On this episode of The HoopsHype Podcast, Alex Kennedy and Frank Urbina break down the top role players who changed teams in free agency this summer. They look at a number of significant contributors and how they’ll fit with their new teams. Time-stamps are below.

5:45: Trevor Ariza joined the Phoenix Suns on a one-year, $15 million deal. They break down what this decision means for Ariza and the Suns moving forward (and whether this helps or hurts Phoenix’s young wings like Josh Jackson and Mikal Bridges).
11:57: Julius Randle joined the New Orleans Pelicans on a two-year, $18 million deal (with a player option in year two). They break down what this decision means for Randle and the Pelicans moving forward (and how Randle will fit with Anthony Davis and Nikola Mirotic in the frontcourt).
