5. The Timberwolves have finalized the trade for Ricky Rubio

There is still no word on a deal for James Harden as talks between the Rockets and Nets have stalled. Similarly the Knicks have reportedly backed out of Russell Westbrook trade talks.

There were still other major stories circulating on Friday.

Miscellaneous

1. De’Aaron Fox and the Kings agreed to a 5 year, maximum salary extension starting in 2021-2022. The deals ranges from $163 million and has incentives to reach a supermax of up to $196 million.

2. John Wall has made it clear that he would like to be traded from the Wizards.

3. The Raptors have committed to play in Tampa Bay, Florida for their home games for the 2020-2021 season

The NBA free agency has been busy over recent days with the condensed off-season resulting in small time frames for typical events such as the draft and free agency.

Star players including Anthony Davis and Brandon Ingram have yet to sign deals as well as Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet.

The watch on the weekend will be tense as more teams look to better their roster for another title run in the 2020-2021 season.
