The Pelicans didn't make any noise in the opening hours of free agency as Thursday night turned to Friday morning.
Still, there were some rumblings of significance.
The Pelicans are among the teams interested in Knicks forward Lance Thomas, Yahoo's Shams Charania reported On The Vertical's live free-agency show.
Thomas, who played his first three NBA seasons with New Orleans, averaged 8.2 points and 2.2 rebounds per game this season with New York. Thomas made 44 3-pointers in 2015-16 after making seven in the first four years of his career, none in the first three.
The Pelicans also are among a group of teams showing interest in guards Jeremy Lin, Tyler Johnson and E'Twaun Moore, Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on The Vertical's live show.
Lin averaged 11.7 points and 3 assists per game this season for Charlotte. Moore averaged 7.5 points and 2.3 rebounds for Chicago. Johnson averaged 8.7 points, 3 rebounds and 2.2 assists for Miami.
One of the players expected to be a prime Pelicans target, meanwhile, might have a higher asking price than originally expected. ESPN's Zach Lowe reported on Twitter late Thursday night that teams that have inquired with the agent for Atlanta guard Kent Bazemore are under the impression that it might take $19 million to $20 million per season to sign him.
