Jordan Schultz: Some context to Landry Shamet being traded to the #Suns: Monty Williams was a huge advocate for Shamet after coaching him in Philly. #Nets also wanted to get off Landry before he was eligible for his extension this fall, according to league sources.
Bobby Marks: Cap implications on the Brooklyn/Phoenix trade To Phoenix Landry Shamet 2021/22- $3,768,342 * Rookie extension eligible starting on 8/6 To Brooklyn Jevon Carter 2021/22- $3,650,000 2022/23- $3,925,000 Pick #29 has a $2M value but does not count toward salary in a trade
Adrian Wojnarowski: Brooklyn has traded guard Landry Shamet to Phoenix for Jevon Carter and the 29th pick in tonight’s draft, sources tell ESPN.
The Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers are among the teams interested in trading for Brooklyn’s Landry Shamet ahead of Thursday’s draft, per SNY sources. Several teams have communicated with the Nets about possible trades for Shamet. Most of those scenarios involve the Nets receiving the team’s first-round pick.
If Brooklyn moves Shamet, you’d think that the club would be looking for shooting. Shamet, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is extension eligible this offseason, shot 41 percent from the floor last season. It’s worth noting that the Knicks had interest in acquiring Shamet in the trade that sent Marcus Morris Sr. to the Clippers. New York could send Brooklyn pick No. 19 or No. 21 and absorb Shamet’s deal into cap space (depending on the timing of the trade). The Pelicans, owners of the No. 17 pick, also have been interested in Shamet, per sources.
Houston (Nos. 23, 24) and New York (Nos. 19, 21) have continued their efforts searching to jump into the teens, while Brooklyn also appears active in talks to move up from No. 27, with the Nets offering sharpshooting guard Landry Shamet, sources said. Would a team like Indiana be willing to drop so far back? The Pacers are also discussing Aaron Holiday with rival teams, sources said.
But don’t be surprised if there are more trades on the horizon for the Nets. According to Brian Windhorst, one such player who could be on the move is 23-year-old combo guard Landry Shamet (via ESPN): “I don’t know what sort of trade value that they have left on their roster. I talked to two different teams that the Nets offered Landry Shamet to in the last week, attempting to get a first-round pick. They were trying to keep Jarrett Allen, as you can imagine. So to get the fourth first-round pick, they were trying to find a team that would give them anything and so they shopped Landry Shamet pretty hard, from what I understand.”
Brooklyn acquired Shamet from the Clippers as part of a three-teamtrade that occurred on the night of the 2020 NBA draft. The sharpshooter projected as an ideal fit for the Nets considering how many open looks he would get on the floor alongside Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Shamet is a shooting specialist who does not provide a ton of extra value as a playmaker or on defense. But he is currently averaging a career-worst 5.4 points per game. Similarly, his three-pointers per game (1.1) and three-point percentage (30.6 percent) are both the lowest marks of his career. Meanwhile, he is down from 27.4 minutes per game last season to just 17.6 minutes per game so far in 2020-21.
Bobby Marks: Brooklyn is acquiring Landry Shamet with the trade exception created in the Dzanan Musa trade. Great trade for a Brooklyn team that has championship aspirations.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Clippers are trading Landry Shamet to the Nets for No. 19, source tells ESPN.
Jovan Buha: Landry Shamet is off the table in trade discussions for Marcus Morris, league sources tell @TheAthleticLA.
Ian Begley: Knicks have made some progress with Clippers on Marcus Morris deal since this morning, per SNY sources. There’s still no indication that LAC would include Landry Shamet in the real.
To that end, a source confirmed that both [Los Angeles] teams are in pursuit of New York’s Marcus Morris. The Knicks small forward who is averaging 19.6 points and 5.4 rebounds is on an expiring contract and is widely expected to be traded. The Knicks, the source said, want the Clippers’ Landry Shamet if they’re going to go in that direction with a deal.
Ian Begley: On Knicks/Clippers and Marcus Morris, NYK certainly has interest in Landry Shamet as part of package in return for Morris but Clippers are unwilling to part with him, per sources. NY Post first reported Knicks targeting Shamet in a Morris deal.
Michael Gallagher: Woj says Landry Shamet is off limits in a trade.
Brad Turner: Lakers/Clippers in trade conversations about Knicks’ Marcus Morris, sources. NY interested in Kyle Kuzma; would need Danny Green’s contract to make work. NY would want to move Green to another team. Clippers willing to part with Mo Harkless, but like Landry Shamet, who NY wants.

UNICS Kazan is adding one more marquee name to its roster with O.J.Mayo having a one-year deal with the Russian club. While there’s no signed contract yet, that seems to be more a formality delayed by bureaucratic reasons.

Ramona Shelburne: For those who like fun real estate details. The Sterlings still own the Clippers current practice facility in Playa Vista. Ballmer said he has an option to buy it in 2024, but he’s not sure yet what he’ll do because their new complex in Inglewood is scheduled to open same year.

What’s the message the veterans are giving you about the last two years? Rick Carlisle: They were disappointed with how things have gone. We’ve got to work at developing a style of play so we can maximize what we have here. Exactly what that means as far as number of wins or the playoffs, I don’t know. I’m reluctant to get into that kind of stuff, because sometimes you can set goals that are too low.
