Wade has admitted that he doesn't feel like a retired player just yet, even though he already decided to end his NBA career last season. The three-time champion is now doing what some ex-NBA players are doing every summer, help the younger guys in the league improve.
Hart, who was traded to the Pelicans a couple of months ago, is expected to play an important role for the team this upcoming season. As one of the main guys off the bench, he needs to make sure that he's able to provide consistent numbers on a nightly basis, something that he hasn't been able to do in his first two seasons in the league.
During his rookie season with the Los Angeles Lakers back in 2017, Hart showed flashes of becoming a great two-way player. He's a scrappy individual who isn't afraid to do all the little things for the team. However, he struggled last season when he was relegated to being a spot-up shooter in an offensive system that revolves around LeBron James.
Hart is hoping to turn things around this season, and with Wade's help, he might be able to do just that. However, another concern about him is his ability to stay healthy. Last season, he had a nagging knee injury that caused him to be in and out of the Lakers' rotation. If he's already 100 percent heading into next season, then he will give the Pelicans a much-needed boost.
