Mike Fisher: Our sense is that while #Mavs seem willing to give the three years to Duffy client Beverley, some other bidders might only go two years for the 31-yo PG. pic.twitter.com/Vqjj2Ld2iS
Brad Townsend: representation about tomorrow’s start of free agency. Beverley is in L.A. I’m told no face-to-face meeting has been set up, but Mavs and Beverley at the least plan to talk.
Andrew Greif: Among other dealings today, the Clippers reached out to representatives for Patrick Beverley and Marcus Morris, sources said. Both hard-nosed players, which fits the ID Clippers want for the team. The team obviously knows Beverley well.
Sean Deveney: According to sources, two teams reached out to Patrick Beverley today to set up #NBAFreeAgency meetings: Mavericks and Bulls. Beverley is in LA during the process.
Brad Turner: Sources: The Lakers have reached out to the reps of free agent guard Patrick Beverley. Beverley is one of the best defenders in the NBA and his 3-point shooting has improved dramatically. He’s also a great locker room presence.
Jason Anderson: A league source tells me the Kings are, in fact, interested in acquiring free agent point guard Patrick Beverley.
On ESPN’s The Lowe Post podcast, ESPN NBA reporter Brian Windhorst suggested Phoenix is intrigued by Beverley. I think the Phoenix Suns are the team that is really interested in [Beverley].
Tim MacMahon: Sources: Patrick Beverley is seeking a deal in the three-year, $40+ million range. Suitors include Mavs, Lakers, Bulls and Clippers. Agent Bill Duffy also represents Luka Doncic and is known to be intrigued by idea of pairing bulldog Beverley with the young playmaker.
With the June 30 start of free agency nearing, Clippers guard Beverley, 30, is very much in play for the Mavericks. Sources told The Dallas Morning News on Monday night that Dallas and Beverley regard one another as a “perfect fit,” although that’s a long way from saying he’s on the verge of joining Doncic in the Mavericks’ backcourt. There’s the not-so-small matter of money, specifically how the Mavericks will choose to allocate their estimated $30 million of salary cap space. And Beverley has other suitors, including the Lakers and Sixers.
A source said that while the Mavericks and Beverley plan to meet at the start of free agency, the time and site of that meeting had not been set as of Monday night.
Feisty veteran guard Patrick Beverley is planning to grant the Dallas Mavericks a recruiting meeting at the June 30 opening of NBA free agency, league sources tell DallasBasketball.com.
The Mavs, I’m told, are working to calculate how to bring Beverley to Dallas, even though he represents an option ranking well underneath a top priority like max free agent Kemba Walker.
Feisty veteran guard Patrick Beverley is planning to grant the Dallas Mavericks a recruiting meeting at the June 30 opening of NBA free agency, league sources tell DallasBasketball.com. Beverley, late of the Los Angeles Clippers, is seen here as a coveted tier-2 star. He is infamously competitive, the sort of pain-in-the-butt player who can make interesting a Round 1 series against the vaunted Golden State Warriors (as he did this past postseason, battling with Kevin Durant), the sort of lightning rod who can cause a fan to wish to direct anger at him (ask the Dallas Mavericks!), the sort of player who due to his sheer presence — even though that presence is but 6-1 — transforms a young team into a smart one, a “soft” team into a tough one.

Patrick Beverley: That’s what I heard. Shit real huh
Sean Deveney: Sources tell me Patrick Beverley–a sensible FA target of the Bulls and Lakers–will be taking meetings with as many as 5 teams BEFORE meeting with the Clippers in 2 weeks. Clippers will be chasing max-type FAs, but Beverley won’t necessarily wait on an offer from them, I’m told.
“I’m a Chicago kid. So of course I’m open to playing for the Chicago Bulls if that’s a team that’s interested in me,” Beverley said. Still, he recognizes that his own desires may not line up with what’s best for him overall. “At the same time, any decision that is made, it’s never personal. It’s always business. I have to make the right decision for me and my family.”
He loved his time with the Clippers, who, with the potential to sign two free agents to max contracts, likely will be focused on other business first. His toughness, leadership, defense and shooting ability make him a strong fit with several teams, including the Bulls, who own significant salary-cap space. In his words, he’s “open to anything” in free agency. But to say Beverley sounds fired up about the possibility of playing for his hometown team is as much an understatement as saying he persevered to make the NBA.

Patrick Beverley has become a chic name, partly because he’s a Chicago native, mostly because he’s an incredible competitor. He fits everything this team needs, he has a starting spot waiting for him and a coach who will run through a brick wall for him. The smart play is going best-player available on a cost-controlled rookie contract in June and splurging on a veteran addition like Beverley in July
Adrian Wojnarowski: Patrick Beverley has agreed to a four-year, $25M deal to return to Houston, agent Kevin Bradbury tells Yahoo Sports.

Alex Kennedy: The New York Knicks are ramping up their pursuit of restricted free agent Patrick Beverley, per sources. The two sides are talking a lot.
Alex Kennedy: The Knicks like Patrick Beverley, but other teams are interested too including the Mavericks, Kings and Rockets (who can match any offer).
The Knicks have made signing a big man (possibly Detroit’s Greg Monroe) a priority in free agency this summer. However, they will still have an issue to work out in their backcourt — they would like to be rid of Jose Calderon, and will give Langston Galloway, one of the few bright spots on the team last year, a chance to earn more playing time going forward. One potential answer for their guard woes: Rockets free agent Patrick Beverley. A source told Sporting News at the opening of free agency that the Knicks have “major interest” in Beverley, and that the interest is mutual. The Knicks contacted Beverley shortly after free agency began.
Alex Kennedy: The Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets were the first two teams to reach out to Patrick Beverley, per sources. #TexasRivalry
Alex Kennedy: Dallas, New York, Chicago, Cleveland and, of course, Houston are among the teams interested in Patrick Beverley (@Patrick Beverley), per sources. Patrick Beverley is a restricted free agent, so the Rockets can match any offer sheet he receives. But those are the teams showing interest.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent F Cam Reynolds has agreed to a two-way deal with Milwaukee, agent @JamesDunleavy3 tells ESPN.
The Washington Wizards’ sideline probably will look slightly different for the 2019-20 season, once the team makes intended internal coaching moves. The Wizards are in the preliminary stages of a shift that would promote Jarell Christian to an NBA assistant coach and have Ryan Richman take over the head coaching duties with their G League franchise, the Capital City Go-Go, according to several people with knowledge of the plans that have not yet been finalized.
The expected in-house moves reflect only minor alterations to Brooks’s staff, a unit that has remained relatively constant in his three seasons as Washington’s head coach. The staff also consists of veteran coach Tony Brown, former player Robert Pack, who coached the Wizards during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, Mike Terpstra and Maz Trakh.
The Oakland Police Department has handed its investigation into Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri over to a district attorney, following a physical altercation last month between Mr. Ujiri and an unnamed sheriff’s deputy over access to the court following the NBA Finals. Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley received the police report into the dispute this week, her office confirmed.
