After Saturday’s practice, Mirotic – who split his 39 total Pelicans games last season between starting (20 times) and coming off the bench (19) – reiterated that he’s fine with the arrangement. “We are all here to do what’s best for the team,” the smoothing-shooting forward/center said. “If I start one day, good. If Julius starts, great also. We just need to do what is best for the team. Each night is going to be a different matchup.”
“I remember last season when I first got here, some of the games I would start, some of the games not,” Mirotic said. “It’s not a big deal. Most important is the minutes, and the quality of the minutes I’m going to play. When I’m on the court, I have to bring the energy and play smart. We can accomplish a lot with each other, Julius, AD and me. We can play together at the 4 or 5. I think we’re going to be a big problem for the rest of the teams. I’m not worried about our roles.”
