Free Agency

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Per Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Lakers believe that they are in the lead to sign Kawhi Leonard after pitches from LeBron James and Magic Johnson, but Drake is mounting his recruitment team for the Raptors, and the Clippers have done everything Leonard’s camp has asked of them.

    Read into this as you will, but nothing has changed much in the past week. All meetings and negotiations continue to be tight-lipped between the franchises and Leonard’s camp. Each team likes what they can bring to the table to sway Leonard. The Raptors can offer the most money and are coming off a championship season. The Clippers are in L.A. and can make Leonard, “The man.” And the Lakers have the prestigious history in L.A. while giving Leonard the chance to play with James and Anthony Davis. Leonard’s decision will inevitably change the course of all three franchises and the NBA as we know it.

  • Danny Green
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Speaking on 105.3 The Fan, Danny Green’s podcast co-host Harrison Sanford said that Green is, “considering not waiting” for Kawhi Leonard’s decision before making his own.

    That’s quite the departure from his previous thinking. It’s been less than 48 hours since free agency “began,” but we’ve seen most teams use their cap space already. It’s possible a potential Green suitor will go elsewhere should he keep waiting. Things continue to get interesting as we await Leonard’s landing spot.

  • Vincent Poirier
    C, Boston Celtics

    Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Celtics and French C Vincent Poirier have agreed on a two-year deal.

    At 6’11” Poirier will look to help the frontcourt depth for the Celtics who lost Al Horford and Aron Baynes this offseason. Poirier will likely compete with Robert Williams and Daniel Theis for backup center minutes. As of right now, Poirier is off the fantasy radar, but if he shows well this summer he can potentially play himself into a decent role on the team.

  • DeMarcus Cousins
    C, Golden State Warriors

    Speaking on DeMarcus Cousins’ free agency on ESPN, Adrian Wojnarowski said that, “There is not a market for him.”

    Cousins is coming off back-to-back seasons with significant injuries. Last season Cousins had to settle for a small one-year deal with the Warriors to rehab his value, and he may have to do so again after tearing his quad in the playoffs. The Mavs were known to be heavily interested in Cousins pre-injury, and the Lakers are a team that will presumably take a look as well once Kawhi Leonard makes up his mind.
