With the NBA Draft only days way, the news and rumors will be running rampant.

The only stipulation regarding this clause is that the player being re-signed must have played for the re-signing team for at least three consecutive seasons without being waived or changing teams via free agency.

Free agency does not begin until July 1st, when teams can start contacting players to gauge interest, however, they can start renegotiating with the players now on their roster. Core members of the Warriors' roster are set to be free agents, including Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. Haynes now reports that Durant is expected to sign a two-year deal worth about $4 million less than the maximum, including another one-year player option. If Steph Curry and members of the Golden State Warriors have strong disagreements with President Trump, they should go engage him in debate and discussion, and make their disagreements known to him, and give him an opportunity to react.

Charania lists the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls, LA Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz as teams that have interest in Iguodala.

His new deal reportedly will pay him less than the max he's eligible for as a 10-year veteran in order to help Golden State's chances of retaining Andre Iguodala. Among teams around the league, there's a belief that the value this summer for a two-way wing such as Iguodala could reach $20 million annually.

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the free agent will "seriously consider" other teams this offseason. Curry is all but assured to receive that contract this summer, clearing the way for Durant to sign the same deal next summer, if he chooses to.
