The New Orleans Pelicans will re-sign free agent forward Dante Cunningham, who opted out of a deal with the team earlier this offseason.
We first speculated New Orleans would want to bring back Cunningham after the news broke that Solomon Hill will miss significant time in the upcoming season due to an injury.
Cunningham will sign a one-year, $2.3 million deal for the league’s veteran minimum. He was originally not interested in signing for this type of deal.
His signing keeps the Pelicans payroll just under the luxury tax for next year.
