The New Orleans Pelicans are unveiling CJ McCollum tonight against the Miami Heat.
The recent trade acquisition will find himself alongside Devonte’ Graham, Brandon Ingram, Herb Jones and Jonas Valanciunas.
There was thought that Jaxson Hayes might remain in the starting lineup, thereby pushing Graham to the bench.
Tony Snell should also make his first appearance in a New Orleans uniform. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by the 9-year veteran’s focus and accuracy in pregame warmups.

He sure looks like the guy who shot 56.9% from 3-point range last season with the Hawks! pic.twitter.com/p6snFNjzMx
Although he didn’t receive much playing time with the Trail Blazers, one can see why he was a part of the regular rotation when with the Hawks and Bucks previously.
