  • 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.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    The 76ers have initiated discussions with Ben Simmons and agent Rich Paul about a contract extension.

    The Sixers went all-in last season with trades for Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, and may end up losing both in the coming days. The team doesn't want the same to happen with their young superstar PG and will look to lock Simmons down early.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris will meet with the 76ers as soon as free agency begins and is seeking a max deal according to David Aldridge of The Athletic.

    The 76ers will get the first crack at Harris while Jimmy Butler will be in Miami. There appears to be an impetus for the Sixers to walk away with at least one of their two free agents that they acquired last season, and it may come at the price of max money for Harris. We will update this situation as it develops.

  • Danny Green
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors, Lakers, Rockets, Sixers, Knicks, Mavs and Bulls are expected to reach out to Danny Green in free agency, per Harrison D. Sanford.

    Sanford co-hosts the Inside the Green Room podcast with Danny Green himself, so he's got a pretty good connection here. The Raptors' interest will likely be determined by Kawhi Leonard's decision, and although Green figures to wind up on a contending team it's worth noting that teams like the Knicks could offer him a more featured role. Green's 3-and-D skill set should earn him a nice deal this summer.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Lakers are making an aggressive bid to meet with Jimmy Butler, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

    Butler is meeting with the Heat when free agency opens tonight, where it is assumed that he'll inform the team of his desire to play in Miami. The Lakers certainly have a more appealing core to join, however, and given the gymnastics Miami will have to perform to open up cap space the door is certainly open for Butler to listen to other suitors.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Jimmy Butler is meeting with the Heat on Sunday, when he is expected to inform them that he wishes to play for the team.

    The Heat do not currently have the money to make it work, but they can get there. It won't be easy but they will do whatever is necessary assuming that Butler has eyes on Miami and Miami alone. The Heat were in the Butler sweepstakes last season but ultimately did not want to give up Josh Richardson in a trade with the Wolves. There are several teams expected to go hard at Butler, so we will see what ends up happening.

  • Al-Farouq Aminu
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype is reporting that the Nets, Sixers, Magic, Spurs, Clippers, Rockets and Pacers are among the teams interested in Al-Farouq Aminu.

    Some of the teams on that list already have their power forward situation accounted for, and we would imagine that Aminu will try and end up somewhere with an easy path to playing time. He's a nice fit for most rosters around the league as a low-maintenance offensive player that can crash the glass and defend multiple positions.

  • Quinn Cook
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype is reporting that Quinn Cook is attracting early interest from the Wizards, Sixers, Suns, Heat, Hornets, Nets and Mavs.

    The Warriors have the right to match any offer that comes Cook's way. That's a very lengthy list of teams, some with huge holes at point guard and others in the market for depth signings. Cook doesn't figure to be a fantasy factor but we'll wait for the dust to settle to declare anything officially.

  • Kyle O'Quinn
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Per Alex Kennedy, Kyle O'Quinn is receiving interest from the Hawks, Magic, 76ers, Bulls, Kings and Knicks.

    O'Quinn was assumed to not be in the Pacers' plans after they selected Goga Bitadze in the first round, and he is proving to be one of the more sought after cheap centers on the market. He can be a very appealing fantasy player when given the appropriate amount of minutes, which he could find in a few of the situations presented here.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Nets, should they fail to sign Kevin Durant, have been keeping an eye on both Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler, per SNY's Ian Begley.

    Brooklyn is expected to come to a quick agreement with Kyrie Irving and is hoping to pair him with a second max-level player. Butler is believed to be going to the highest bidder, but the sign-and-trade market has opened up additional possibilities. Whether either he or Harris is intrigued enough by Brooklyn's situation could be the determining factor, as both players will have no shortage of suitors, all likely checking in with similar offers.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    According to Gery Woelfel, the Sixers are expected to make the biggest play in free agency for the services of Malcolm Brogdon.

    Brogdon has a lot of appeal in the FA market right now, given that we expect some major shuffling of guards. He's a former Rookie of the Year awardee and has a fantasy-friendly game. Brogdon is not a ball-dominant guard and should be able to provide solid value (due to his efficiency) wherever he lands.

  • James Ennis III
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    As per Ian Begley, the Knicks are keeping an eye on James Ennis of the Sixers.

    Ennis, who declined his $1.8 million player option earlier this month, is a potential budget pick for a lot of teams. The Knicks are hoping to sign big-named free agents this summer but will also need to fill out their roster with a balance of role-players. They have their eye on Terry Rozier but have competition from the Hornets as far as landing him is concerned.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    According to Shams Charania, Jimmy Butler is expected to meet with the Sixers soon, but also has strong interest from teams with max salary cap space.

    Butler is a top option among the second-tier stars on the FA market. He's been linked to the Lakers and Nets but several teams have also expressed interest in signing him via sign-and-trade packages. As one of the league's best two-way players, it's no surprise that Butler is in high demand.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Mavs plan to submit an offer for Tobias Harris, though it is expected to be for less than the max according to Brad Townsend of the Dallas News.

    Townsend adds that the Mavs expect Philly to "back up the truck" for Harris, so it seems as though they know they won't be the highest bidder. Dallas lost two of their free agent targets in Kemba Walker and Nikola Mirotic, but most of their big board contains second and third-tier free agents that will complement their young core rather than high-priced foundational pieces. Harris would be a nice blend of those two approaches if Dallas could swing it.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Jimmy Butler will meet with the Heat on Sunday, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The Heat have been increasingly mentioned as potential Butler suitors in the last few days, and it's notable that they're getting the first meeting. Houston and Philly are both in on the action as well, and the Clippers have reportedly been trying to land Butler and Kawhi Leonard. The Sixers are said to be amenable to sign-and-trade agreements so Butler can get his coveted fifth year while Philly doesn't lose him for nothing, and both Houston and Miami would need to go that route in order to add Butler.
