New Orleans guard Brian Roberts is blowing everyone away at the free-throw line, where he has knocked down 120 of 127 attempts for a scorching 94.5 percent. Roberts will be a restricted free agent, and his all-around solid season may force the Pelicans to ante up.
Roberts is 28 but in just his second NBA season (both with New Orleans). He went undrafted out of the University of Dayton in 2008, then bounced around Israel and Germany before landing in the NBA. His productivity has several league sources believing that second-year guard Austin Rivers could be dealt come summer.
