With all the drama surrounding Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers this offseason, it seems like everything else in the NBA has faded to the background. The offseason came to a frantic start, and we never expected that its ending would be just as much exciting. Let's try to step away from the Cleveland drama and break down new updates in the NBA free agency scene:

John Wall signs supermax offer extension

A couple of weeks ago we saw the Washington Wizards match the offer sheet made by the Brooklyn Nets of 106.5 million dollar deal for four years to Otto Porter this offseason, which made him the highest paid player in Washington as of the moment.

Otto Porter got paid after a career best season last year, and this indicated how committed the Washington Wizard is to keep their young core in Wall, Beal, and Porter.

That became even more likely as Shams Charania of The Vertical reported that the Wizards and John Wall have reached and agreed to a four year 170 million dollar super max deal. Wall is still under contract for two years with the Wizards, but he became eligible for the supermax deal when he made All-NBA team last season. The all-star point guard had arguably his best season last year after averaging a career high in points, assists, steals, and field goal percentage. He averaged 23.1 points, two steals, 10.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 45.1% from the field.

Nets acquire Yakuba Ouattara

The Brooklyn Nets seem to have found their footing in the rebuilding process this offseason. Recently they have acquired a young solid player with loads of potential in D'Angelo Russel, dumped the big contract of the aging Brook Lopez and have acquired some future draft picks to stabilize their future.

They made another move in acquiring young and talented players for the future, RealGM staff has reported that the Brooklyn Nets have signed Yakuba Ouattara to a two-way contract with their G-league affiliate Long Island Nets. Ouattara is a 25-year-old French professional player who tries to strive and make his way to the NBA.

Detroit Pistons sign Luis Montero

The Detroit Pistons have been fairly silent this offseason after losing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to the Los Angeles Lakers. Despite the lack of fire power with the East talent diminishing the Detroit still has a chance of reaching the playoffs next season, it seems like the Pistons are making small moves that could help them to be better in the future.

Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype has reported that Luis Montero and the Detroit Pistons have entered into a two-way contract with the Pistons and their G-league affiliate. Luis is a 24-year-old Dominican Republic Native who has his eyes sight on trying to make the NBA.
