Report: LaMarcus Aldridge to meet with Raptors in Free Agency

Apparently, he plans on meeting with the Toronto Raptors brass to discuss his plans in said free agency. Let's all take a deep breath. According to league sources on RealGM, Aldridge will also be talking with the San Antonio Spurs (the presumed favourites) and the Houston Rockets (because they get involved in everything).

Is there a market for Deron Williams? Nets seem to think there is

For months, as Deron Williams production waxed and waned, its inconsistency only highlighted by his 35-point performance in Game 4 of the playoffs, trade scenarios have been batted around.  Deron to Sacramento, Deron back to Utah, Deron across the river to New York, their credibility strained by the realization that he is getting worse. With $43.2 million left on his max contract, D-Will in the words of his coach is no longer a franchise player. "He's a good player, he's a solid player, but I don't think he's a franchise player anymore. That's just my opinion. He's a good player," said...

With Speights back, what’s next for the Warriors in free agency?

The Warriors on Monday exercised their $3.8 million option to keep reserve forward/center Marreese Speights for the 2015-16 season - one of the team’s final paperwork moves before the NBA’s free-agency period commences at 9 p.m. Tuesday. Extending qualifying offers would make the players restricted free agents - meaning the Warriors could match any opponent’s offer sheet - or the players could accept the one-year tenders. Since Green is expected to get a raise of more than 10 times his current salary, the Warriors will continue to listen to offers for backup power forward David...

2015 NBA Free Agency: Knicks prioritizing Aldridge and Jordan, "frontrunners" for Monroe and Afflalo

So, to start: It is June 29. No one's met with anyone or talked money yet. Everything is preliminary. But here's some early direction: Knicks are frontrunners for two free agents -- Greg Monroe and Arron Afflalo, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Those are realistic targets. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 29, 2015 Monroe's been rumored as Knicks target #1 -- and perhaps vice-versa -- for a long time, but recent reports have him strongly considering other teams. He'll meet with a bunch of teams, of course. I'm curious who's leaking something like this right now -- agents?...
