Congratulations to Javon Bess for making the cut into  the 2019-2020 Pelicans team. We wish you all the best.

he has not made the cut yet.   i believe they have 5 players to cut yet.

Not to be negative but I would think the fact that he didn't play in a blow out is not a good sign. Just hope that it was predetermined what subs would play that night.

thought i read they are only allowed to dress 15?   i didnt see the game, so dont know if he was dressed out or not.   

i do agree not good sign he didnt play, however, it is my understanding he is likely to get a g league pelican offer if he doesnt make the final roster for the pelicans regular season.   sticking around for that?

Tonight's Pelicans game is on ESPN, hopefully Bess will get some playing time to show what he can contribute.

The Zion effect means 4 of their 5 preseason games will be on national TV.

I dk how Bess has a shot at making the team without playing.  G-League bound I guess?

probably.  Idk how the nba works at all, do teams normally keep a random defender on the bench?

Roy, it is up to Bess to  decide what and when to do whatever it is he does. He is level headed, works hard, is liked by the team and not money hungry or self centered, all qualities known to  the team. He sees some advantage in staying where he is at this time.

via a pelicans message board.  They said the last two spots available have been taken by Frank jackson and Okafor.  Bess is all but done in NO.

Most of the players have guaranteed contracts.  It would have been extremely hard to make the Pelicans roster.  Either they needed some extra bodies for training camp or perhaps they envision Bess as a G League candidate with potential to make the team at a later time.

Deciding between the G league or European/Australian league would be a tough decision.

Do you stay with the NBA brand and bring home 35,000 a year or do you head over seas and make double or triple that?

I’m sure players see the G league as being right on the doorstep of the NBA but are your chances of getting the call any better there than in Europe?

If you become a star in Europe the NBA will know and will find you no matter the league you are in.

I’m not sure what the better option is.

If you're as close to making it as Bess appears to be, I think you stick with the G League for a year or two and see what pans out.

Ya.  If you dont get a shot in your first 2 years, you probably never will.  Go to Europe after.

I could see Javon playing for a national team as a naturalized player

Yes they are better.

 

That being said, I'd still go overseas because your chances aren't great for either.

If you have an Affiliate contract with a NBA team, participate in their training camp and preseason, and play for their G team, the player is eligible for up to a $50k bonus through the Exhibit 10 clause.

I figured they’d be a little better but I’m with you I’d head overseas.

Bess played 7 min and scored 2 on 1-3 tonight in a narrow Pelican preseason win.

Hit the game winner

In full disclosure, his bucket was on a defensive goal tending call at the buzzer.
