This year's Pelicans summer squad will include a familiar face to Cajun Nation, as former Louisiana guard Frank Bartley IV will be lacing them up for the Pels this summer.

After two years at BYU from 2013-2015, and sitting out a year upon transferring, Bartley appeared in two seasons for the Cajuns, 2017 and 2018. While with the Vermilion and White, he logged a 37% 3-point average and a 43% shooting percentage.

Bartley was named Sun Belt Conference's Newcomer of the Year in 2017, and brought home first-team All-Sun Belt honors in 2018, alongside first team All-Louisiana, Sun Belt Conference All-Tournament team, and the Pete Maravich Memorial Award.
