Unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore met with the Rockets on Thursday night but did not leave with an agreement.
That makes sense as there is plenty of interest in Bazemore around the league and this meeting sort of popped up out of nowhere as he wasn’t supposed to meet with teams until after July 4. We had him projected at around $17 million per year for four years and we saw signs it might go up to $19 million. He was our No. 2 ranked small forward in our Hoop Ball Free Agency rankings.
Update: The Lakers expressed interest in Kent Bazemore which is fun because they tossed him to the fishes many moons ago. It seems like a strange fit considering they just drafted Brandon Ingram but after the Lakers’ start to free agency we’re not going to be the ones to tell them something doesn’t make sense.
