12. Pelicans - Devin Vassell, G/F, Florida State
Height: 6’6” | Weight: 180 | Age: 19 | Sophomore

Vassell’s blend of size and length on the wing, tangible defensive impact and shooting ability create a pretty substantial floor, while the fact he’s a young sophomore with some room to grow offensively lends some credence to the upside. He was a big part of why Florida State was so good defensively, and evolved into a more consistent scoring threat in the back half of the season, albeit primarily in a catch-and-shoot capacity. He does have some limitations athletically that could limit his upside as a scorer, but simply being a consistent spot-up player can go a long way. In theory, he’s the type of player who can add value anywhere, even if he doesn’t turn into a starting-caliber option. With a wealth of young talent under contract for next season, New Orleans doesn’t have a defined roster need, and should have some options at this spot in in the draft.

SECOND ROUND

39. Pelicans - Jalen Smith, PF/C, Maryland
Height: 6’10” | Weight: 225 | Age: 20 | Sophomore

This would be my ideal mock draft. The Sports Illustrated mock does not have the Pelicans drafting Jalen Smith, but I would package all three 2nd round picks (#39, #42, and #60) and go get Jalen.

Would give the Pelicans an "under 25" 8 man rotation of the future:

PG Lonzo / Nickeil
SG Vassell
SF Ingram / Hart
PF Zion
C Jaxson / Jalen

And a 10 man under 25 squad of:

PG Lonzo / Nickeil
SG Vassell / Frank
SF Ingram / Hart
PF Zion / Zylan
C Jaxson / Jalen
