New Orleans Pelicans 2013 Draft Report Card

The New Orleans Pelicans made perhaps the biggest splash outside the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets on draft night.

They acquired 23-year-old, All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Nerlens Noel, the sixth pick on Thursday, and a 2014 first-rounder.

That's a pretty steep price. Noel fell to the Pelicans at No. 6 and has more upside than Holiday, who, while an All-Star, is not in the upper echelon of NBA points.
