Former ASU forward Zylan Cheatham on Friday for the New Orleanes Pelicans. After he and former guard Luguentz Dort, who is now with the Oklahoma City Thunder, went undrafted, both are playing in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
Cheatham played 17 minutes for the Pelicans against the New York Knicks. He had six points, eight rebounds and one crazy chase down block featured in the tweet below.
