NEW: Heat reportedly gets meeting with Jalen Brunson. Plus Heat-related updates on P.J. Tucker, Beal, free agent power forwards, more, with free agent floodgates sent to open in less than 24 hours: miamiherald.com/sports/spt-col…6:46 PM Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds

Harden says good-bye to Philly (but will be right back to say hello to Philly). Dejounte to Atlanta. Bradley Beal is a free man, for now. And the fun hasn’t even started yet. Free agency eve, y’all.

Bradley Beal Next Team IF not Wizards

Boston Celtics

+300

If Bradley Beal doesn’t re-sign with Wizards, BetOnline.ag has him a 3-1 shot to go to the Celtics and a 4-1 shot to go to … @Portland Trail Blazers.

I’m betting against that happening.

#RipCity

Miami Heat

+500 – 2:48 PM Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96

With the increase in 2022-23 NBA salary cap, the Wizards can offer Bradley Beal $251 million (up from $248M) over five years💰 – 2:19 PM Bradley Beal @RealDealBeal23

Only the best for King and Nala, which is why I feed them Purina @proplan Sport for optimal nutrition and performance.

Wizards still need to add more PG depth (MLE?), but it was an important trade to rebalance

Monte Morris / ?

Bradley Beal / Corey Kispert / Johnny Davis

Will Barton / Deni Avdija

Kyle Kuzma / Rui Hachimura / Isaiah Todd

Kristaps Porzingis / Daniel Gafford / Vernon Carey Jr. – 11:08 AM Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs

Interesting trade between DEN & WAS. KCP is better (and more available) than Barton WAS knew, ultimately that Beal is not a PG. Morris most certainly is, and since he never turns over the ball, will allow his offense to maximize its opportunities. – 10:47 AM Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46

Tommy Sheppard pushed the button again. Monte Morris can solve the main issue at PG position and Barton is able to scoring from distance. At the same time the Wizards did improvements and shows to Bradley Beal the direction they want to go. #Wizards

sdna.gr/mpasket/980234…10:27 AM David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc

Nuggets get a veteran 3 and D in KCP and a well-seasoned (!) backup point in Smith, while Washington addresses its massive starting PG hole w/Morris, who just turned 27, and who Wes Unseld, Jr., knows well from their time in Denver. Barton is a solid backup for Bradley Beal. – 10:24 AM Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan

Need something positive to read? Here’s Jaden Hardy’s full first interview as a Mav.

He loves to study Luka, Beal, Damian Lillard and Harden’s games.

His sister already lives in Richardson.

  NBA Central: “Bradley Beal has indicated all along that his loyalties and wanting to see it through in Washington.” – @Adrian Wojnarowski (h/t @The Jump ) pic.twitter.com/f1xVtfwPsp -via Twitter @TheNBACentral / June 29, 2022 Adrian Wojnarowski: Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal has declined his $36.4M option and become a free agent, his agent Mark Bartelstein of @Priority Sports tells ESPN. Beal is eligible to sign a 5-year max to return to Wizards – or sign elsewhere on a 4-year deal. -via Twitter @wojespn / June 29, 2022 Adrian Wojnarowski: Washington is finalizing a trade to acquire Denver’s Will Barton and Monte Morris for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith, sources tell ESPN. Yossi Gozlan: Wizards need to throw in another small salary to have this trade executed before the end of June. Doing so would allow Denver to generate a $15.6M trade exception by sliding Ish Smith into the $8.2M JaMychal Green trade exception. Nuggets are just $1M under tax with 11 players. Wizards will be roughly $11M below the tax with 12 players assuming they re-sign Bradley Beal to a maximum contract. -via Twitter @YossiGozlan / June 29, 2022
