this season after being acquired in a draft-night trade with the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the rights to Pierre Jackson. The former Louisville star has been one of the most electric players in the nation over the last two college basketball seasons, averaging better than 18 points and two steals in each of his past two seasons. Smith also excelled at the Las Vegas Summer League this July, averaging 16.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, and a league-leading 6.4 assists through five games. This season, there could be an opportunity for playing time immediately with the Pelicans thanks to the departure of guard Brian Roberts. Third-year guard Austin Rivers hasn't found much success yet in the NBA, and fourth-year man Jimmer Fredette has proven to be little more than a three-point specialist in his time in the Association. Even if Smith doesn't overtake Rivers and Fredette, opportunity could arise this season due to injury. Starting point guard Jrue Holiday missed 48 games last season, and shooting guard Eric Gordon's 64 games played in 2013-14 were the most he's played since his rookie season. A volume scorer with three-point range and a reputation as a pesky defender, Smith could hold value this year if things break the right way in New Orleans.
