Today the news finally broke that most New Orleans Pelicans fans have expected since free agency began: Josh Hart has been re-signed.
Adrian Wojnarowski announced the deal today on Twitter:
In four professional seasons, Hart has averaged 9.2 points, 1.6 assists, and 5.4 rebounds in just 26 minutes.
Last season in New Orleans, Hart posted a career-best 8 rebounds per game, which was much needed in smaller lineups.
He’s sure to be a significant part of the Pels rotation this year, adding to an already flexible wing lineup.
