With the 24th pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, the New Orleans Pelicans select RJ Hampton of the New Zealand Breakers. After the selection, the Pelicans traded his rights to the Denver Nuggets.

With Denver looking to win now, and with Nikola Jokic expected to dominate the ball again next season, don’t expect Hampton to burst right onto the scene. That said, Hampton is a speedster with promising, if not raw, playmaking abilities. In time, he should prove a capable piece off the bench and, if he can add some muscle and improve his shot, Hampton could prove a steal for Denver
