2017 NBA Free Agency Diary



  • Reports: Sergio Rodriguez to Return to EuroLeague

    Sergio Rodriguez reportedly will again play in the EuroLeague after a one-year return to the NBA last season.

    The point guard, who played last season for the Philadelphia 76ers, agreed to a three-year contract with CSKA Moscow, according to multiple reports. Freelance journalist David Pick first reported the news.

  • Sources: Jason Terry Drawing Interest?

    Jason Terry also made an appearance at the Summer League and, while it is generally assumed he’ll return to the Bucks for another season, it’s far from a slam dunk. According to league sources, the 39-year-old Terry, who gave the Bucks some quality leadership and 3-point shooting last season, has drawn interest from some other teams.

    An official with a Western Conference playoff-caliber team, who requested anonymity, confirmed his team is contemplating extending Terry a contract offer.

  • Timberwolves Targeting Former Bulls In Free Agency?

    The Minnesota Timberwolves want to add a point guard and wing player. Aaron Brooks, Anthony Morrow, and Alan Anderson are among those on Minnesota's radar, league sources told Basketball Insiders.

    Minnesota wants a steady veteran presence at point guard and a wing player who can stretch the defense.

    Tom Thibodeau came into the offseason wanting to reacquire several of his former Bulls veterans to help guide his young nucleus of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Thibodeau accomplished that by trading for Jimmy Butler and signing Taj Gibson in free agency.

    If signed, Brooks would represent the third former Bulls player to join the Timberwolves. The 32-year-old veteran enjoyed success under Thibodeau during the 2014-15 season when he averaged 11.6 points and 3.2 assists in 23 minutes per game as Chicago’s primary backup point guard. Brooks also shot 39 percent from beyond the arc that season.

    Morrow is a career 42 percent shooter from beyond the arc and is considered one of the league’s top shooters. The 31-year-old split time between the Thunder and Bulls last season.

    Anderson is a career 34 percent shooter from downtown. The 34-year-old also provides solid on-the-ball perimeter defense.

  • Pelicans Willing to Help Facilitate Anthony-to-HOU Trade

    The Pelicans, once the home of Ryan Anderson, expressed interest in being one of the clubs involved, according to a source. Anderson’s contract, which has three years and $60 million remaining, needs to be part of the transaction because [Carmelo] Anthony’s $27 million pact — plus trade kicker — is so immense. The Knicks have no interest in Anderson because he plays Kristaps Porzingis’ position and is older than the mid-20s-type player the club seeks.
