Mr. October

"You know what Reemer, someday I'm going to own a big sports bar."

Made famous by the movie BASEketball, Reggie Jackson has found his way to New Orleans. ( or is that his baseballer hall of fame  name sake? )

I spent a lot of time working the phones, trying to create a bit of noise down in the big easy. Which of my recently drafted rookies are playing, which free agents am i targeting, will i even have enough players to field a team??. So i thought why not grab yet another guard off one of the opposition.

The Trade was simple, budding prospect Jalil Okafor out, Current Pelican franchise player Reggie Jackson in.

Slotting into the starting Point or Shooting guard spot, we are hoping Reggie can take the reigns for a playoff push. After a down year last year being on and off with injury, the front office is sure it was an anomaly and he can bounce back to his best form, as he only played in 52 games.

I asked myself for a comment. "I think Reggie will come back and be as good as or better than he was two years ago. I honestly do. There were a lot of things that were physically and mentally difficult for him to handle. Yes he missed a few games through injury. He’s committed to changing those things. He’s a talented guy and he’ll be really good next year, I have full confidence in him."

With Brandon Knight possibly out for the season (more on that later), a heavy workload looks to be on the cards for Jackson
But with free agency coming up, and a few handy players already on the roster. The potential is certainly there for the pelicans to make some noise.

"Ya know sometimes I forget why I play the game. I do it because of Mr. October."
