7 things to know about Pelicans draft pick Frank Jackson”

In eerily similar fashion, the Pelicans traded their 40th overall pick plus cash considerations to trade up to 31st overall where they obtained scarcely used freshmen combo guard, Frank Jackson.

The New Orleans Pelicans made some interesting moves in the 2017 NBA Draft and added a needed piece to the roster. Standing at 6-foot-6 and 208 pounds and sporting a 7-foot wingspan, Reed averaged 35.3 minutes, 14.9 points and almost five rebounds per game this year. "He measures in at 6'4" tall, 208 lbs. and is considered an explosive athlete.

The Vertical's Shams Charania reported that Jackson will be traded to the New Orleans Pelicans.

"I love proving people wrong", Jackson said.

"To walk up on this stage, where ever we are at, is something I've always wanted to do", he said.

Lonzo Ball also threw out a first pitch on the evening for the Los Angeles Dodgers, after getting drafted second overall by the Los Angeles Lakers.

"He played with some upperclassmen, but he found a way to fit in", the Pelicans' Dell Demps said of Jackson's role at Duke. "This has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I want to take it and run with it".

The 6-foot-4 Jackson played in 36 games, including 16 starts, in his lone season at Duke.

Jackson, who will be sidelined for NBA Summer League while rehabbing from foot surgery, is expected to be ready for training camp in the fall, according to Demps.

Reaction: Derrick White played three seasons at Colorado and can play both shooting guard and point guard. I just can't wait to go out and prove it every day.

"I'm very confident in my basketball abilities", Jackson said.

New Orleans traded its first-round pick — 10th overall — to Sacramento in February as part of a trade to acquire center DeMarcus Cousins. Like I said, I think we have a lot of work to do.
