Adrian Wojnarowski: Among reasons for not matching on Tyrus Jones: Minnesota is pursuing max cap space in 2020 free agency. Without space this summer, Wolves were a finalist for D’Angelo Russell. They’ll work to get back into market with real flexibility next year.

The only reason they were considered a player in the D'Angelo Russell sweepstakes was because he's really close with KAT. Next years free agent crop is absolutely terrible but they should keep some cap flexibility so they can dump Wiggins on someone.

Bleacher Report: If the Miami Heat have their way, an ideal scenario would be acquiring Russell Westbrook from the Oklahoma City Thunder without giving up two of their most promising young players. Per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Heat would "prefer not to include" Tyler Herro or Bam Adebayo in any trade with the Thunder involving Westbrook.

NY Post: The Nets’ Kevin Durant-Kyrie Irving era may be short-lived

The Nets have three years to keep Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Both players have player options for the fourth season of their respective contracts meaning they can become free agents again in 2022. In essence, that means Durant is only guaranteed to play two seasons in Brooklyn, as he’s not expected to play this season after suffering an Achilles tear in the NBA Finals.

They'd be better off saving for 2021. Better Free Agency group.

Who knows if LeBron is still going to be worth his absurd max in 2 more years TBH.

Not to mention you also have 

Anthony Davis 
CJ McCollum
Bradley Beal
Rudy Gobert

as well.

I heard lebron really wants to play with his son. That’s 4 years away. He’ll resign until that point and go to whatever team drafts his son.

If he wants to play with his son, he will have to play FIVE more seasons. His son is just entering HS so he still has four years of that and then he will be drafted.

So Bron Bron is going to have to play 21 seasons if he wants to play with his son......Assuming his son is good enough to go to the league straight out of the draft.

LeBron James Jr. would be eligible in 2022 provided the widely expected College requirement goes away for that draft class. That lines up with the end of LeBron's current 3+1 contract with the Lakers.

I'm guessing he'll be good enough to be in the NBA, but to what degree, who knows.

Minnesota isn't poaching anyone in FA.
