Adrian Wojnarowski: James Harden has repeatedly told management, ownership, you know, those in the organization that he is committed to being a Net that he wants to win a championship there and, and more than that, the Big Three in Brooklyn, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving… What they say publicly, they also say privately, which is, when they’re together, they believe they’re unstoppable and that the Nets are going to get that group back.
Harden can opt out of the 2022-23 season to become a free agent and sign elsewhere or the Nets could agree to a sign-and-trade deal in which Harden opts into the final year of his contract with plans to sign a long-term deal with his new team in 2023. ESPN’s front-office insider Bobby Marks projects only the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic and San Antonio Spurs to have cap space this offseason.

Aron Baynes not playing this season

NBA teams would love to have a rim defender and rebounder of Baynesโ€™ quality next season; letโ€™s hope he can regain the match fitness and strength to make this a reality.
