Whether or not Roberts' team option is picked up depends on how the ping pong balls fall Tuesday, The Times-Picayune reports. (Rotowire.com)
Recommendation: The Pelicans are currently projected for the fifth pick in the draft, which could land them Michigan's Trey Burke. If the Pelicans think they will get Burke-the top point guard in the draft-, then Roberts isn't a necessity for the roster, despite his strong season. Of course, the Pelicans could also decide point guard isn't a need and they could look for a small forward, like Georgetown's Otto Porter.
