#21: New Orleans Pelicans select Kyle Filipowski 

The Pelicans would love if this happened, as they need a center and Filipowski would be a perfect one to put next to Zion Williamson. 

Filipowski shot 35 percent from long range in college, so could potentially replace Jonas Valanciunas right away as a floor spacer next to Zion. 

He can rebound, is a smart player and would be difficult to stop in a pick and pop with a giant point guard who can get into the lane at will and needs space to do it.
