The Nets will meet with the Jazz’s 29-year-old swingman, reports 16WinsARing.

Adam Joseph also reports that the Jazz will not automatically match any offer the 6’8” Australian receives from other teams. According to one report Friday, Orlando is willing to offer him $60 million over four years. He was paid $2.15 million in 2016-17.

Ingles shot 44.1 percent from three last season and 45.2 percent overall in averaging 7.1 points a game in a sixth man role. At least two other teams have interest...

In addition to his shooting prowess, Ingles is seen as a veteran presence in the locker room. He joined the Jazz in 2014 after a career in Australia, Spain and Israel.

The news would confirm what Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today tweeted out overnight.

The problem for the Nets however is that the Nets are still seen as a team without much talent, as Ohm Youngmisuk noted.

As of this time last year —10 a.m. EDT— the Nets had already signed their top free agent target, Jeremy Lin. Later the same day, they reached an agreement with Justin Hamilton, who played in Spain in 2015-16.
