When does NBA free agency start?

Top 5 Players who could be available to NBA free agency 2022

The concept of going as a free agent has fallen out of fashion in recent years. However, star players are still switching their teams by safe means of trade rather than opting for the free agency market, but this year we might see some top players go to NBA free agency.

When does NBA free agency start?

NBA free agency in 2022 is set to start officially on Thursday, June 30 at 6:00 PM ET. Kyrie Irving, Zach LaVine, Miles Bridges, and other popular NBA stars are rumoured to opt for free agency.

Kyrie Irving

Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving’s lack of availability has been a headache for the team. According to ESPN sources, he has been giving options for his trade.

Miles Bridges

Miles has really good relations with the current team and management. Even the manager, Mitch Kupchak, has made clear his intention to retain him. 

It is being reported that the Hornets are willing to get him on their roster. But that could require a starting salary of $30.5 million. Will the Hornets max out on him?

Zach LaVine

Zach LaVine, in his current situation, could get a five-year deal worth $212 million. According to several reports, the Lakers, Blazers, Mavericks, and Hawks are keeping an eye on his move.

The question is, would he really leave now? He might leave, as he seemed less committal in his end-of-season press conference.

Deandre Ayton

Will the Suns max him out now? If so, they will need to offer $177 million for his five-year contract. However, if Deandre Ayton decides that he will not accept anything less than $177 million, then it could be a situation where we might see him in NBA free agency.

Jalen Brunson

According to Marc Stein, his current team thought they could retain Jalen by offering $85-88 million for four years. Now it is confirmed that the Knicks are likely to offer him a $100 million deal. 

Will Jalen Brunson choose to go with higher pay, which is also a five-year deal offered by the Knicks?
