The Pelicans are well represented at the Team USA mini-camp taking place in Las Vegas this week. Head coach Monty Williams and lead assistant Randy Ayers are there, along with trainer John Ishop. But all eyes are peeled on the three Pelicans players involved: Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson and new all-star acquisition Jrue Holiday.
Holiday was 4th in the league with 8 assists per game last season with Philadelphia. He can deal the cards, all right. He loves the targets he'll be working with in New Orleans. Davis, Anderson, Eric Gordon and others.
Said Holiday: "Man, all I've got to do is pass. I've got the easy part! They've got the part of shooting the ball, getting it off the board, lobs, all that. I just have to get them the ball where they want to get it."
But, the 23 year old Holiday is looking to build on his skill sets this week, including his own shot and defense.
Holiday says he's concentrating on "Being more consistent. Obviously trying to be more explosive with guys like Russell (Westbrook) and Derrick Rose out there. Be more explosive and try to stay in front of John Wall and Kyrie Irving. But also defense is a big key, especially on the team we're going to have. And there's my wide open shooting."
