With the new CBA in effect, the NBA offseason has begun, and while this year’s crop of free agents won’t be as impressive as in years past, plenty of activity is expected throughout the league.
After Thursday night’s NBA Draft, clubs can start talking to undrafted players about contracts at 6 p.m. ET on Friday, June 30. While players can negotiate new contracts anytime, most deals cannot be legally binding until Thursday, July 6, at 12:01 p.m. ET.
While James Harden has exercised his player option for the next 2023-24 season, he and the 76ers are “beginning to work together in exploring trade scenarios.”
Since Harden signed a two-year deal with the Sixers last summer, he will not be available for an extension this offseason, as Spotrac’s Keith Smith reported. Next summer, he will be a free agent who may sign with any team.
Barnes and the Kings agreed to a three-year, $54 million deal extension on the eve of free agency. Barnes was a pivotal veteran for the Kings last year, averaging 15.0 ppg while also pulling down 4.5 rpg.
Harden’s fortunes have not improved in the playoffs. He played poorly in his lone postseason game for the Brooklyn Nets, an Eastern Conference semifinal loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in 2021. He blamed a strained left hamstring for the poor showing in Philadelphia’s second-round loss to the Miami Heat the following year.
