Rumors

Restricted free agent Kristaps Porzingis and the Dallas Mavericks will meet when free agency opens on June 30 and the franchise plans to offer Porzingis a full five-year, $158 million maximum contract. - @ShamsCharania

The Los Angeles Lakers would look to sign JR Smith if he is traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers and becomes a free agent. - ChrisBHaynes

We can scratch “stealth.” Boston and Dallas are at the front of the line that will be trying to lure Kemba Walker away from Charlotte. - @TheSteinLine

Houston’s priority for free agency, league sources tell ESPN: Pursue a sign-and-trade for Sixers All-Star Jimmy Butler. -@wojespn

Kevin Durant returning to the Golden State Warriors is still very much alive. Both sides have had conversations. - @wojespn

Klay Thompson has not been told he’ll get the max from the Golden State Warriors. Los Angeles Clippers are an alternative destination, especially if Kawhi Leonard heads to the Clippers. - @wojespn

“Brooklyn’s in a great position here to get a commitment from Kyrie Irving and then use that to pursue KD or perhaps another free agent.” - @wojespn

Brooklyn Nets would prefer to not max out Jimmy Butler or Tobias Harris. - @wojespn

It’s a two team race for Kawhi Leonard those teams being the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Clippers. - @wojespn/ESPN

Milwaukee Bucks likely sign Middleton/Brogdon and Lopez or Middleton and Lopez. Khris Middleton “they can’t afford to lose, he’ll receive the 5-year max.” They may lose Malcolm Brogdon depending on price range. - @wojespn/@zachlowe_NBA

Al Horford leaving Boston means he surely has an offer of 4 years, over $100 million out on the market waiting. - @wojespn/@zachlowe_NBA

DeMarcus Cousins pay may vary but he’ll be the third or fourth option for a lot of teams who strike out on bigger names. - @wojespn

Los Angeles Lakers are seriously considering D’Angelo Russell free agency, “rooting for Irving to sign with Brooklyn”. If the Lakers were to spread out their money, Terrance Ross and Darren Collison would be two to watch. - @wojespn

Other

Portland Trail Blazers have given forward Jake Layman his qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent. -@wojespn
