With the owners and players preparing for a June return but fearing the worst, free agent season may be on us sooner than expected.

It’s far too early to know the full effects of the novel coronavirus on the NBA or the world in general, but there will certainly be ripple effects felt in every aspect of NBA life.

This will include the salary cap, which will undoubtedly be affected if the season has to be shortened or canceled completely.

With so much up in the air, it is impossible to know how much cap space each team will have, or when free agency will even occur.

That’s why we’re using some rules when previewing free agents for the New Orleans Pelicans. Here’s a recap:

  1. Unrestricted free agents only. There are too many moving parts to know how any of this will play out, but restricted free agency is always tricky.
  2. I’ll try to choose one free agent from the “premium” crop and one from a lower tier.
  3. Money is not an object at this point. The New Orleans Pelicans will likely be capped out if they extend Brandon Ingram and don’t make a trade, but for these purposes, money will be more of an abstract concept.

In the second installment of our series, we’ll take a look at two players who are on the opposite ends of the NBA career spectrum.

One is a gritty veteran who is a proven winner and another is a young guy with potential who still hasn’t found his way in the league.

Without further delay, here is the second installment of potential free agents for the New Orleans Pelicans.
