Graham, who was the No. 34 overall pick back in 2018, is receiving a four-year contract worth $47 million upon arrival in New Orleans.
The New Orleans Pelicans are landing Charlotte restricted free agent guard Devonte Graham on a four-year, $47M contract in a sign-and-trade deal, agents Ty Sullivan and Austin Brown of @CAA_Basketball tell ESPN.

The deal will reportedly send a 2022 first-round pick back to Charlotte in exchange for Graham.
The young guard averaged 14.8 points and 5.4 assists while shooting just above 37% from the field and beyond the arc. The Pelicans have certainly been in need of a solid shooter alongside Brandon Ingram with Zion Williamson dominating the paint.
Graham may be able to fit that role and see himself be the ball-handler in certain situations as well.
