I wouldn't be surprised if the Pelicans have 5 top 80 players. Of the remaining players yet to be named for the Pelicans the lowest ranked last season was Holiday at #73. We know he will be ranked higher than that. The lowest player left to be named on the Pelicans is Tyreke, who was #69 last season and is coming off of his most efficient season, so if his ranking does drop it won't be by much.
ETA: The Pelicans could also possibly qualify for trend #2, last season Ryno was ranked #50, I don't think he did anything to make his drop lower than that, then again I wouldn't be surprised if he was ranked in the mid 50's.
