Suns offseason target free agent pool will be much smaller than anticipated

With the league unsure about anything and everything this offseason, including when the next season can even start, one thing appears to be certain: no player is walking away from huge guaranteed money in their player option for next year.

The free agent pool will be even shallower than anticipated because of the uncertainty about revenues for the 2020-21 season. NBA teams are still facing another potential year of empty arenas, which could tamp down revenues by 40% in 2021. Yet they’ve already committed a lot more than that in guaranteed salaries to many of the league’s players.
