NBA writer, Howard Beck, joined Kyle Draper and Chris Watkins Wednesday to discuss the upcoming 2023 NBA free agency, if he expects a lot of moves to be made and where the Damian Lillard saga is right now. Plus, does Sacramento make a big splash over the next seven days?
All that and more on Chris & Co.
“I have to believe, I do believe, that there’s more to what’s going on there than just bringing back Harrison Barnes,” Beck said on the show Wednesday. “And it’s not a bad thing to bring back Harrison Barnes, it’s not a knock on him. But like, you’re not moving the ball forward if it’s just the same group.
“…All these teams that are below them, could leapfrog them if they just stand still, and they know that. I don’t think they’re gonna stand still. I think that whether they bring Barnes back and find a way to keep enough cap room to add another player, whether it’s letting Barnes walk and using, I think up to $36 million in cap room to go out and get a couple of guys, I think we’re going to see at least some substantial addition [for the Kings].”
Additional topics discussed include:
- How much movement is Howard expecting during free agency?
- How does the new CBA affect the market this year?
- Could we see Damian Lillard on the move this summer?
- Does Portland have to be active over the next few weeks?
- Is running it back for the Kings a bad thing?
