Murray

Murray trade to ATL

The San Antonio Spurs made headlines by trading away their best player and their only All-Star since Kawhi Leonard left. Dejounte Murray has been dealt to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for three first round picks to link the star guard with Trae Young. The Hawks made the Eastern Conference Finals two seasons ago, but their lack of depth was evident over the course of this year as they snuck into the playoffs and were knocked out in the first round.

Top free agent deals ever

There have been historic, tectonic shifting deals made in the free agent market over the years. LeBron has been makes up quite a chunk of those historic deals, while the big fella moving west turned the league on it’s head. Steve Nash was a comeback kid turned MVP when he went to Phoenix, and Kevin Durant signed on to an upcoming dynasty that would go on to make three finals and win two of them.

Difference between restricted and unrestricted

There is a lot of lingo and a lot of terminology that is unfamiliar to the common basketball fan. There are restricted free agents, and unrestricted free agents hitting the market today. Restricted free agents can explore the market, and be offered top dollar but if their original team can match that offer to keep them.

Unrestricted free agents have the liberty to explore the market with no ties to their original team. If they like the offer the original team they can stay, but if they are lured away by a big money offer, then there is nothing the former team can do to keep that player there.

Beal declines $36.4 option

Bradley Beal is another super star that could be on the verge of moving. He has spent the last decade in the nation’s capital and now may be looking for a new project where he could have a chance to fight for a championship, but if he joins a team stacked with stars that could contend for a title, that would most likely mean a substantial pay cut. He could also stay on with the Wizards on a long term deal.

Hardne

Harden declines $47.3 million

James Harden has played for three different teams over the last two seasons and it looks like he might be on the move yet again. He declined his $47.4 million player option, and will dip his toes in the market and evaluate the possibilities. There are talks of him still staying with the Sixers, but restructuring his deal to build a winning team around his and Embiid.

Brunson

Brunson one of top targets

The world was introduced to Jalen Brunson during this post season when he took the Mavs on his shoulders and carried them to victory during a few playoff games. His stock sky rocketed especially in the games when Luka Doncic was injured and Dallas needed someone to fill his shoes. The New York Knicks are said to be the most interested team, but the Mavs have the cap space to match their offer, it all depends on where Brunson wants to play.

Teams with most cap space

Most of the teams that have the most cap space are teams from small markets that ended up at the bottom of the standings last season. In this era of super teams it’s hard for the smaller market teams to draw super stars to come join, so don’t be surprised if the teams on this list don’t get any of the big names in the draft.

1 - Detroit Pistons
2 - San Antonio Spurs
3 - Orlando Magic
4 - Indiana Pacers
5 - New York Knicks

Player options for Russ and Kyrie

Russell Westbrook has signed on for another year in Los Angeles after signing his $47.1 million player-option. The former MVP and two time scoring champ had a rough first season in LA, but is looking for redemption. The fans at Crypto.com Arena were not shy in letting Westbrook know when he wasn’t playing well, and him staying is a sign of his belief in the project and his desire to shine under the bright lights of Hollywood.

Kyrie Irving also elected to stay in Brooklyn with a $36.5 million player option after speculation that he was on his way out. Irving was unable to play the first half of the season due to COVID restrictions in the state of New York, and the Nets decided not to let him practice or play with the team until the turn of the New Year. Brooklyn brought in a team to win the title, and still have a team capable of competing, but will now have a new look with James Harden gone and Ben Simmons in.

The KD news has thrown Kyrie's future into the flames, and Brooklyn now could lose both of their super stars and be left with Ben Simmons.
