Also on the dial, the duo delve into the hole the Pelicans seem committed to filling at point guard, talking about who they like from Rajon Rondo, Darren Collison, Derrick Rose to other cheap candidates. Should New Orleans re-sign Dante Cunningham? Are there certain minimum type players that should be on Dell Demps radar like Terrence Jones in the last free agency? Does the team consider going into the luxury tax? And lastly, what to look for in the upcoming Las Vegas Summer League!
