Well, New Orleans Pelicans fans, we’ve had a crazy few days surrounding the 4th of July holiday! First the departures: DeMarcus Cousins flew the coop for a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, and Trevor Ritchie’s favorite point guard Rajon Rondo decided to take a chance with the LeBrongeles Lakers.
Why did Cousins leave? Did the Pels truly “not make an offer?” Was Cousins’ negative behavior in Sacramento still alive in Nola? We dissect the DMC and Rondo departures, and compare those losses to their gains: Julius Randle and Elfrid Payton.
Thanks to the Pelicans fans who tweeted questions. Listen for our answers in this week’s podcast!
