It was a fantastic column, and I agree with 99% of it. I tried to ask him why he thinks that teams will have so much success playing small ball against us, but I [link=(https://twitter.com/MasonGinsberg/status/354677437742845953)]couldn't really get an answer out of him[/link], unfortunately....

I'll take 22 year old Jrue over 22 year old Conley without question, but that wasn't what was presented. I disagree that, at this moment, Jrue is the 2nd best PG in the Southwest Division. I think Conley is better. He's also 3 years older, though....

| Pelicans Talk|| re: BSS Final Mock Draft - GeauxHornets on 6/27/13 at 1:49 pm|
Burke’s character appears to be a huge deciding factor, and perhaps the tiebreaker between he and McLemore, while the need for stability in the team’s back court gives Burke the nod over Len.
I believe Mcollum would be the choice if this was a factor. [/quote]

His deal becomes fully guaranteed in about 2 weeks (July 5th), so if the Pelicans are hoping to use that contract detail to their advantage, they'd need to move him soon. Agree with the notion that he has value regardless, though....

It's pretty clear that, given his sub-par jumper, he doesn't have a chance at the 2. I do think that there's still a chance that he could carve out a role as a backup 3 with his skill set; he's athletic, strong, and can get to the rim. If he works on improving his defense (he could be a good defende...
