Enes Kanter — the Oklahoma City Thunder’s top free agent — has plan to meet with the franchise in Chicago on July 1, the two sides targeting an early contract completion. The Thunder and Kanter are expected to discuss three- and four-year contract sheets that could reach maximum-level money with incentives, sources told RealGM. For the organization and Kanter, a restricted free agent, there will be an early window in free agency to reach an agreement before one of the top five available big men pursues larger offers elsewhere.: 2 more rumors
Nevertheless, several NBA teams will pursue Kanter, including potentially the Dallas Mavericks, sources said. Surprisingly, the Milwaukee Bucks have yet to express an interest in Kanter, nor have they broached a meeting with him in free agency — despite their needs and his averages against their franchise over the past three seasons: 19.2 points and 10 rebounds per game.: 2 more rumors
Alex Kennedy: I’ve heard the Bucks and Celtics have some level of interest in Enes Kanter. With cap rising in 2016, Kanter wants a max or near-max deal. For Bucks and Celtics, other free agents are a priority over Enes Kanter. But there is some interest, especially if they miss on others. Reminder: Enes Kanter is a restricted free agent so the Oklahoma City Thunder can match any offer sheet he receives.
Alex Kennedy: Dallas, New York, Chicago, Cleveland and, of course, Houston are among the teams interested in Patrick Beverley (@Patrick Beverley), per sources. Patrick Beverley is a restricted free agent, so the Rockets can match any offer sheet he receives. But those are the teams showing interest.: 1 more rumor
