The NBA offseason is coming to an end as teams are finalizing their roster for training camps next month. Free agents left overs this offseason are now being looked into for them to complement core players of different teams. Although the chapter has not fully closed with Kyrie Irving and Carmelo Anthony still seeking to be traded before camp begins. Here are a few updates on the NBA free agency:

Kristaps Porzingis stays with Knicks

With all the rumors surrounding Kristaps Porzingis this offseason mainly due to former President of Basketball Operations of the Knicks in phil jackson, it seems like Porzingis will stay in New York and will likely be their next NBA franchise player.

RealGM Staff Report has reported that the New York Knicks have exercised their fourth-year option on Kristaps Porzingis this offseason. After him missing the exit interview last season and of course all the trade rumors surrounding the team as a whole it was very likely that the team could trade both Pozingis and Carmelo.

After the firing of Phil Jackson Porzingis then took to media that he wanted to stay with the Knicks his entire career, this subsequently led to the Knicks exercising his option this offseason.

Porzingis has been steadily becoming better with all of his average improving on his second year; he has career averages of 16.1 points, 1.9 blocks, 0.7 steals, 1.4 assists, and 7.2 rebounds while shooting 43.6% from the field and 34.6% from beyond the arc. He has become a big asset for the New York Knicks, and he is a legitimate NBA franchise player in the future and take note that he is still 22 years old.

Dominique Jones exits NBA

NBA players have started moving to the Chinese basketball league as Ty Lawson, Donte Montiejunas, and JJ Hickson has reportedly signed with Chinese teams for next season. Another one to add is Dominique Jones, as he signs a contract with the Jiangsu Tongxi this offseason as reported by David Pick.

Dominique Jones was drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2010 NBA Draft with the 25th overall pick but was then traded to the Dallas Mavericks for a three million dollar cash consideration. He made his NBA debut on 2010 and continued to play for three seasons in the NBA. He has career averages of 3.1 points, 0.1 blocks, 0.4 steals, 1.8 assists, and 1.4 rebounds while shooting 36.6% from the field.

Ever since 2013, he has traveled around the world playing basketball and now is looking to make a career in China this offseason.
