2013 NBA Free Agency Open Thread

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

We're minutes away from the start of the NBA free agency period. The Pelicans have been linked to numerous names just in the past week: Chris Copeland, Kevin Martin, Chase Budinger and Andre Iguodala.

It's definitely a much different feeling than we've had in over several years. Usually, we've been the shy, quiet kid sitting in the back of the room, but this year we're sprinting to the head of the class! It appears the Jrue Holiday trade was just the first step of at least several Dell Demps and the rest of the organization have planned to unleash this off-season.

Currently, twitter is loaded with messages of the Pelicans in hot pursuit of Tyreke Evans. Per David Aldridge:

As reported, Pelicans will meet with Tyreke Evans late tonight. Told they will have an offer sheet in hand--a big one.

Everyone pull up a chair, it looks like Demps is about to keep dealing.

UPDATE #1, Per Marc Stein:

While NO will make big offer tonight, sources close to SAC Tyreke Evans say he will do his due diligence with long list & Kings still in mix
