Shams Charania: Free agent guard Bryn Forbes has agreed to a deal with the Spurs, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Forbes returns to San Antonio.
Bryn Forbes parted ways with Milwaukee after not playing in the last three games of the Finals, and league sources said the Brooklyn Nets are believed to be a leading candidate for him. Other teams to keep an eye on: Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas and New Orleans.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Bryn Forbes is declining his player option for the 2021-22 season and will become an unrestricted free agent, sources told ESPN on Tuesday. Forbes played a significant role off the bench as the Bucks delivered the franchise’s first NBA championship in 50 years. He had his most efficient NBA season in several offensive categories, including 3-point percentage and true shooting percentage. Forbes, 28, was fourth in the NBA in 3-point shooting (45.2%) — and third best among players with 200-plus attempts. Forbes averaged 12.2 points on 48% 3-point shooting in February when starting guard Jrue Holiday was sidelined.
Bobby Portis has a $3.8 million player option, and Bryn Forbes has a $2.4 million player option. Both of those guys exceeded those contracts exponentially, and they’re both expected to opt out. It looks to me, especially for a guy like Portis who played really well, it’s going to be tough for Milwaukee to keep him. It’s going to be interesting to see if Bobby, who is adored by fans in Milwaukee, is maybe willing to give the organization some type of a discount.
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed forward Torrey Craig, guard Bryn Forbes and forward Bobby Portis. “We’ve bolstered the depth of our roster with the additions of Torrey, Bryn and Bobby,” General Manager Jon Horst said. “Together they bring toughness, shooting and playoff experience to our team. We look forward to their continued development playing in Coach Bud’s system.”
Matt Velazquez: League source confirms the Bucks are signing Bryn Forbes to a two-year deal as first reported by @Adrian Wojnarowski. Also, the Bucks will bring in Jaylen Adams and Mamadi Diakite on two-way contracts and EJ Montgomery will come to Milwaukee on a training-camp deal.

Tom Osborn: At the end of answering an L.A. reporter’s question about Forbes’ development, Pop noted, “This is his last year under contract, so either we are going to have to pay him or lose him.” And you would prefer to pay him, the reporter said. Pop’s reply: “We would love to do that.”

Paul Garcia: The Spurs have re-signed Bryn Forbes
Shams Charania: Spurs restricted free agent Bryn Forbes is finalizing an agreement to return to San Antonio, league sources tell Yahoo.
Shams Charania: Forbes will re-sign with Spurs on a two-year deal, league sources said.
Have they told you they’re going to pick up that option? Bryn Forbes: “Not explicitly, but they don’t really tell you much explicitly, ‘This is what’s going to happen.’ From making the team, I didn’t know what to expect. (Popovich) told me after the last (preseason) game that I made the team. Every step of the way, you find out that last day, even if you thought you knew from the jump.”

Adrian Wojnarowski: Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns has agreed on a four-year, $224M super max extension, his agent Jessica Holtz of @CAA_Basketball tells ESPN. Deal begins with the 2024-25 season and delivers Towns’ total contract value to six years and $295M.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Booker and Towns’ representative, Jessica Holtz, is the first female player agent to secure a max contract — and did it with two super max deals on the same day.

As the first day of free agency nears a close, distance remains between the contract desires of Kevon Looney and Gary Payton II and the willingness from the Warriors to meet that number, sources told The Athletic. In particular, the odds that Payton departs the Warriors are rising rapidly, with the internal belief they are likely to lose him.
Facing a record tax bill multiplying each additional dollar spent by nearly seven, the Warriors entered free agency intent on avoiding any overpay that the market doesn’t demand. They want to bring both Looney and Payton back. Both players prefer a reunion with the defending champions, if the price is right. That’s where the current separation exists.
