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.
