NBAchelor: The Star Edition

Just like the Bachelor begins (I think) with an introduction of the young man desperately trying to find Miss “Right” (sorry Miss Jackson), we too shall begin this saga with and introduction of our stars trying to find their beau-to-be…

D’Angelo Russell
– 23 years old
– Current team: Brooklyn Nets
– 1 All-Star appearance (East, PG)
– RFA

The favorite right now is the Timberwolves, but they would have to trade Wiggins to make that happen. Hopefully they can, because a D-Lo and KAT pairing would be nice.

Khris Middleton
– 27 years old
– Current team: Milwaukee Bucks
– 1 All-Star appearances (East, SF)
– UFA

Favorite is the Milwaukee Bucks. Will re-sign.

Klay Thompson
– 29 years old
– Current team: Golden State Warriors
– 5 All-Star appearances (West, SG)
– 3 NBA Championships
– UFA

Favorite right now is a re-signing with Golden State, where he will not play next season, rehab his knee, and make over $30 million to do it. Nice.

Kevin Durant
– 30 years old
– Current team: Golden State Warriors
– 10 All-Star appearances (West, SF)
– 2 NBA Championships
– UFA

Favorite team right now is the Brooklyn Nets, where he will be joining Kyrie on that team. First year will be spent rehabbing though.

Kyrie Irving
– 27 years old
– Current team: Boston Celtics
– 6 All-Star appearances (East, PG)
– 1 NBA Championships
– UFA

Favorite team right now is the Brooklyn Nets, where he was able to convince KD (and possibly DeAndre Jordan) to join him.

Jimmy Butler
– 29 years old
– Current team: Philadelphia 76ers
– 4 All-Star appearances (East and West, SG and SF)
– UFA

Current favorite is the 76ers. However, it is reported that it will be a sign-and-trade with the Houston Rockets or Miami Heat. Heat are the favorite is said trade occurs.

Kemba Walker
– 29 years old
– Current team: Charlotte Hornets
– 3 All-Star appearances (East, PG)
– UFA

Favorite is Celtics via sign-and-trade.

Tobias Harris
– 26 years old
– Current team: Philadelphia 76ers
– UFA

Current favorite is unknown. I have heard that the 76ers have him as the highest priority after Jimmy Butler, but also that the Clippers really want to bring him back. Big dark house candidates are Denver Nuggets (favorite), Sacramento Kings, and maybe Portland TrailBlazers.

Nikola Vucevic
– 28 years old
– Current team: Orlando Magic
– 1 All-Star appearances (East, C)
– UFA

Current favorite is the Magic, so he will be staying with the home team.

Al Horford
– 33 years old
– Current team: Boston Celtics
– 5 All-Star appearances (East, C)
– UFA

Current favorite right now is the New Orleans Pelicans. However, the Mavericks are underdogs to sign him.

Kawhi Leonard
– 28 years old
– Current team: Toronto Raptors
– 3 All-Star appearances (West and East, SF)
– 2 NBA Championships
– UFA

No idea on a favorite. I used to think it was 60-40 Clippers-Raptors, now it apparently is looking like it is 40-30-30 Lakers-Clippers-Raptors. The enigma persists.
