NBA Free Agency: Latest Buzz and Intel Around the League

Latest rumblings ahead of the (ahem) official start of free agency Thursday night…

  • Let’s start here: don’t count on superstar movement in the next few days. Rival executives expect Bradley Beal to re-sign with Washington on a five-year max contract, Zach LaVine appears headed back to Chicago and James Harden and the Sixers seem to be on the same page on a three-year deal that will give Philadelphia the flexibility to pursue frontcourt help—with Heat forward P.J. Tucker atop Daryl Morey’s wish list.

  • As has been widely reported, Dallas is bracing for a significant offer from the Knicks for free agent to be Jalen Brunson, a move New York has been telegraphing, shedding the contracts of Kemba Walker, Nerlens Noel and Alec Burks (thanks, Detroit).
