New Orleans Pelicans general manager Dell Demps traveled to Washington on Friday to get a thorough evaluation of Indiana shooting guard Victor Oladipo, league sources confirmed.

Oladipo's draft stock appears to be dropping and he could be available when the Pelicans select at No. 6 in next Thursday's NBA draft. Oladipo, 6 feet 4, 213 pounds, was projected to be a top five pick, but some updated mock drafts now have him going as low as seventh to the Sacramento Kings.

Oladipo is an exceptional defender, a great leaper and extremely quick. Some teams, however, have concerns about his ability to defend taller shooting guards. Oladipo averaged 13.6 points and 6.3 rebounds this past season for Indiana.
