Stan Van Gundy had nothing but good words to say about the stars of the New Orleans Pelicans, Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson.

The new head coach of the Pelicans called Ingram and Williamson ‘two of the most unique young guys’ in the NBA.

“You’ve got two of the most unique young guys in the entire league, (including) Brandon Ingram, who’s the most improved player in the league. He’s one of those really tall, long guys who plays like a point guard, who can get to anywhere on the floor and score the ball.”

I don’t even know the comparison for Zion Williamson. He’s unique in the way he plays, but this is a guy coming off an injury for most of the year that was able to be extremely productive and efficient.

There’s just not people like that. There’s a lot to build around there,” Van Gundy said, via Jim Eichenhofer of NBA.com.

For his part, Van Gundy wants to work with the young core of New Orleans and help the team reach the playoffs next season.
