As most of you know, this is a monumental week in the NBA offseason. There’s a ton of news flying around with the 2014 draft just hours away and the official start of free agency on Tuesday and you can keep up with all of it on HoopsRumors.com.
LeBron James made shockwaves earlier this week when he notified the Heat that he’ll be exercising his early termination option in order to test the free agent market. Knicks star Carmelo Anthony also decided to opt out of his deal and there are already teams daydreaming of clearing enough cap space to unite the two stars. Elsewhere, the Grizzlies could be in danger of losing free agent Zach Randolph and the Lakers are continuing their coaching search. And, of course, the trade winds continue to swirl around Timberwolves All-Star Kevin Love.
Tonight’s draft also promises to be one of the most thrilling in recent memory thanks to a great deal of uncertainty at the top of the board. The Cavs have the No. 1 pick and while they’ve been heavily connected to Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins, their move is anyone’s guess after their surprise selection one year ago.
If you’ve been out of the basketball loop, have no fear: you can take this afternoon to pour over our comprehensive archive of material to get yourself caught up. You can also study up on tonight’s draft with Hoops Rumors’ Prospect Profiles, which includes interviews I conducted with many of the spotlighted players.
