Free Agency Rumors
“Boston never contacted me, but I made it known I was interested in them,” said Dudley, who shot 42 percent on 3-pointers for Washington last season. He believed he fit a need, but understood the club wants to give minutes to rookie Jaylen Brown.
“It’s one of the most important years to come for me. But at the end of the day, I’ll continue to do what I do best, and that’s working my butt off.” McLemore can become a free agent after the season. He’ll be restricted if the Kings make a qualifying offer rather than letting him leave as an unrestricted free agent. With the rising salary cap, players on their rookie deals such as McLemore are bargains. A qualifying offer for McLemore for the 2017-18 season will cost the Kings just $5.4 million.
