Dennis Smith Jr. adds a solid POA defender, but not sure about adding a non-shooter in the backcourt alongside Ben Simmons and Nic Claxton.
Perhaps Nets think he can improve there. – 9:49 AM

Our roundup of free agency analysis is up and running with an assessment of what the Draymond Green, Kyrie Irving and Bruce Brown Jr. deals mean: espn.com/nba/insider/st… (ESPN+) – 7:50 PM
Jack Winter @ArmstrongWinter
Draymond’s new deal is perfect example of compromise from both sides.
Older player takes a bit less annually to help lower tax bill, team gives him full control of fate entering age-37 season.
So much for Myers’ exit coloring negotiations. Both Dray and Dubs should be thrilled. – 7:10 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Here’s some quick analysis on the Draymond Green deal. Also includes an update on the Warriors chase of Dario Saric. Team remains “hopeful” of getting Saric on minimum but isn’t done as of this hour. Warriors front office is in LA today. theathletic.com/4657032/2023/0…7:10 PM

All signs have pointed to a new Draymond Green deal in Golden State since my enclosed story Monday and league sources now project Green to land a contract in the four-year, $100 million range from the Warriors once free agency commences.
My Monday report: marcstein.substack.com/p/nba-free-age…5:45 PM
Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Outside of Draymond Green, Warriors interested in signing swingmen and front court players who shoot well at minimum deals, according to source. High on Warriors free agent wish list is big man Dario Saric, who averaged 6.4 points and 3.6 rebounds for Phoenix and OKC last season. – 4:16 PM
