Brandon Roy, Jason Kidd, and Jamal Crawford were among the players to reach agreements with new clubs yesterday, while Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lin agreed to lucrative offer sheets that their current teams are expected to match. What will Friday bring? Here are the latest rumors on a number of free agents still on the market:
- The Suns and Bulls are the two teams "most heavily in the mix" for Michael Redd, says Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida.
- Marcus Camby will meet with the Heat tomorrow and the Knicks next, tweets Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. Feigen adds that Camby likely won't meet with the Rockets until there's resolution on Omer Asik.
- The Timberwolves have pushed their next discussion with Greg Stiemsma back to tomorrow while they determine the cap implications of their agreements with Brandon Roy and Nicolas Batum, tweets Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com adds (via Twitter) that Stiemsma is also drawing interest from the Trail Blazers and Hornets.
- Al Iannazzone of Newsday (Twitter link) is hearing that Randy Foye could be a possibility for the Knicks. In order to land both Foye and Jason Kidd, New York would have to sign-and-trade for one of them.
- The Nuggets continue to "grind it out" with JaVale McGee's reps, tweets David Aldridge of TNT. As Aldridge notes, whichever team loses out on Roy Hibbert between the Pacers and Trail Blazers could enter the mix in a big way for McGee.
