E'Twaun Moore shot an insane 45% from 3 last season on 1.8 attempts per game. He's a 37% 3-point shooter over his career -- which includes stops in Boston, Orlando and Chicago -- so expect some regression, but even that is a welcome addition to a Pels team with a big need for shooting and defense.

E'Twaun Moore has reached a four-year deal with the Pelicans, his agency, Priority Sports, announced. The New Orleans Advocate reports the deal is worth $34 million with no options.

The addition of Solomon Hill in New Orleans should also help the adjustment for rookie Buddy Hield. Hill's defense and high IQ should allow Hield to thrive off spot-ups while the rest of his game comes along.

The Pelicans have reached a verbal agreement with Indiana Pacers small forward Solomon Hill, sources tell ESPN's Marc Stein. Hill, 25, established himself as quality defender last season (+0.39 DRPM) with the ability to guard positions 2-4. He's not much of a shooter at this point (32.4% from 3) but he's a tough, high-energy player with room to grow.
