Moments ago it was announced that former Alabama star basketball player John Petty Jr. was signed by the New Orleans Pelicans.

Petty Jr., played four seasons at Alabama in which he averaged 11.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 131 games. He finished his career with a school-record 311 made 3-pointers. Petty Jr. is coming off of a senior campaign where he earned First Team All-SEC honors. Petty Jr. led the SEC with 77 made threes during the 2020-21 season.

The Pelicans have apparently fallen in love with former Alabama standouts, as Petty Jr. makes three former Tide players that are currently on the Pelicans roster.

New Orleans selected Kira Lewis Jr. with the 13th overall selection in the 2020 NBA draft. Then earlier this year the Pelicans selected Herbert Jones with the 35th overall pick in the 2021 NBA draft.

If you are looking for an NBA team to root for, the Pelicans may be your best bet!
