NBA Free Agency

Free-agent point guard Raymond Felton has reached an agreement with the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources tell ESPN. According to sources, Felton’s new pact is a one-year deal at the veteran’s minimum. The 33-year-old veteran averaged 6.7 points and 2.4 assists as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers during the 2016-17 season.

 

Free-agent forward Bojan Bogdanovic has agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal with the Indiana Pacers, league sources told ESPN on Friday. The second year includes a partial guarantee of $1.5 million, sources told ESPN. The Wizards renounced his rights Friday and allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent.

 

Free-agent guard Tyreke Evans has agreed to a one-year, $3.3 million deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources told ESPN. Last season, Evans saw limited action with the Kings due to knee issues, playing in 14 games (six starts) while averaging 11.6 points and shooting 43.8 percent from 3-point range.

 

The Detroit Pistons are renouncing the rights to restricted free-agent guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, turning him into the marketplace’s No. 1 unrestricted free agent, league sources told ESPN. The Pistons have been reluctant to meet Caldwell-Pope’s $25 million-plus asking price, and the acquisition of Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley on Friday liberated Detroit to let Caldwell-Pope leave the franchise. The Brooklyn Nets plan to pursue Caldwell-Pope, angling to pair him in a young backcourt with D’Angelo Russell, league sources told ESPN. The Lakers have serious interest too, if Caldwell-Pope is willing to accept a one-year deal to preserve the franchise’s salary-cap space next year.
