After going undrafted, Arizona State forward Zylan Cheatham will sign a two-way contract with the New Orleans Pelicans, a source told ESPN's Jonathan Givony.

Cheatham started all 34 games for the Sun Devils this past season after redshirting following his transfer from San Diego State. He led the Pac-12 in rebounding and also threw down what was perhaps the NCAA's dunk of the year on Oregon in January.

What the analysts are saying

  • "He's a plus athlete who is versatile on defense, with the length to defend inside and on the perimeter, and is a strong positional rebounder at either forward spot." - Jeremy Woo, Sports Illustrated
  • "Poor shooter with ugly mechanics even after changing his form. Defenses won't pay attention to him when he's spotting up." - Kevin O'Connor, The Ringer
