re: Pels are signing Jimmer
Also, he doesn't have to play point here and he can guard the weaker of the guard positions with Tyreke and Jrue

Granted, he won't be relied on too heavily, but his deficiencies can be covered up with the Pels personnel

Pelicans needed a shooter to replace Anthony Morrow and have closed on a deal with Jimmer Fredette, sources say


Basically what we thought:

A morrow replacement.

re: Pels are signing Jimmer
I really don't like the idea of Tyreke at SF but I will be interested to see how it works with Davis and Asik down low.

re: Pels are signing Jimmer
So we're looking at...

PG: Jrue Holiday, Austin Rivers, Russ Smith
SG: Eric Gordon, Jimmer Fredette
SF: Tyreke Evans, John Salmons, Darius Miller
PF: Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson, Patric Young
C: Omer Asik, Jeff Withey, Alexis Ajinca

right?

I feel like if we can flip Gordon for a good 3&D wing... we can make some deep runs with this team. This is gonna be a good year.

I posted this in the FA thread a couple of days ago. Nice signing this late for a Morrow replacement.

re: Pels are signing Jimmer
The only downside to this move is you have no room for Fells who has looked promising. But Jimmer is certainly more proven than Fells if you are looking for a shooter.

Same as last season. Jimmer replacing Morrow and Smith replacing Roberts. Still a lot, though.

re: Pels are signing Jimmer
I like Jimmer on this type of deal. Big caveat with that graph is that he played all of 519 minutes in 49 games last year. He can shoot, but small sample size alert.

The only question I have is does he ever play? He's 4th, at best, in the G rotation. Will be interesting to see how Monty manages the minutes of the 3 headed guard monster. I think you have to bring Evans off the bench at this point.

2nd units could be fun:

Jimmer
Rivers
Evans
Anderson
Davis/Ajinca/Withey/Young
