While it’s clearly too soon to write him off on the court, there are some hesitations about his potential as a brand endorser, according to several industry sources. Wiggins will likely be looking at offers ranging around half of what he signed for with Adidas as a rookie, with outside companies feeling “he’s signable,” according to a rival executive. Adidas may look to move on from the once-coveted teen phenom, according to industry sources, in favor of a push for a proven All-NBA talent like Kawhi Leonard, or to provide its younger emerging stars like Donovan Mitchell and Brandon Ingram more room to grow as they eclipse Wiggins’ marketability.

Tim Bontemps: If today was July 1, I think Durant would leave. I think it’s most likely he signs with the Knicks, and if not the Knicks I could see he and Kawhi Leonard teaming up with the Clippers. I would be surprised if he was with anyone but the Knicks, Clippers or Warriors next season, though. And I also won’t be surprised if he changes his mind plenty of times between now and when he makes that decision.
There are whispers around the league that neither Jimmy Butler nor Kawhi Leonard wants to play with LeBron, and sources I’ve talked to would be shocked if Klay Thompson left Golden State. That might leave the Lakers with Walker or Middleton as their top remaining free-agent targets. If I’m the Hornets, that possibility would have me worried.
As for Green? That is less certain. He believes it is hard to quantify his value both in a box score and on a spreadsheet. Generally, though, Green wants to stay with the Warriors. Incidentally, he exited a loading dock just as Lacob was talking to this publication. Lacob then said, “I love Draymond!” Green smiled and said, “I love Joe!” They then exchanged pleasantries.
