You’re a restricted free agent. With all the uncertainty in the world, do you have any nerves of not finding a home for next season or do you think you’ve done enough to play in the NBA next season? Chris Chiozza: I’m pretty certain that I’ll find somewhere. I’m not really trying to think about it too much. I take it day by day. Just focusing on what I can control. Free agency isn’t something I can control. I’m just going to let everything play out and hope for the best.

More on Chris Chiozza Free Agency

As to whether he’d want to come back next season —he’ll be a restricted free agent come October— Chiozza said he “definitely” wants to return. “I’ve gotten comfortable here, enjoy the teammates, the staff, all the coaches. So I would love to back for sure.”
NBA commissioner Adam Silver spoke of a possible return once there’s an “all clear” from public health officials, according to ESPN. If and when that happens, the Nets would likely want to use Chiozza in the playoffs, but to do so they’d have to convert him from a two-way player to a standard NBA deal. That would necessitate creating a roster spot for the 24-year-old, which would require waiving somebody. Pinson would be the most likely casualty, a tough one for the immensely popular second-year pro from North Carolina.
Chase Hughes: The Wizards have added PG Chris Chiozza as a camp invite, I'm told. He played for Wiz & Rockets last yr. But aside from him, no plans to bring in reinforcements, per source. They'll roll w/ Smith, Robinson, McRae & Brown. Beal will also see time on-ball. More soon @NBCSWizards
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets announce the signing of guard Chris Chiozza to get to the required 14 players. He played with the Vipers when on a 10-day contract with the Rockets and has been in the G League with Capital City this season.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Rockets are signing G League guard Chris Chiozza to a 10-day contract, league sources tell ESPN. A rookie out of Florida, he was preparing to play with Jeff Van Gundy and USA Basketball at the FIBA qualifiers in Greensboro.

If nothing happens, Randle stands to be a restricted free agent in 2022. “We’ll see when we get to that time,” Randle said. “But right now, I’m really just focused on what we have to do as a team. That’s so far ahead in the future. When that time presents itself I’ll be ready, we’ll talk or whatever, but I’m really just focused on this team, first off getting a win [Thursday] going into All-Star break, getting my body right so I’m healthy, staying on top of what I have to, starting off the second half of the season strong. That’s where my focus is right now.”

Wolves made an offer for Aaron Gordon

Darren Wolfson: The Wolves had trade interest in Gordon last year, February-January of 2020. They talked to Orlando. They’ve been trying to trade for Aaron Gordon for a while. They view him as a really good fit next to Karl-Anthony Towns. So the Wolves have engaged Orlando in numerous talks. In fact, I’ll advance it here by saying I’m told that the Wolves made Orlando a pretty nice offer before Gordon got hurt sometime earlier this calendar year. So they talked to Orlando around draft time. Then at some point after the season started. I’m told they made some sort of offer. I don’t have specifics on what that offer entailed. Clearly, it wasn’t enough to get a deal done.
So let’s discuss the elephant in the room. When did you decide to leave the Celtics and why? Hayward: Not until that day when I decided. There was so much that happened before that, in the bubble, me getting hurt. In the bubble I felt like our team was playing really well, I felt like I was doing well. Then I get hurt, I have to come out of the bubble to rehab, then go back in, not fully healthy, we lose in the playoffs and at the same time I have a baby boy and come back home. The league told us the season probably wasn’t going to start until the end of January, so I have a minor surgery to do and rehab. But then actually we’re going to start right before Christmas. Then you’re scrambling, trying to get ready and healthy, then free agency hits and ultimately you have to decide where to be. It really wasn’t was until the day I decided that I wanted to have a fresh start and try to help this team.
