Agreements in Principle

  • Seth Curry
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Seth Curry has reached an agreement with the Mavs on a four-year, $32 million deal, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Curry was thought to be a target of the Lakers, but he'll head back to Dallas, where he had the finest season of his career in 2016-17. Curry was a borderline standard-league play that year and had stretches of legitimate fantasy value, and we'll see if he can replicate that success with a very different Mavs squad. Curry's efficient shooting makes him a nice fit, and he'll provide some secondary playmaking and quality floor-spacing for the young, dynamic Mavs. This definitely takes Dallas out of the Miami-Philadelphia sign-and-trade situation.

  • Ish Smith
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Ish Smith has agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with the Wizards according to Shams Charania.

    Smith has established himself as a high quality backup who can take the reins in a pinch, but at the moment he's shaping up as the Wizards' starting point guard. That immediately puts him on the standard-league map, even with the warts in his game. Keep an eye on the rest of Washington's moves this summer to see if they add more backcourt depth.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Michael Carter-Williams has agreed to a one-year deal that will keep him with the Magic, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    It's not surprising that Carter-Williams would stick with Orlando, as that is where he revived his career under Steve Clifford last season. MCW still has obvious flaws as a player but his size and length fit nicely with what the Magic are building defensively. Orlando looks ready to run it back with the same group as last season.

  • Wayne Ellington
    SG, New York Knicks

    Wayne Ellington will head to the Knicks on a two-year, $16 million pact.

    The Knicks were said to be very interested in Ellington and ended up getting their man. He has a chance to start but with David Fizdale calling the shots his minutes could be very erratic. We've seen Ellington hold standard-league value in the past but the young Knicks figure to tilt the scales away from him over time, so his appeal might only exist as a 3-point streamer. The Knicks have used their vast cap space to add veterans and young, overpaid upside guys. At least they'll have some potential trade assets at the next two deadlines.

  • Tomas Satoransky
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    The Wizards and Bulls have agreed to a sign-and-trade that will send Tomas Satoransky to Chicago on a three-year, $30 million deal.

    Satoransky finally got a chance to shine last season when John Wall was injured and he ended up delivering top-100 fantasy value over the final two months of the year while averaging 11.0 points, 6.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds after the All-Star break. Although Woj says that Satoransky will get a chance to start, it's not a great spot for him to land in terms of fantasy value because the Bulls already have Coby White and Kris Dunn rather than a wide open depth chart, and even if (when) Dunn moves on the future clearly lies with White. The Wizards got protections erased on a 2023 second-rounder that they obtained from Chicago for Otto Porter as well as the better of Memphis' or Chicago's second-rounders in 2020 and the right to swap a 2022 second-rounder.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports reported that the Kings and Cory Joseph have agreed to a three-year, $37 million deal.

    Sam Amick of The Athletic reports that the third year has a partial guarantee, which is pretty much Vlade's go-to move. The Kings have two guards in De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield that will both play 32-33 mpg, and Bogdan Bogdanovic isn't a great option at small forward so this is kind of a mess. That said, Joseph brings hard nose defense and will be a lower-usage guy, so he fits on those levels. If the Kings found a way to reduce some of this clutter, it would be a better deal, but it's a nice get in their quest to make the playoffs.

  • Reggie Bullock
    SG-SF, New York Knicks

    The Knicks and Reggie Bullock have agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal.

    The Knicks were widely thought to be one of Bullock's biggest suitors, though it is a mild surprise that he didn't attract more interest from contending teams that could use an affordable 3-and-D player. Bullock's shooting went in the tank after he was traded to the Lakers last season, but there is definite late-round appeal as a player who can hit over two threes a a game with adequate efficiency while chipping in the occasional steal.

  • Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley has reached an agreement on a three-year, $40 million deal to remain with the Clippers.

    Beverley is a wonderful cultural fit for a Clippers team that typically ends up as more than the sum of its parts. He drew serious interest around the league but will ultimately re-up with the Clippers. It's not the best spot for his fantasy value with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Lou Williams and Landry Shamet all occupying heavy backcourt roles, but Beverley's stat set should support standard-league value. And yes, the Clippers still have space available for a max contract.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray has agreed to a max extension of five years and $170 million with the Nuggets.

    Murray reportedly started extension talks earlier this evening, and it looks like there wasn't much to discuss. He is a centerpiece for a Nuggets team that has serious title hopes as the league levels out, and the Nuggets will hope that Murray continues to exhibit growth as he enters his fourth year in the league.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, New York Knicks

    Bobby Portis has agreed to a two-year, $31 million deal with the Knicks.

    New York drafted Kevin Knox last season but decided to spend a combined $94 million on five years of Julius Randle and Bobby Portis tonight. The newcomers may handle some backup center minutes but Randle and Portis figure to cut into each other's minutes, and therefore fantasy value, at the four spot. Portis was said to be looking for $16 million annually and this will certainly fit the bill. We'll see what his minutes look like once the games begin, but it's not a great spot for fantasy value given the other bodies in New York's frontcourt. The Wizards will rescind their qualifying offer, allowing Portis to head to the Knicks as an unrestricted free agent.

  • Robin Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    According to Chris Haynes, Robin Lopez has reached an agreement on a deal with the Bucks.

    Ro-Lo joins his brother Bro-Lo (Brook Lopez) in what should be an interesting frontcourt pairing/rotation. The deal is reportedly for two years at the full room exception with the second year being a player option.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors and Nets have agreed to a sign-and-trade of D'Angelo Russell, who has agreed to a four-year, $117 million contract.

    This is an absolute stunner. The Warriors — if they keep Russell rather than flip him somewhere — add a serious up-and-comer to a backcourt that features two elite talents. Russell will help the Warriors stay competitive while Klay Thompson heals up, but the long-term fit is questionable after that. We'll see if there's another move coming. As the deal has been reported, the Dubs would also need to send back either Draymond Green or Andre Iguodala. The Warriors could just be trying to grab talent and sort it out later, but Russell just isn't a fit with the way they play. This is a wild one.

  • Derrick Jones Jr.
    SF, Miami Heat

    Jared Weiss has reported that the Heat do not want to give up Derrick Jones to the Mavs as part of the sign-and-trade deal that facilitates their landing Jimmy Butler.

    The Mavs only agreed to join in the trade to help make the math work under the assumption that they would be getting both Jones and Kelly Olynyk out of this deal. If the Mavs pull out, the Heat will need to find another trade partner and possibly ship off Goran Dragic to make the numbers work out.

  • Mario Hezonja
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that the Blazers are signing Mario Hezonja to a one-year minimum deal.

    As a four-year veteran, Hezonja should be making roughly $1.7 million. The Blazers get a solid role-player and will only be dinged for about $1.6 million on the cap with this move. Sneaky-good one as Hezonja has shown some flashes of upside in the past.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Tony Jones has reported that the Pelicans have traded for Derrick Favors from the Jazz.

    The Pelicans are sending assets in the form of picks to the Jazz in exchange for the PF/C. Favors should be in an interesting situation as a possible mentor to Zion Williamson in New Orleans.
