With (Austin) Rivers showing improvement last season as a second-year guard, the Pelicans still consider Rivers a valuable asset, according to sources. It apparently turned out to be a deciding factor on why they didn’t trade him, despite listening to offers.

”You have to admit that he has really improved his game,” Pelicans coach Monty Williams said at the end of last season. “He’s improved his shot. He finishes at the basket better than he did last year. His free-throw percentage came up. It’s not where we want it, but it came up.”
