1. Point Guard:
With Jrue Holiday hitting the free agent market, New Orleans has to either re-sign him or find a replacement at a value since the team doesn't have a ton of cap space to spend in free agency.
2. Wing Depth:
New Orleans overpaid to sign E'Twaun Moore and Solomon Hill last summer, and is paying the consequences. The Pelicans could use upgrades at both positions, but with no first-round pick and as mentioned above, limited cap space, they have to search for some bargains to bring in more talent.
3. The Boogie Man:
The Pelicans rolled the dice on trading for Cousins, hoping to pair him long term with Anthony Davis. With Boogie entering the final year of his contract, New Orleans has to try to extend him or possibly even trade him prior to the deadline if a deal appears unlikely. Either way, the Pelicans need to make sure the risk was worth it.
