ANGLES LAND A NEW TEAM

Australian marksman Joe Ingles has joined the Milwaukee Bucks, as revealed by his superstar wife Renae Ingles in an all-time social media post.

Ingles left the Utah Jazz in heartbreaking fashion after suffering an ACL injury, ending a long and successful stint there, but will now team up with superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo in Milwaukee.

Ingles, 34, averaged 7.2 points, 3.5 assists and 2.6 rebounds last year.

The deal is worth US$6.5 million, according to Yahoo Sports.

Fellow Aussie Patty Mills has signed a two-year, $14.5 million deal to stay with the Nets, ESPN reports. he initially opted to become a free agent before signing the new contract.

KNICKS GET A POINT GUARD SUPERSTAR

The New York Knicks have a point guard after a decade of pain in that position.

Mavericks star Jalen Brunson reportedly signed a whopping four-year, $110 million deal – far more than Dallas was willing to pay to retain him – while the Knicks had to shed a host of veterans to create room in their salary cap to afford the star.

Kemba Walker, Alec Burks and Nerlens Noel were each ousted by Brooklyn, as they gave up the 11th pick in the draft.

Brunson, 25, had a career-best year in points (16.3), assists (4.8), rebounds (3.9) and minutes (31.9). He guided the Mavericks to the Western Conference Finals by posting 21.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists in the playoffs, and rose in the absence of Luka Doncic in the first round.

THE SIXERS MAKE MOVEMENTS

Rockets guard Trevelin Queen has joined the 76ers on a two-year, $3.3 million deal, according to Yahoo Sports.

Philly also landed 29-year-old Danuel House from the Knicks on a two-year contract.

The Athletic reports that 37-year-old veteran PJ Tucker will join the 76ers on a three-year, $33.2 million deal with the Heat.

The Heat will retain Victor Oladipo on a one-year contract, giving him another chance after an injury-plagued season saw him appear just eight times.

The Sixers are also hoping to lock James Harden on a reduction deal, with ESPN reporting a meeting will take place between the two parties this weekend.

JOKIC LANDS REGISTRATION AGREEMENT

In one of the first trades of the free agency period, Nikola Jokic made history.

The two-time NBA MVP has signed a five-year, $264 million deal with the Denver Nuggets according to The Athletic.

This is the richest contract in NBA history. The 27-year-old hit career highs last season with 27.1 points and 13.8 rebounds per game.
