For episode six, Preston Ellis, Kevin Barrios and Jamile Dunn concentrate on the most recent happenings in NBA free agency including that eye-popping Tim Hardaway Jr. contract offer from the New York Knicks plus a look back at what possibly went wrong with the Nick Young potential signing.

The trio also discuss at length some remaining enviable free agent targets for the Pelicans, which include C.J. Miles and Nikola Mirotic, and possible dos and please-for-heavens-sake don’ts in the trade market... we’re looking at you, Reggie Jackson.

With so much spending in the summer of 2016, teams have seemingly been more reserved during this latest edition of free agency. Could that be a good thing moving forward for the Pelicans, say when it comes time to re-sign DeMarcus Cousins next year?

Lastly, the guys make an argument for the New Orleans organization to keep John Wall in the back of their minds. With how Anthony Davis and Cousins have bonded, it’s fair to say one of Boogie’s best friends in the NBA might also welcome joining forces in New Orleans. Not to read too much into the situation, but it’s hard to not notice John Wall has yet to agree to a super-max extension with the Washington Wizards.
