The 2021 NBA free agency features some players that can be very impactful if they land in the right franchise. Several teams will try to bolster their squad this offseason trying to return to the playoff, setting their eyes on talented players. 

The New Orleans Pelicans and Chicago Bulls are two teams with young talent that haven't made it to the postseason in recent years. This season that can change if they pull off two big moves and land two interesting point guards. 

Talking on NBA TV, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports revealed that Lonzo Ball is all-in about working on a contract with the Chicago Bulls, while the New Orleans Pelicans will move on from him and try to get Kyle Lowry in free agency. 

These two squads are ready to reach the next level and compete in their respective conferences. The Bulls couldn't get the job done with Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic. Lonzo could be the piece they need to make it to the big party. 

As for the Pelicans, they decided to build around Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram, so keeping Lonzo wouldn't be the best option for them. Although they extended an offer to Ball, it's unlikely that the player will stay in NOLA. 

Lowry is out of the Toronto Raptors after becoming the best player in franchise history, trying to find a new challenge in the league. He's been linked with other teams like the Philadelphia 76ers, but now the Pels could make a surprising move for the veteran point guard. 

This free agency can bring many emotions to fans, and these two stories will get a lot of attention.
