76ers rumors: Philadelphia sends Jimmy Butler to Heat in sign-and-trade, inks Al Horford to 4-year deal Here are three takeaways from free agency so far:The Nets are winningIt appears like Brooklyn is acquiring two of the top three free agents that hit the market this summer in Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.Both Durant and Irving are prepping to sign multi-year deals, according to ESPN, which will surely make the Nets a top contender in the Eastern Conference for years to come. Related News Knicks address missing out on Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving: ‘We continue to be upbeat and confident’ Free agents Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are taking less than the max to allow DeAndre Jordan to get the $10M annual salary with Brooklyn, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2019Even though Durant likely won’t play at all in 2019-20 because of his Achilles injury, Brooklyn has a lethal mix of star power and developing young talent that seems poised to make some noise.Utah is sneakily making significant upgradesThe Jazz didn’t sign the biggest superstars available, but did acquire some quality players that could make them considerably better next season.Utah traded with the Grizzlies to bring in a talented, all-around point guard in Mike Conley to pair with Donovan Mitchell in its backcourt. It also reportedly acquired an underrated wing in 6-8 Bojan Bogdanovic.Conley is a much better scorer than Ricky Rubio and will give the Jazz a higher offensive ceiling. Bogdanovic shot 42.5% from behind the arc in 2018-19 and has solid versatility, which will allow him to play at three different positions.The Jazz got better at two starting spots and finished fifth in the Western Conference last year. They are a serious threat to surpass that mark in 2019-20, and they did this without losing any major pieces.Things don’t look good for the KnicksNew York was rumored to be among the favorites to land Durant and Irving all year, but obviously that didn’t work out.It moved Kristaps Porzingis to Dallas in what was likely an attempt to free up max slots for stars, but reportedly hesitated to offer Durant max money. The Knicks were also hoping to get former Duke star Zion Williamson in the 2019 NBA Draft but got RJ Barrett at No. 3 overall instead. NBA free agency officially began Sunday, and it was eventful.Quite a few teams made notable moves to adjust their rosters, and some had more desirable outcomes than others. Barrett is still an elite prospect, but Kevin Knox, Dennis Smith Jr., Mitchell Robinson and Allonzo Trier probably won’t help him turn New York into a contender anytime soon. Reportedly landing Julius Randle was a bright spot for the Knicks, but their free agency looks like it will be extremely underwhelming, considering the expectations they started the year with.
