Hield feeling the heat in New Orleans, and liking it

METAIRIE, La. (AP) When Buddy Hield flew into south Louisiana on Friday to begin his NBA career, among the first things he noticed was how hot it was - and he had no complaints.

"As soon as I came off the plane, it felt hot, it reminded me of home," said Hield, who grew up in the Bahamas. "It's the same feeling, a feeling I'm used to."

The 6-foot-4 Hield also got used to putting up a lot of shots from the perimeter - and making them - when he was leading Oklahoma to the NCAA Final Four last season. He'll be expected do that and more as a pro with the Pelicans, who made Hield the NBA's sixth overall draft pick Thursday night.
