New Orleans Pelicans GM Trajan Langdon has a reputation for recognizing NBA difference maker talent overseas. Will Nicolo Melli strengthen that rep?

Melli has agreed to a two year contract with New Orleans, according to a report from Andrew Lopez.

The 6-foot-9, 235-pounder has shot 42.1% (131-for-311) from beyond the arc in his last 4 years seasons in the EuroLeague.

He began playing professionally in Europe 12 years ago at the age of 16.
