Brown's decline is the most noticeable, going from a slightly positive offensive player to one of the worst in the league by RPM's estimation. "He's definitely a tone-setter".

The 6-foot-10 big man is averaging 27.0 points, 12.8 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game. This year, teams can't wait to play us.

Davis has two years left on his contract with the Pelicans - with a player option to leave the team after the 2019-20 season.

Smart made a tangible impact with his time, too, pestering the Pelicans into countless turnovers (the Celtics scored a season-best 32 points off turnovers in the win), and finished his night with eight points, five assists, and a plus-12 rating.

"We've got to get our identity back".

"I feel like the season is kind of like a rollercoaster", guard Jrue Holiday said. It's uncertain whether he'll play against the Celtics. Of the potential landing spots, National Basketball Association analyst Chris Mannix has now claimed that the Celtics are the clear front-runners due to the fact that the franchise has the most assets that can be used in a trade for Davis. That gives Stevens plenty of time to think about his starting five, which he says will be ever-evolving throughout the season. "We have to get that swagger back".
