KCP heads to Orlando

The Magic make a move, landing two-time champ Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. He’s getting a three-year, $66M deal in Orlando, per ESPN. Orlando is also expected to be in the sweepstakes for Paul George.

The 76ers were reportedly trying to find avenues to land both Caldwell-Pope and George. They remain the front-runner for PG, but won’t get KCP.

Clippers looking for Westbrook trade?

Russell Westbrook picked up his contract option to remain with the Clippers heading into next season. But his time in L.A. could still be coming to an end. The Clippers are reportedly looking for deals for the former NBA MVP, per Jake Fischer:

“Russell Westbrook opted into his $4 million for this 2024-25 season, and now the Clippers are working to find a trade for Westbrook, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Nuggets have already considered avenues to add Westbrook, sources said.”

Westbrook was a solid sixth man for the Clippers last season, averaging 11.1 points and 4.5 assists per game. He finished seventh in Sixth Man of the Year voting. Westbook, 35, is owed roughly $4 million in 2024-25.

Thunder making pitch to Hartenstein

The Oklahoma City Thunder have already added Alex Caruso to their young core this offseason. And now they could be looking to add a veteran big man. OKC is reportedly meeting with Isaiah Hartenstein, who is a free agent after breaking out with the Knicks last season. Hartenstein would help shore up rebounding for the Thunder, who struggled on the boards last season.

Brandon Ingram trade rumors

Brandon Ingram is one of the most intriguing names on the trade block. The Pelicans forward could be on the move after the team acquired Dejounte Murray from the Hawks over the weekend. The Sacramento Kings are reportedly interested in Ingram, who scored 20.8 points per game last season but struggled in a playoff loss against the Thunder with Zion Williamson sidelined.

Sources confirm Sacramento Kings are pursuing a trade for Brandon Ingram. I’m told Kings have had discussions with the Pelicans and it’s worth noting, Ingram was an emerging star under coach Alvin Gentry, who works in Kings front office.— Sean Cunningham (@SeanCunningham) June 30, 2024
