NBA Free Agents - Best Options Left for the Pelicans

Andre Iguodola - Why not? Bring him in and this team will be top 5 in the Western Conference going into next season. Trade EG10 for him in another sign and trade deal, we are still top 8 and make the playoffs. Igo is that good to our team.

Cole Aldrich - Cheap deal would be able to sign him and start him off at Center or backup AD at the 5. Has never had a chance to show the NBA his true skills yet.

JJ Hickson - 6'9" beast of a man. Averaged a double double last season and only played 29 Mins a game. Could be useful coming off the bench as part of a three big man rotation with AD and Aldrich.

Those are the 3 I can see us chasing and making it work.

What else ya'll got? (Oh and I don't have a Masters in the NBA salary cap so if I am making bad calls based off of that, please call me out, I think we should be able to sign these three guys)

I'd like to see Corey Brewer or Dorrell Wright brought in as a SF. Just need a FA center with a pulse right now. We can get our center another year.

Like him too because he brings the Defense we will need but his price will keep us away.

Dorrell Wright


See above.

Carlos Delfino is you want a shooter.

44% and 40% from each corner 3 spot last year on 123 attempts total.

Samuel Dalembert for defensive rebounding.

Aldrich is about as shitty as they come.

Dalembert was 8th in the NBA in rebounding rate last season.

13th the year before....

11th the year before that..

4th the year before that..

5th the year before that......

You get the point. If rebounding is what you are lacking, I dont see how anyone could hate that pickup if it happened.

We just need a C who can rebound & play D. They could literally avg 2.0 ppg and I'd be fine.

Aminu is who we should look at for the 3 position. He wants to stay here and we can probably keep him for cheap. As for a center, I think we should just get someone cheap who can rebound and defend decently. Zaza or someone like that, we already have enough scoring.

Rebounding and outside shooting are the 2 big holes left to fill so I like your suggestions of Delfino and Dalembert. Wanna try to go get a meeting with Demps?

So you'd take Aldrich over Dalembert? And we ain't getting Hickson or Igoudala.

My plan, keep Aminu and sign Dalembert.

All I am saying is that he is too costly. We can find someone cheaper if all we need is rebounding.

Otherwise, we would have kept Lopez.

Examply, Nikola Pekovic would be a better fit than Dalembert. He is younger and brings in 9 RPG at half the price.

With Aminu and Dalembert we still need a shooter do we keep Mason around or find that elsewhere like Delfino?

Dalembert and Brewer seem ideal since I learned that ingles isn't close to being a starter. Hope Darius develops defensively. Smart player.

Bring in Copeland with our exception. Shot 42% from three so that takes care of any deficiency with long range shooting.
