Hornets trade 31st pick Frank Jackson to Pelicans

Hornets trade 31st pick Frank Jackson to Pelicans”

This year, it appeared the pattern might continue. The No. 10 overall recruit by ESPN in 2016, Jackson averaged 28.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists as a senior en route to KSL Game Night Live player of the year, Deseret News Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Utah Player of the Year honors.

Dressed in a stylish maroon suit, he sat patiently in the stands at the Barclays Center with his parents and agent by his side. "It's been a lifelong dream and goal of mine and I saw it front of my eyes and I wanted to go and take it".

The New Orleans Pelicans traded up to the top of the second round in an attempt to bring in potential back-court help for a lineup featuring the All-Star tandem of power forward Anthony Davis and centre DeMarcus Cousins. According to David Aldridge of TNT, the Pelicans agreed to a deal with the Charlotte Hornets, with New Orleans receiving the draft rights to Duke guard Frank Jackson.

Jackson probably had not hoped to fall out of the first round, yet when he took to the podium in Brooklyn, you could not wipe the smile off his face if you tried.

"I've been nervous for the past week", Jackson said. People can expect me to be a fierce competitor, someone who can lead a team, get out and defend, and play my game. He only played one year at Duke but I averaged 11 points in 36 games as a freshman.

So where does Jackson fit in with New Orleans?

New Orleans traded its first-round pick - 10th overall - to Sacramento in February as part of a trade to acquire Cousins. As it turned out, New Orleans didn't possess the pick for long, getting it from the Washington Wizards in exchange for point guard Tim Frazier on Wednesday night. Jackson will join former Duke point guard Quinn Cook as they look to make the 2017-18 roster. "I really think he's going to have an opportunity to be a really good player for the Pelicans".

In Jackson, the Pelicans get a guard with size and scoring ability.

"It's going to teach me a lot, and allow me to play off those guys and learn from them", Jackson told the national media.
