John Hammond has agreed to a five-year deal to become Orlando's new GM. Hammond has served as Milwaukee's GM since 2008, and some of his more impressive accomplishments include drafting Giannis Antetokounmpo with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft and also orchestrating a sign-and-trade deal that sent Brandon Jennings to Detroit in exchange for Brandon Knight and Khris Middleton.

John Wall    G  Wizards

 

 

The Wizards "top priority" this offseason will be signing John Wall to an extension, according to CSN Washington. Wall is coming off the best season of his career. In 2016-17, Wall became just the third player in NBA history to average at least 23 points, 10 assists and two steals per game. Becuase he was named to an All-NBA team, he is eligible to sign a Designated Player Veteran Extension this summer. The extension would be worth $168 million over four years, beginning in 2019-20. However, according to the report, Wall "wants to see a bigger picture plan on where the franchise is headed before committing."
