Patrick Beverley

Beverley has become the ultimate journeyman in the NBA. The 35-year-old guard has played for five teams in the last three seasons, spending time with the Timberwolves, Lakers, Bulls, Sixers, and the Bucks. Even though he is still a solid defender who can contribute in limited minutes, Beverley has a tendency to wear out his welcome.

He has likely done that in Milwaukee as well. The veteran got involved in an altercation with a Pacers fan as the Bucks were getting eliminated in the playoffs, receiving a multi-game suspension. Then, he got into it with a reporter whose question he refused to answer because she wasn't a subscriber to his podcast.

Therefore, it is likely that the Bucks will not be bringing Pat Bev back. He still has the reputation and name recognition to get himself a minimum deal somewhere but his days in the NBA are certainly numbered beyond this season.

Kyle Lowry

This is a rather surprising one. Kyle Lowry was widely expected to re-sign in Philadelphia but there hasn't been any progress on that front yet.

The 38-year-old signed with the Sixers mid-season and was a big part of the rotation, averaging 29 minutes per game in the regular-season and playoffs combined. Despite his age, he is still a solid role player, hitting open shots, and providing defensive intensity. Therefore, bringing the Philly native back on a minimum deal seemed like a no-brainer.

However, the six-time All-Star is still available on the market. With his veteran competence and extensive experience, he likely has plenty of suitors, so he will have no issue finding a new team. Let's hope that it is the Sixers.
