He is modelling his game after one

quote:

Duncan showed Louzada footage of Luguentz Dort, the Oklahoma City Thunder wing whose 3-and-D ability helped the former undrafted free agent ink a four-year deal worth $5.4 million in June.

"Obviously they are very different players, but I see similarities,” Duncan said. “Dort is a catch-and-shoot, shot fake, drive it to the basket and finish, drive it to the basket, kick out, relocate (player). He does all those things and plays incredible defense. And look what he’s doing for OKC."

Nice article from Christian Clark about Didi and his time in Australia. The Sydney Assistant tried to put Didi in a supporting role similar to what he would play on the Pels which was good.

That would be nice, still cautious considering how poorly he played in that role. At least offensively. 26% from the shorter three on decent volume and only 57% from the FT line, 39% overall fg%. So not great.

Last thing the team really needs is one way defense only guards.

Given this is supposedly multi year I’m hoping our guys saw something that isn’t coming across in the numbers or occasional highlight.

That might just mean this year and next -- we don't know.

re: Didi Louzada is officially with the Pelicans
1 thing I remember about Didi is that he seemingly had elite speed. He also made a lot of clutch plays on both sides of the ball in Summer League.

Imagine a lineup with Kira, Didi, Wes, and Hayes as 4 of the players. Not saying it would be a great lineup, but it would look like a track meet at times.

I don't remember the speed but I remember the activity and IQ. Also looking at the comments from beat writers about Didi "getting into" guys he's defending, that showed up too. We'll see where his shot is at, but he seems like another Josh Hart in many ways.

Not even that. Andrew Lopez tweet:


quote:

Didi Louzada’s two-year deal with the Pelicans contains a team option for next season, source tells ESPN.

He will account for $123,065 against the cap for the rest of this season.


It's basically just a deal for the rest of this season.

Makes more sense then some of the speculation I saw.

Basically prove something otherwise there’s a decent to fair chance you might get cut in favor of our draft picks or FA signings.

Wouldn't be surprised if his contract is going to be used as a trade chip.

They closed that loophole where you could trade a player with unguaranteed money and immediately cut them to save money. The salary you send out is now the salary the other team receives more or less.
