The Clippers have a new backcourt duo.

Kentucky point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was the 11th pick of the NBA draft by Charlotte Brian Urlacher Bears Jersey , who traded him to the Clippers on Thursday night. The Clippers had drafted forward Miles Bridges of Michigan State with the 12th overall pick and sent Bridges and two future second-round picks to the Hornets for Gilgeous-Alexander. LA also picked Boston College guard Jerome Robinson.

Gilgeous-Alexander feels he’s a good fit for the Clippers.

”I feel like they don’t have an alpha dog point guard right now and a guy that brings ultimate leadership to the group,” Gilgeous-Alexander said on a conference call. ”I feel that’s one of my biggest attributes and what I bring to the table.”

Robinson, the 13th pick, said he thinks the NBA is going for versatility and that suits him. ”I think I can bring being a shot-maker at three levels, a playmaker, a guy that can guard and play multiple positions,” Robinson said.

Jerome and Gilgeous-Alexander could be the future of the Clippers backcourt one day.

”I think (Robinson) is a fabulous talent,” Gilgeous-Alexander said. ”Everyone in the country knows how well he shoots it. What they don’t know is his playmaking ability as well. Playing with him would be super fun, and I can’t wait.”

Gilgeous-Alexander said he watched a lot of Chris Paul in the pick-and-roll system, James Harden and Patrick Beverley in trying to make himself an all-around player. Now he’ll be suiting up for Paul’s former team.

Gilgeous-Alexander grew up in Canada and played for the Canadian Junior National Team. He played high school basketball in Tennessee and one season at Kentucky.

At Kentucky, Gilgeous-Alexander averaged 14.4 points, 5.1 assists and 1.6 steals.

He said he was looking forward to going against Beverley in practice and learning from what he does defensively.

”It’s a great feeling Jamal Adams Jersey Youth ,” Gilgeous-Alexander said. ”Just being able to play in the NBA, first and foremost. You feel like you fit well and somewhere you want to go to, so it’s an even better feeling right now.”

Robinson was an unheralded recruit out of high school in Raleigh, North Carolina, and he stayed in school for three years. Last year with the Eagles, he averaged 20.7 points per game and improved his NBA stock.

He’s not new to Los Angeles, either. Robinson spent last summer working out with other NBA players like Russell Westbrook and Emmanuel Mudiay before returning to Boston College for his final season.

”It was unbelievable. It was life-changing going against some of the best competition in the world,” Robinson said. ”There’s nothing like it. It was an amazing feeling.”

The Clippers went into the draft with the idea of getting the best players available.

”Super, super excited to add two high-character competitive, tough, high-IQ players,” said Lawrence Frank Clay Matthews Packers Jersey , executive vice president of basketball operations. ”That’s how we identify what a Clipper is. Both of these guys are great representatives of who we are and the direction we’re going.”



Anthony Davis wasn’t willing to call the New Orleans Pelicans‘ season a success.

Not that Davis dismissed the determination, grit and growing chemistry the Pelicans showed in the way they adjusted to a season-ending injury to fellow All-Star DeMarcus Cousins.

New Orleans exceeded expectations by getting to the postseason and sweeping third-seeded Portland . Then came a second-round matchup with defending champion Golden State, and the Pelicans were reminded why bringing back a player of Cousins’ caliber could be crucial to going farther next season. The Warriors needed only five games to end New Orleans’ season.

”Any time you don’t win a championship, I don’t see how it could be successful,” Davis said. ”We can take a lot of positive things from the season. Of course, one of our main guys went out and everybody doubted us. Everybody counted us out and we were able to keep fighting, keep pushing as a unit and able to come this far.”

This offseason could go a long way in determining if they go any farther.

Not only is Cousins a free agent, but so is assists maestro Rajon Rondo . Further complicating matters is that Cousins’ injury – a torn Achilles – has been a historically difficult one from which to come back. So the Pelicans’ faith could be tested if Cousins declines to take less than the maximum he can get under the NBA’s current collective bargaining agreement.

Also, Rondo and Cousins are friends. Bringing back one could raise the prospects of keeping the other.

Rondo, who averaged 10.3 points, 12.2 assists and 7.6 rebounds in the postseason, asserted that bringing back Cousin will be ”very important.”

Cousins averaged 25.2 points and 12.9 rebounds in 48 games Tyron Smith Cowboys Jersey , during which New Orleans went 27-21. But the Pelicans assert that when Cousins went down, they only beginning to figure out the most effective way to play with him and Davis in the lineup together. As evidence, they pointed to the fact that they won seven of the last eight games Cousins played, including a victory at Boston and a home triumph over Houston.

”We felt like, you know, we were able to play against the elite teams in the league,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. ”We felt great about it, and then he got hurt and we struggled for four or five games.”

Once the Pelicans adjusted to life without Cousins, they shot up from sixth in the NBA in pace of play to first, with Rondo pushing the ball up the court and using his precision passing to put Davis, Jrue Holiday and mid-season trade acquisition Nikola Mirotic in prime positions.

The Pelicans won their final five regular season games to finish as the sixth seed in the highly competitive Western Conference, and Gentry was informed the team was picking up his option for next season.

While Rondo couldn’t promise he’ll be back Deion Sanders Jersey , he made it clear his affection for many on the roster grew considerably this season.

”Can’t say enough about this group – a group of men that came together and found a way to sacrifice for one another and try to come with a common goal,” Rondo said. ”I love our chemistry.”

The Pelicans played so well at times that Gentry found himself answering questions about whether the Pelicans might be better without Cousins. Gentry called that notion ”ludicrous.” He also said, ”It goes without saying” that the Pelicans want Cousins back.

If Cousins and Rondo both return, and team chemistry continues growing, the Pelicans could blossom into a team with the requisite combination of size and skill to punish teams like the Warriors which thrive on ”small ball.”

In any event, Davis’ ability to carry the team in Cousins’ absence only elevated his status as an elite player. He posted averages of 28.1 points, 11.1 assists and 2.6 blocks.

Meanwhile, playing more shooting guard than point guard seemed to suit Holiday, who averaged a career-best 19 points per game this season.

And for at least three more seasons, the Pelicans will have both Davis and Holiday under contract.

”We feel like we’re headed in the right direction as a franchise,” Gentry said.
