Notes 
  The 24 games Zion played as a rookie can easily get lost in the shuffle between New Orleans holding him out so long into the season and the chaotic spring and summer that ended in the Orlando bubble. In those 24 games, however, he was outstanding. He averaged 22.5 points and 6.3 rebounds a game, often in limited minutes. He logged a player efficiency rating (PER) of 24.1, landing him right between Nikola Jokic (24.9) and Trae Young (23.9). He should see a full allotment of minutes this season and is poised for a breakout season with the Pelicans.
