New Orleans Pelicans (8.8)
Analysis: Burke certainly will get a look as the potential No. 1 pick if the Magic draft there. The other team that seems to fit Burke are the Pelicans. Yes, Greivis Vasquez is coming off a breakout season, but Burke is a totally different player and could complement Vazquez coming off the bench early on. The Pelicans' other big need is at small forward. Shabazz Muhammad could get a look here. So could Croatia's Dario Saric. Sources say that the Pelicans are one of the two or three strongest suitors for Saric at the moment.
DraftExpress: No question Dario Saric is a prospect. His feel is off the charts. Problem is he shoots 50% from the free throw line and can't guard anyone.
Saric seems like a stretch in the top 5,
I've seen comparisons all over the place, from Galinari to Tony Kukoc pre-NBA (he was a beast in Europe before he got fat and went NBA) to Odom (weird comparison there).
Sounds like the perfect guy to get at 15...but at 5?
Everything I'm reading on Saric says that he's likely a "draft and stash" player rather than an immediate contributor
This is false. This guy can shoot his arse off!
I'm gonna be beyond furious if this guy or Shabazz end up on our team at 5. I will seriously doubt our team's ability to put a contender on the floor with the current regime.
