The Rockets’ presentation to Kent Bazemore was “strong” according to David Aldridge of NBA.com, and the Nets join the Bucks, Wolves, Lakers, Nets, Knicks, presumably the Hawks and others in their pursuit of the small forward.
Bazemore has never been wined and dined at the NBA level and he hasn’t made a bunch of money, either. It’s unclear if he’s waiting on other bigger deals to happen but we’d be tempted to sign on the dotted line if it meant that type of income jump, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he made a decision sooner rather than later. He is our No. 2 ranked small forward on the board in free agency.
