2022 NBA Free Agent Rumors: Dwell updates as Zach Lavine, Bulls agree on max deal; The savvy Celtics make the strikes

Both the 2021-22 season and the NBA Draft are in the books, and now all eyes are on the start of free agency. The speculations and rumors surrounding the free management company is what makes this time of year really exciting. This summer may not feature some of the biggest names in the free agency market, but it will still be an eventful season. A few hours before the free agency officially begins, Kevin Durant requested a trade off the Brooklyn Nets. One of the NBA’s biggest superstars is now making a team change this summer, and KD’s commercial requirements will certainly impact how the teams handle their season business.

NBA free agency kicks off Thursday at 6 p.m. ET, when teams can begin negotiating deals with players. However, the contracts won’t really become official until the moratorium is lifted on July 6. The NBA has informed teams that the salary cap for next season is expected to be 123 $0.6 million, up $11.6 million from last year’s $112 million. Zach LaVine (Bulls) and Bradley Beal (Wizards) have both agreed on maximum deals to return to their respective teams. The Knicks made a move by acquiring Jalen Brunson. In addition, Eastern Conference champions the Celtics have improved after pulling out of the Pacers defender Malcolm Brogdon’s landing deal, and are also set to sign Danilo Gallinari.
