Review of current rumors and news from the National Basketball Association on the morning of June 20, 2023 from the “Championship”.

Jimmy Butler calls Damien Lillard to Miami – David Aldridge

As we wrote yesterday, the Miami Heat management intends to “think big”; for this reason, he will focus on an attempt to acquire Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damien Lillard.

And helping in this is the club’s active light forward Jimmy Butler, who Aldridge says resorted to drafting Lillard after the Bradley Beal trade to the Phoenix Suns.

“Miami’s priority is Damien Lillard and Jimmy Butler is very involved. While Washington wanted Miami to offer several first-round picks for Bradley Beal, it doesn’t matter now: Beal just wanted to play in Phoenix, according to an article in The Athletic.

However, Lillard remains loyal to the team that drafted him in 2012. “From everything I heard, Lillard was number one on the hit list. Damien wants to play for Portland, he wants this team to only get better,” added Shams Charania, an insider for The Athletic.

Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul with the Clippers – Lowe Murray

Columnist Lowe Murray, in an article in The Athletic, pointed out that the Los Angeles Clippers don’t mind the simultaneous presence of guards Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul on the team.

The Clippers won’t close the door on Westbrook for sure, even if they can get Chris Paul back. I was told about this by authorized people who have no right to speak in public,” Murray wrote.

Notably, according to Shams Charania, both the Los Angeles Clippers and (note) Golden State Warriors called Phoenix Suns general manager James Jones and asked about Chris Paul.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times made it clear: Should the 38-year-old go with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Lakers are willing to offer the player a veteran-only minimum.

In any case, it is interesting if Paul will start games as a substitute player, being in a championship contending team.

Will James Harden stay in Philly? —Keith Pompey

Star point guard James Harden, though he could return to the Houston Rockets next offseason, hasn’t ruled out staying with Joel Embiid with the Philadelphia 76ers yet.

“For the Sixers, Harden’s return doesn’t seem as scary as it did a month ago. My sources say the Sixers are now more optimistic that Harden will sign a new contract,” Pompey wrote in an op-ed in The Philadelphia Inquirer.

“I bet if you poll 50 front office staff from different clubs, most will assume Harden will return to Philadelphia,” added ESPN pundit and analyst Zach Lowe.

Something is going to happen to Zion Williamson – Bill Simmons

Well-known journalist Bill Simmons shared some inside information about New Orleans Pelicans star power forward Zion Williamson. According to Simmons, New Orleans will soon get rid of the basketball player.

“About Zion: This is the more subplot. My source said yesterday that he might not be at the Pelicans on Thursday or Friday,” Simmons said.

During the 2022 offseason, New Orleans attempted to trade Williamson. Apparently, the attempts will continue this summer.

As well as the deal involving Bradley Beal – Adrian Wojnarowski and John Gambadoro

According to insider Adrian Wojnarowski, in addition to Bradley Beal, guard Jordan Goodwin and power forward Isaiah Todd, who was selected 31st overall in the 2021 draft, will go to the Phoenix Suns. Thodd is guaranteed $1.8 million for the 2023/2024 season.

Arizona Sports 98.7 FM host and insider John Gambadoro brought up the topic of Bradley Beal and the Miami Heat again.

“I don’t think Miami was that interesting for Bradley Beal. Even if Miami and Beal had obvious mutual interest, the Heat still couldn’t offer a better deal than the Phoenix Suns.”
