Patrick Beverley Reportedly Seeking Three Years, $40MM

Free agent point guard Patrick Beverley is said to be seeking a three-year deal in the $40MM range, reports Tim MacMahon of ESPN (via Twitter). According to MacMahon, the Mavericks, Bulls, Lakers, and Clippers are expected to be among the suitors for Beverley.

Although Beverley earned just over $5MM last season, it’s no surprise that he’ll be seeking a substantial raise. ESPN’s Zach Lowe and Bobby Marks recently suggested that the point guard would likely earn more than the mid-level ($9.25MM), with Marks predicting that Beverley’s annual salary could end up as high as $14-15MM. A three-year, $40MM contract would be worth about $13.3MM annually.

The Mavericks have previously been cited as a probable suitor for Beverley, with one report suggesting that the two sides viewed one another as a “perfect fit.” As MacMahon notes, Beverley’s agent Bill Duffy also represents Luka Doncic and is “intrigued” by the possibility of pairing his two clients in Dallas. The Mavs project to have more than $29MM in cap space.

The Bulls and Lakers have also been linked to Beverley, with reports indicating that there’s mutual interest between the veteran point guard and his hometown team in Chicago. The Bulls project to have about $23MM in cap room and reportedly want to use some of it on a point guard. The Lakers’ situation remains very much in flux, but Beverley would make sense if the club plans to split up its cap room (likely $24-32MM) on two or three players.

The Clippers, of course, would have interest in bringing back Beverley after he averaged 7.6 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 3.8 APG with a .407/.397/.780 and great defense in 78 games for the team last season. Like the Lakers though, they’ll be pursuing bigger fish, so there may be timing issues if Beverley wants to make a quick decision.

  1. as a mavs fan, i dont want Beverly for that much.i rather just trade for Marcus smart…

    • CursedRangers

      Agreed. That’s a steep price to pay. Plus it locks us out of getting a better player

    • mazzith

      I doubt the Mavs have assets to trade for Smart as we owe 2 1st round picks currently to Knicks for KP. Both players price wise would cost the same salary wise though.

    Lakers should sign this guy and sign Green at SG. Bring back Lopez off the bench along with Korver and that’s a decent team with 2 all stars, some shooters and some defense.

    • acarneglia

      You could also look at guys like Trevor Ariza and James Ennis. Maybe Pau Gasol for depth at C

    • By the time you brought in two of the Beverly, Green, Lopez convo you are out of cap space. Not to mention why would Lopez leave starting in Mil to come off the bench in LA Korver is still under contract and there have been no talks of a buyout

    • x%sure

      Lopez & Beverly are getting paid this year. All 15 roster slos drain about 900k automatically but ideally, you want some warm bodies there. Too much dreaming going on!

  3. Wouldn’t mind the Knicks going after him, especially if they land a single superstar. Add two pieces like a Beverley and another quality player to create some depth.

    Since Smart is going to start for the Cs, what do you think the Mavs have that they’d be interested in?

    • bigs like dwight powell. or just a picks, opens up more cap room for celtics. and smart isnt starting… it will be kemba, brown and tatum.

  5. jordokmiller

    I’d be fine with the Mavs spending their cap that way instead of blowing it all on Horford. Maybe sign Beverley and either Green or Redick

    Lakers sign dlo for 4/80 then sign beverly 3/36. Theres you front court, then sign vets on min contract and go over cap and use mle on lopez if he doesnt sign with bucks.

  7. DynamiteAdams

    Honestly, a pretty fair rate for what he does. Not to mention he’s been kinda underpaid the past 2 years.

  8. Lol I wanted him in Dallas until this report. 13.3 mill / year for a 30 yo with these stats?

    7.6 PPG, 3.8 APG, 5.0 RPG, 40.7 FG%, 39.7 3P%, 78.0 FT%, lowest SPG rate of his career.

    I’d be fine offering 3/27 or 4/32. 3/40 is ridiculous.

  9. x%sure

    It’s good to finally have a number for Beverly out there. Everybody said they wanted him, thinking of him as someone who is happy to work for less than his value. WAKE-UP CALL. Supply & demand– there’s not many like him. Something had to give.
