Kira Lewis Jr.

Has Jose Alvarado made Kira Lewis Jr. expendable for the Pelicans?

Undrafted rookie Jose Alvarado has been one of the most pleasant surprises this season for the New Orleans Pelicans. I was happy when the Pels signed Alvarado to a two-way deal, as I thought his energy would help the team in practice and the offseason. I don’t think anyone envisioned him having a major role off the bench this season, but Alvarado just kept playing hard, eventually got his chance and has made the most of it.
