Buddy Hield Drafted by the New Orleans Pelicans

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The dream has come true for Buddy Hield as he was just selected by the New Orleans Pelicans with the 6th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

This is really about the best case scenario for Hield as he will join all-everything Anthony Davis to provide immediate help to a team with major needs on the wing. The Pelicans are likely going to lose Eric Gordon in Free Agency, which means Hield barring something crazy will immediately start for New Orleans.

The first thing Hield said he was going to do with his money, "By his mom a house."

Pelicans fans will love this guy.
