Although the Hawks managed to sign Dwight Howard in free agency last summer to fill a frontcourt void, they were stung by the free-agent departure of Al Horford in that Horford, in the words of one source with knowledge of the team’s thinking, got away “for nothing.” The feeling within the organization now, sources said, is that it’s best to gauge the trade market for Millsap, Korver and Sefolosha between now and the Feb. 23 trade deadline to guard against a repeat scenario.

JD Shaw: The Denver Nuggets have reached an agreement with free agent forward Greg Whittington, agent Jerry Dianis tells @HoopsRumors.
Bobby Marks: Bam Adebayo rookie max extension Contract vs. the max he could earn 21/22 $28.1 ➡️$33.7 22/23 $30.4 ➡️$36.4 23/24 $32.6 ➡️$39.1 24/25 $34.8 ➡️$41.8 25/26 $37.1 ➡️$44.5 Total $163 ➡️$195.6
Bobby Marks: The Bam Adebayo $28.1M salary in 2021/22 (and possibly more) replaces his $15.4M cap hold. The Heat are still going to have between $25-28M in room.
Bobby Marks: Do not get caught up with Miami losing $13M in cap space in 2021/22. The front office in Miami is the gold standard of creating room or using other resources (see Jimmy Butler). No extension would have presented an uncomfortable position for a everyone involved.
Jon Johnson: Daryl Morey on Ben Simmons’ shooting:” We know he’s super effective the way he plays now. The rest is just upside”. Says his role will be up to Doc Rivers. Morey a guest of @MarksReeseWIP.
