(Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP)ExpandThe Raptors are champions, Anthony Davis is (almost officially) a Laker, and the Pelicans have drafted perhaps the most exciting rookie to enter the league in years.June has been a tumultuous, power-shifting month for the NBA. Next month is only likely to shake things up even more.This summer’s free agency, which has an earlier 3 p.m. start time on June 30, is expected to be perhaps the most consequential movement of talent the league has ever seen. An estimated 40 percent of all players are on the market, either as restricted or unrestricted free agents, or with options on their contracts. As Golden State’s long shadow over the NBA has diminished, teams are attempting to rise from the fray. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe Lakers might have made the big play of the offseason so far in trading for Davis, but a lot more moves could be happening. Here are some of the biggest storylines to follow around the NBA:SUNSET FOR THE WARRIORS?The most shocking development of the offseason might have been in the Finals themselves, when both Kevin Durant (Achilles rupture) and Klay Thompson (ACL tear) suffered injuries that are liable to keep them out for most or all of next season. Even if everything goes right for the Warriors this summer, and they keep their stars, they’ll be far over the salary cap and will have a Steph Curry and Draymond Green-led squad next season that should be far less dominant than they’ve been.This is driving up opportunism for other teams, especially in the Western Conference, to make big moves to supplement existing cores, or in the Lakers’ case, create an entirely new foundation that should compete in the playoffs.Thompson is widely believed to be a lock for re-signing in Golden State. Durant was expected to leave before the injury – it’s unclear how his forthcoming rehabilitation will affect his judgment, if at all. But there’s a very good chance that a run of five consecutive NBA Finals appearances and three titles during that window is over, or at least will be disrupted for next season.WHERE WILL LEONARD GO?No one’s stock might be higher than Kawhi Leonard’s right now, as the 27-year-old is coming off his second Finals MVP award, a championship in a new city, and is in the midst of his career prime. While he still missed a bunch of games last year due to load management with his mysterious quad injury, his tenure in Toronto proved he’s worth that risk. Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions The Irving issue has also muddled Boston, which is now bracing to lose both Irving and Al Horford, both multiple All-Star players. While they still have a young group that they’ve built around, they could be taking a step back next season after last year’s roster was rife with chemistry flaws.Another leading Eastern contender, Philadelphia, has to make a crucial decision on how to pay Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris or both. Both are widely considered max or near-max players this summer.BIG MONEY FOR BIT PLAYERSOnce you get past the major players in this class of free agents, which also includes Kemba Walker, Nikola Vucevic and Khris Middleton, you start reaching a supporting cast of characters who will nonetheless command big money. The Milwaukee Bucks, two wins away from a Finals berth last month, will have to find money for Brook Lopez (unrestricted) and Malcolm Brogdon (restricted). Helpful players on other contenders, such as Philadelphia’s J.J. Redick, Toronto’s Danny Green and the Clippers’ Patrick Beverly might be subject to some bidding wars as many contenders look for shooting and backcourt help.Expect to hear someone from a more under-the-radar group, such as Indiana’s Thaddeus Young or Portland’s Al-Farouq Aminu, land a nice payday. There are also going to be several players who will seek more money or new roles elsewhere, such as DeMarcus Cousins, DeAndre Jordan and Ricky Rubio – though their value on the market is subject to interpretation.It will be an interesting year for restricted free agents: Players such as Russell and Brogdon could receive big offer sheets from other teams. Others such as Kelly Oubre (Phoenix) and Terry Rozier (Boston) will see what their value is.center_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers The Raptors would certainly like to have him back, and Toronto has made its case in the last week of celebration with parades, hosting Leonard at local events and showering him with gratitude. Many see the Raptors as having the pieces to keep contending around Leonard, who will draw a max contract this summer.The question no one truly knows the answer to is how great the draw of home could be for the Riverside nativee. The Clippers have made strong, yet understated, plays for him, and billboards are reportedly going up around town next week. The Lakers don’t currently project to have the cap space to pay Leonard, but they’d likely try to make a pitch if they can manipulate their roster and make the room. Leonard’s inscrutable signals make it a tough read on what he might do, but wherever he goes, he could create a title favorite.BIG QUESTIONS IN THE EASTThe New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets have positioned themselves to cash in on big free agents this summer, but both are being haunted by uncertainty. For the Knicks, who missed out on Zion Williamson despite having the league’s worst record, signing Durant doesn’t make quite the immediate splash they once hoped for, and it’s unclear if they could land a second piece. The Nets are having a similar problem: Kyrie Irving is strongly rumored to favor Brooklyn, but the New York Post is among those reporting that the team is debating internally whether it would be more cost-efficient to retain All-Star D’Angelo Russell if Irving can’t also draw a second star.Related Articleslast_img read more
