Agreements in Principle

  • Klay Thompson
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Klay Thompson and the Warriors still have their agreement on a five-year, $190 million max contract, according to Marc Stein.

    It was assumed that Thompson and the Warriors would reach their agreement quickly, but the fact that nothing has come out yet may have had some people second-guessing. Thompson never seemed likely to leave Golden State and he will not be departing this summer, even if an announcement has taken longer than expected.

  • Mike Muscala
    PF, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Mike Muscala has reached an agreement with the Thunder, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    No terms of the deal have been released. The Thunder were hoping that Patrick Patterson would be their stretch four but it hasn't worked out, so Muscala will try and step in to fill that void. He also provides some extra rim protection, and deep-league fantasy owners should keep him in mind should Steven Adams suffer any injuries. The stat set has always been there but the playing time hasn't.

  • Ed Davis
    PF, Utah Jazz

    Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that Ed Davis has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Jazz.

    Davis is a workhorse and a solid backup PF for the Jazz. He adds a touch of extra rebounding "oomf" off the bench as well. Unfortunately, Davis' fantasy value is still in the deep-league zone as a rebounding specialist.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    DeAndre Jordan has agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal with the Nets.

    Brooklyn got commitments from Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan tonight, making them the clear winners of free agency (on paper). This deal will take Jordan through age-34, and he'll likely split the center minutes with Jarrett Allen. It's going to hurt the fantasy prospects of both players but the Nets will no longer be overmatched against big-bodied centers and have someone who can tilt the rebounding scales in their favor. Both Irving and Durant are reportedly taking small paycuts to get Jordan his $10 million annually, which is a nice start in terms of team-building. Michael Scotto of The Athletic is reporting that the deal is fully guaranteed, so there are no options at play.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford is taking his game to the Sixers after agreeing to sign a four-year deal worth $109 million, as per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The Sixers busted out the checkbook on this one for sure, especially since it's for an aging albeit talented big man like Horford. That said, his on-court savvy and experience should go a long way towards keeping the Sixers highly competitive in the East.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler will sign a four-year, $142 million contract with the Heat as a result of Sunday's sign-and-trade, per Shams Charania.

    Butler unexpectedly identified the Heat as his top destination earlier in the day, and things moved quickly to get him to South Beach. He's going to be a perfect fit with Miami's culture. The Heat will be sending Josh Richardson to Philly, but there are going to be other players headed out as well. We'll write it up as the news breaks.

  • Taj Gibson
    PF, New York Knicks

    Taj Gibson and the Knicks have agreed in principle to a two-year deal worth $20 million, as per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The Knicks failed to land any big free agents and are now scampering to sign anyone. Gibson, who is entering his 10th year in the league should be in for a back-up role for Julius Randle. Gibson's shooting efficiency should keep him borderline-relevant as long as he can carve out 22-25 minutes per game.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, George Hill will be returning to the Bucks this season after both parties agree on a three-year, $29 million deal.

    This is a solid payday for the 10-year vet. It makes sense that the Bucks locked him down, now that Malcolm Brogdon is headed to the Pacers. Hill should remain a fantasy late-round plodder who battles bouts of inconsistency from week to week.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle and the Knicks have reached an agreement on a three-year, $63 million deal.

    The Knicks looked to be in pole position for Randle over the last few days and ended up landing him. It's not a ton of term, but it is a lot of money, not that the Knicks had anyone else to spend it on. Randle's got a fun game and should put up some gaudy lines with the Knicks, and he's a great fit next to Kristaps Porzin– never mind. If Randle can keep his field goal percentage north of .500 he'll be a solid middle-round player with upside for more on the talent-starved Knicks. New York holds a team option on the final year of the deal, per Chris Haynes.

  • Nerlens Noel
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel has reached an agreement to return to the Thunder according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    Noel became an important cog in the Thunder's bench this past season and should be seen as a win for the team to retain his services. He is able to produce decent fantasy value with low playing time due to his high FG percentage and defensive stats. He figures to see a similar role next season, and an instant fantasy-add if Steven Adams goes down for any reason.

  • DeMarre Carroll
    SF, San Antonio Spurs

    According to Shams Charania, the Spurs are signing DeMarre Carroll to a two-year deal worth $13 million.

    Carroll should carve out a nice role as a floor-spacing 3-point shooter off the bench for the Spurs next season. He could flirt with standard-league value, but at this point, it's too early to tell since the free agent frenzy dust hasn't settled yet.

  • Mike Scott
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Mike Scott has agreed to return to Philadelphia on a two-year, $9.8 million deal according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Scott proved to be a valuable bench piece for a Sixers team who needed second unit scoring wherever they could find it. He is now set to return on a modest deal that should allow Philadelphia to continue piecing together the rest of their roster. Scott figures to have more real life value for his team than he will fantasy value.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Shams Charania reports that Tobias Harris plans to stay with the Sixers and intends to sign a five-year, $180 million deal.

    Harris has been a priority for the Sixers coming into the opening of free agency and it looks like they've agreed on a major deal for the roto-friendly forward. His value took a hit when he joined the Sixers last season, but with Jimmy Butler's future still currently up in the air, Harris might have some bounce-back appeal.

  • Dewayne Dedmon
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Dewayne Dedmon has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal with the Sacramento Kings according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    It felt like the Kings were in on basically every big-name center on the free agent market. While Dedmon doesn’t come with name recognition, he should serve to be an excellent fit with an up-and-coming Sacramento team. Dedmon figures to start in and play minutes in the high 20’s, while not taking away too many opportunities from Marvin Bagley. He should be considered to maintain the same level of fantasy value that he held last season.

  • Nicolo Melli
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans have agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal with Nicolo Melli.

    Melli and the Pellies, as it was meant to be. The 28-year-old Italian played for Turkey's Fenerbahce last season, shooting 38.5 percent from deep and leading the team in scoring during the EuroLeague Finals. It's a nice, low-cost gamble for the Pelicans, who will be looking for a stretch four with Darius Miller potentially headed elsewhere.
