2022 NBA free agency rumours: Live updates as James Harden, 76ers discuss new deal; Bulls pay Zach LaVine


NBA free agency is moving quickly after beginning at 6 p.m. ET on Thursday, when teams could begin negotiating deals with players. However, the contracts will not be official until the moratorium period is lifted on July 6. A few hours before the official launch of free agency, Kevin Durant asked for a trade away from the Brooklyn Nets. One of the NBA’s biggest superstars is now set to switch teams this summer, and KD’s trade request will no doubt impact how teams handle their off-season business.

Zach LaVine (Bulls) and Bradley Beal (Wizards) have both agreed to max offers to return to their respective teams. The Knicks have agreed to an early deal with Jalen Brunson along with other moves. Additionally, the Eastern Conference champion Celtics improved after making a successful trade to land Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon, and are also expected to sign Danilo Gallinari. The NBA has reportedly told teams that the salary cap for next season should be set at $123.6 million, up $11.6 million from last year’s cap of $112 million. James Harden is among the best free agents available, but plans to sign a new contract with the 76ers.
