Kent Bazemore was going to hold off on meetings until July 5, but just entered a meeting with the Rockets.
That’s fairly abrupt but the interest was coming one way or another. We have Baze ranked very high in our free agent rankings (No. 2 at shooting guard) and projected him at 17 million per year over four years. Who knows — maybe we get blown out of the water by a much bigger deal and the Rockets are probably desperate enough for something like that.
Teams that have inquired with Kent Bazemore's agent since midnight under impression it might take $19M-$20M per year to sign him.
