But from what I can gather, Wiggins doesn’t have a huge amount of value on the market right now. He’s about to start a five-year, $148 million contract and is coming off of a less-than-convincing fourth season in the league. If there isn’t a great market, they might be better off just holding on to him and trying to keep developing him. I still think that the best possible outcome for the Wolves is to get Wiggins to blossom into the kind of All-Star caliber player the organization envisioned when he was signed to the max extension.
Marc Stein: The Mavericks are signing Yogi Ferrell to a two-year deal worth in excess of $5 million, according to league sources
Jared Weiss: Marcus Smart’s deal is fully guaranteed for all four years with no options and will follow the standard 8% raise structure starting at around $11.6 million, a league source tells The Athletic.
Michael Grange: Raptors connected with Leonard and agent etc. multiple times and separately on Wednesday, according to league sources. All conversations positive, forward-looking.
Mark Murphy: Kenny Boren, Smart’s high school coach, on relief from new deal: “You have no idea. It’s been a tough summer with free agency and his mom’s (cancer), It’s been tough emotionally for him.”
James Edwards III: #Pistons have announced that they’ve added Tim Grgurich and Micah Nori (previously with Denver) to Dwane Casey’s staff. Grgurich and Casey go back to their Seattle days, which I talked about in this profile: theathletic.com/424727/2018/07…
