2022 NBA Free Agency Day 2: Zach LaVine Will Stay With The Bulls

2022 free agency day 2

Another day of NBA free agency is in the books, and while it wasn't as chaotic as Day 1, we still had some big names getting paid the big bucks. Day 1 saw super max deals handed out to Nikola Jokic, Devin Booker, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Bradley Beal, while Ja Morant signed his designated rookie max extension.

We saw another max contract handed out on Day 2, and the big men were seemingly the flavor of the day in which Rudy Gobert found a new home in Minnesota, as a few more of them got the bag. Here's a recap of free agency so far.

As we said before, we saw a few prominent bigs get extensions with their teams, but the biggest name is still in the market as there is still no news on DeAndre Ayton's future. The Indiana Pacers, by virtue of trading Malcolm Brogdon to the Celtics, have now cleared up enough cap to offer someone a max deal, and we wait and see if Ayton is the one for them.

There are also no updates on the James Harden front, but he is expected to return to the Sixers on a less than max deal to help the team fill out the rest of the roster. Another action-packed day awaits us tomorrow.
