Kerr: Stars evading signed deals 'real problem' for National Basketball Association

  • Steve Kerr greets Anthony Davis during practice for the 2017 NBA All Star Game

"I'm gonna say this right now: don't be surprised if Anthony Davis ends up with the Bulls".

"That's a real problem that the league has to address and that the players have to be careful with", he continued. "But the Davis stuff was really kind of groundbreaking - and hopefully not a trend, because it's bad for the league".

Kerr said it would be one thing if a player were to reach an agreement with a team, acknowledging it would be best for the two to part ways, which he suggested was the case with Westbrook.

But Davis was still able to leverage his way out of New Orleans via a Lakers trade ahead of the draft - even with a year remaining on his contract - and according to Kerr, it marks a trend that could be bad for the league.

Somalia's information minister Mohamed Abdi Hayir said six officials were killed and six others were wounded. The mayor, Abdirahman Omar Osman, was in critical condition with head and stomach injuries, officials said.

"There's a way to move and a way to not move", Kerr said.

As examples of the proper "way to move", Kerr pointed to the decisions of LeBron James, who signed with the Lakers previous year, and Durant - both when Durant went to Golden State and Brooklyn. "On one hand, there's an expectation if you have a contract and it's guaranteed that the team is going to meet the terms of the contract, and the expectation on the other side is the player is going to meet the terms of the contract". And while Golden State's head coach didn't criticize those who went to a new team in free agency, he did have a problem with Davis' trade request out of New Orleans. You sign contracts, you play them out and you move on.

If the league doesn't take action, we could see more stars leveraging trades with multiple years remaining on contracts.

National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver has repeatedly said he wishes trade demands "were handled behind closed doors" to avoid franchises being involved in very public tugs of war over the teams' and players' best interests. "Had we lost Kevon, we would've been in big trouble because - I said it late past year - he's become one of our foundational pieces". It'll just lead to too many players not honoring the contracts they signed with teams, which will lead to stalemates.
