Zach LaVine Will Hear The Recommendations, But He Must Remain The Bull
Star Zach LaVine is set to remain in the Chicago Bulls, but will hear proposals in the market before deciding. According to journalist Marc Stein, from the site small reservoir, the athlete wants to “enjoy” the experience of a free agent period. However, his chances of leaving the Illinois team appear to be declining.
LaVine seems to prefer to stay in Chicago, but something has changed in recent weeks. Earlier, the Bulls were reluctant to offer him a higher contract. Now, some teams have been warned by his agent (Klutch Sports) that he may not even be available to speak.
Either way, LaVine staying with the Bulls means pairing with DeMar DeRozan, one of the best players last season, will continue in the next campaign.
Carmelo Anthony can sign with the Nets
According to journalist Sean Deveney, from the site heavy, veteran Carmelo Anthony could strengthen the Brooklyn Nets if he does not return to the Los Angeles Lakers next season. However, there is still interest from the New York Knicks, but Anthony’s return to the Knicks, where he shone brighter in his career, is a decision made by coach Tom Thibodeau.
Deveney explains that Thibodeau did not like the arrival of Kemba Walker last year, but “swallowed” the board’s request. As a result, Walker did not do well with the Knicks, mainly due to a lack of defensive activity. For Anthony, the situation is the same.
On the other hand, at the Nets, Anthony would arrive with coach Steve Nash approving the signing.
It is worth mentioning that Carmelo was already close to strengthening the Nets, following a request from Kevin Durant. However, at the time, the board refused. Now, with the situation surrounding Kyrie Irving’s re-enactment and Durant outraged by the trend, it is possible Anthony could be used as a “pleasure.”
Appreciated after the final, Kevon Looney would be on the hornets of the Hornets and Kings
Center Kevon Looney found the market after his second title with the Golden State Warriors. According to journalist Marc Stein, from the site small reservoirCharlotte Hornets and Sacramento Kings would be impressed with the player’s services.
Looney is an unlimited free agent and the Warriors are waiting for James Wiseman, so it is likely that Looney will leave the San Francisco team for a whopping $ 5 million in 2021-22.
The Kings seem to be strong in the fact that Mike Brown, then an Warriors assistant, will take the Kings as head coach. The Hornets, on the other hand, would have had something like that, but Kenny Atkinson quit coaching the team and will take over from Steve Kerr.
In a series of decisions against the Boston Celtics, Looney had 5.0 points, 7.5 rebounds (but 3.5 of those were annoying) and 63.6% shooting in approximately 21 minutes of play.

According to Michael Scotto of the site Hoops Hype, Antetokounmpo had a choice in his contract and will receive around $ 1.9 million. Thus, he will not be an independent agent.

In 63 games, the athlete scored an average of 8.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and a 37% kick from three, for more than 22 minutes.
