Community Shootaround: Available Restricted Free Agents

4 monthes ago   |   By Hoops Rumors

NBA restricted free agency can be a double-edged sword - this summer, for instance, it has been beneficial for players like Aaron Gordon , Zach LaVine , and Dante Exum , who have each signed player-friendly deals that don't look much different than contracts they might have earned as unrestricted free agents.

4 monthes ago   |   By Hoops Rumors

Although the Knicks are currently carrying 16 players on NBA contracts, the team hasn't closed the door on the possibility of signing another free agent before training camp gets underway. As Ian Begley of ESPN.com details, members of the Knicks organization have been in contact regarding free agent big man Willie Reed this month.
