Hello everyone! Welcome to the NBA Offseason thread. Our Wizards didn't do too well this season, but Bradley Beal is our man and John Wall will be back and better than ever in 2022. Here are some important dates coming up, go Wiz!

May 14: NBA Draft lottery

This one of the most important dates of the Wizards' offseason. They will have the sixth-best odds. If they get lucky and land a top-four pick, it could change their outlook significantly.

May 14-19: NBA Draft Combine

Top NBA Draft prospects will take measurements like height, weight, wingspan and vertical leap. The Wizards will also get a chance to interview candidates for their first round pick.

May 30: NBA Finals begin

June 20: NBA Draft

The Wizards will have a high first round pick, which should be the first major move for the new GM. The team does not currently own a second round selection.

June 24: NBA Awards show (MVP, defensive player of the year, etc.)

The All-NBA teams will have already been announced some time in late May, so there may not be much reason for Wizards fans to watch the NBA Awards. Their best shot may be Thomas Bryant for most improved and he is a significant longshot.

June 29: Deadline for all player and team options

This will be a very important day for the Wizards. They have to decide on Jabari Parker's team option worth $20 million for next season and Dwight Howard will have to make the call on his 2019-20 player option worth $5.6 million.

June 30: Last day of league year, deadline for teams to make restricted free agents qualifying offers of 125% of their salary; last day to sign extensions; figures for next salary cap year determined

The Wizards will have to decide on restricted free agents Bobby Portis, Parker, Tomas Satoransky, Bryant, Chasson Randle and Sam Dekker for qualifying offers.

July 1: First day of new league year, free agent moratorium begins allowing teams to negotiate with players and reach verbal agreements

This is when all the fun begins. Though the Wizards could technically have some real money to spend in free agency, it all depends on whom they re-sign.

July 5-15: NBA Summer League

The Wizards will have their first round pick in action for the first time in Las Vegas. Also likely to be on the summer league team are Troy Brown Jr., their 2018 first round pick, as well as some of their G-League mainstays like Devin Robinson and Chris Chiozza.

July 6 (12:01 p.m.): Moratorium ends to sign free agents and make trades

Whatever the Wizards do in the first few days of free agency and the trading period can become official once this deadline passes.

July 13: Deadline for teams to revoke qualifying offers to RFAs

July 15: Deadline to sign first round picks

September 5: Deadline to sign second round picks

September, TBA: Training camp opens

The Knicks will get Ja Morant or Zion Williamson.

They will trade a combination of anyone but Ja Morant or Zion Williamson and picks/players to get AD.

They will get KD and/or Kyrie.

I'm speaking it into existence.

Love Cam Johnson in OKC, love Coby White at nine for whomever gets him that low.

This Truehoop piece really went after Jeannie Buss.
Were the Lakers ever really magic?

Can Jeanie Buss build that? Not according to a TrueHoop source who knows her well:

She loves this team. But she is mired in a kind of thinking that caused this trouble. She has surrounded herself with a collection of people who give her the validation she so desperately seeks.​

In the long view, she has to look to sell the team. It will take much deeper pockets to compete in this landscape, in that city. I don’t believe she has the temperament nor the attention span to look at things in a long-term view. Everything seems to be year to year. It’s a structural issue.​

I wonder what teams will want to trade for the Pistons expiring contracts and what that means as far as players we get for the next few years. Point guard position will be interesting. I haven't sat down and looked at what teams may want to free up money for following year free agents.
