Trevon Bluiett Rumors
The New Orleans Pelicans have signed Trevon Bluiett to a two-way contract after the rookie guard averaged 18.3 points in four NBA Summer League games. The contract, announced by the club on Tuesday, means Bluiett will spend most of the season in the developmental G League, but can be called up periodically for a total of 45 days.
In those two games, he’s combined to make 12 of his 18 3-point attempts in just over 40 minutes of action. “He can really shoot, and I like all the shots he’s taking,” Hanson said. “That’s the biggest thing: he’s got to be concerned about his shot selection. But he’s been good.”
But he’s been able to catch and shoot with relative freedom in the New Orleans system, and he’s been burning the nets down when teams leave him open. “When you’re in college basketball, you feel like for your team you have to do more than what your NBA skill may be,” Bluiett said. “Just going out here and exposing and showing my NBA skill. … I’m a shooter, so any time I’m open and I feel like it’s a good shot, I take it.”
Trevon Bluiett, one of several former Xavier players to go undrafted on Thursday night, has agreed to play for the New Orleans Pelicans’ NBA Summer League team, according to a report via Twitter from Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News confirmed via Twitter by Xavier Basketball.
