Welcome to another edition of the NBA market bulletin from Jumper Brasil, with the best compiled of rumors about the league teams!
Caldwell-Pope to leave Lakers contract
Champion by Los angeles lakers last Sunday, winger-guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will leave the current contract with the team and will be an unrestricted free agent, according to journalist Shams Charania, of the The Athletic. The player, who had the option in his deal, worth $ 8.4 million, believes he was valued for the title.
Caldwell-Pope is one of the athletes who has been on the team for the longest time. He arrived in 2017-18, after four years at the Detroit Pistons. At the time, the player signed for one season and received $ 17 million. The following year, he repeated the formula and closed for US $ 12 million. Finally, last year, it hit two campaigns, the last of which was its option. Shirt number 1 averaged 9.3 points in 2019-20, but raised their numbers to 12.8 points in the finals against the Miami Heat.
Bucks could hit with Bogdan Bogdanovic
Restricted free agent, winger-guard Bogdan Bogdanovic would be targeted by Milwaukee Bucks for next season, according to journalist Shams Charania of the website The Athletic. Bogdanovic would arrive to be another player with the ability to organize the game and shoot from a long distance to help Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton on the Wisconsin team.
The big question is that the Sacramento Kings can match any proposal made to the 28-year-old Serbian. Last season, he received about $ 8.5 million. Kings have other pieces in their squad that could make up for his absence, but in an eventual negotiation with Buddy Hield, the situation could change.
In 61 matches, 28 of them as a starter, Bogdanovic averaged 15.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and converted 37.2% of the shots from three in the past campaign.
Timberwolves continues talking to other teams for the first choice
The Minnesota Timberwolves have the first choice of the 2020 draft, but still don’t know what to do with it. Gersson Rosas, president of operations for the team, recently confirmed that he talks with several teams about a possible negotiation.
In the Tom Haberstroh podcast, from NBC Sports, Rosas said that if it were to change the choice, it would be for a player willing to arrive at the Timberwolves ready to respond immediately and help Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell.
The draft takes place on November 18th.
Josh Jackson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist e Pat Connaughton estariam na lista do Cavs
The Cleveland Cavaliers board recently said it wants the team fighting for playoffs as early as 2020-21. Now, the team would be looking for some reinforcements, but none that would be able to raise the bar immediately. Among them are Josh Jackson (Memphis Grizzlies), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Dallas Mavericks) and Pat Connaughton (Milwaukee Bucks).
Cavs do not intend to negotiate the wingman Kevin Love and believe that the player can contribute, alongside Andre Drummond in the bottle. The problem is that betting on Kidd-Gilchrist would not improve the squad. Jackson had more bad than good moments in his short career, despite being the fourth choice of the 2017 draft. Connaughton, on the other hand, has no great offensive devices to contribute to Cleveland’s unproductive (26th in 2019-20) attack.
– Derrick Jones, an unrestricted free agent who has spent the past three seasons at the Miami Heat, may be in the sights of Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Hornets and Cleveland Cavaliers, according to journalist Shams Charania of The Athletic. Jones started 16 of the 59 heat games in 2019-20 and scored 8.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.0 stolen in about 23 minutes of action.
– Rajon Rondo, who left the contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, is another player who is in the sights of the New York Knicks. The shipowner would receive US $ 2.96 million in 2020-21, but chose to be an unrestricted free agent.
– The owner Jrue Holiday continues to be observed by several teams in the offseason, The player, aged 30, has a contract until 2021-22. There are indications that the Denver Nuggets would be one of the main stakeholders in his hiring and the team could involve Gary Harris in an eventual negotiation.
– Experienced winger Wilson Chandler will play in China’s Zhejiang Guangsha Lions. The agreement had been reached last month. but it was finished just now. It is not yet clear whether there is an exit option clause for the NBA without fines, however. Chandler served at the Brooklyn Nets in 2019-20 and averaged 5.9 points and 4.1 rebounds in 35 matches.
