1. Lonzo Ball
The NOLA Bayou is a far cry from the bright LA lights, which is perfect for Lonzo Ball. Ball came in with immense expectations, and like D’Angelo Russell, can thrive with a change of scenery as a former No. 2 overall pick. Zo hounds his opponents on defense while also possessing impressive athleticism. With Jrue Holiday as a mentor and Zion Williamson as a lob target, showtime for Lonzo could be in New Orleans.
2. Miles Bridges
Miles Bridges made everyone aware of his incredible athleticism during Summer League play when he threw down a vicious windmill after euro-stepping to the basket. Well, on a dismal Hornets roster, Bridges will be given every opportunity to prove he's not just some freak athlete, and will showcase his true talents to the league. After averaging 21.2 minutes of run last year, there's no reason Bridges isn't on the floor for at least 30 in 2019-20.
3. Caris LeVert
This one is cheating a little since Caris LeVert was well on his way to a breakout season before suffering a gruesome leg injury in November
