The NBA free agency will only start on June 30 at 6pm ET, but news has already arrived from around the union.
Much of the early news is coming from New York, where experts and fans are speculating on the future of the Brooklyn Net star defender due to Kyrie Irving’s contract status. (Irving has $ 36.5 million available for the 2022-2023 season.)
Elsewhere in the NBA, next season’s player-selected superstars include James Harden ($ 47.4 million), Bradley Beal ($ 36.4 million) and Russell Westbrook ($ 47.1 million).
And which free agents will switch teams this summer? Some of the biggest names are Zach LaVine, Jalen Brunson and Deandre Ayton, who can all give a big boost to a new franchise if they choose a landscape.
Many young stars are also entitled to newcomer contract extensions. While Memphis Grizzlies and Ja Morant are absolutely certain to agree on a maximum deal, what’s the future for New Orleans Pelicans and Zion Williamson, who have played in just 85 games and missed everything in their first three seasons due to injury. 2021-22 foot fracture?
Keep it here out of season to get the latest news, updates and reports on the NBA free agency.
