This offseason could change the landscape of the NBA. Find out where the biggest names signed in our free agency tracker.


Kawhi Leonard is signing with the Los Angeles Clippers. And he convinced Paul George to come with him. Leonard signed a four-year, $142 million max contract. He also helped convince George to request a trade to the Clippers sending Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari, four future unprotected first-round picks, a protected first-round pick from Miami and two pick swaps to the Thunder.

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are headed to the Brooklyn Nets. It didn’t take long for the biggest news of the night to break. Durant and Irving will reportedly both agree to four-year deals with Brooklyn.

D’Angelo Russell is headed to the Warriors. It took hours after the Kevin Durant signing was announced for the full ramifications to unfold but apparently, Durant is going to Brooklyn on a sign-and-trade, with D’Angelo Russell, Shabazz Napier and Treveon Graham going to Golden State. As part of this deal, Andre Iguodala was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies along with a first-round pick.

Kemba Walker is headed to the Celtics. It’s been rumored all week, but Kemba has made it official, taking over for Kyrie Irving as the new point guard for the Celtics.

Tobias Harris is staying in Philadelphia. Finally finding a long-term home, Harris will help the 76ers continue building for the future on a five-year, $180 million deal.

Klay Thompson is staying in Golden State. It’s not like, official, official. But apparently this is all hunky-dory and no one is in a rush to get something signed when everyone has already agreed.

Jimmy Butler will be the top dog for the Miami Heat. It took a sign-and-trade that has Josh Richardson headed back to the 76ers, but Butler will be leading the Heat next year, proud owner of a new four-year, $142 million contract. This deal became increasingly complicated over the past few days and now includes Hassan Whiteside going to the Trail Blazers, and Portland sending Meyers Leonard and Mo Harkless to the Clippers.

Al Horford is going to the Philadelphia 76ers. Signing Horford softens the blow of losing Butler, pulling a key contributor for a top competitor and helping to solve a backup center issue that was exposed in the playoffs. Horford’s contract in Philadelphia is reportedly for four years and $109 million.

Terry Rozier will join the Charlotte Hornets. The Celtics, Hornets and Nets have engaged in a menage-point-guard. Irving, Boston’s starter from last season, will head to Brooklyn. Rozier, Boston’s back-up last season, will head to Charlotte to replace Kemba Walker, who will join the Celtics. The mechanics of Rozier heading to Charlotte will involve a sign-and-trade which could help the Celtics create some additional assets.

Khris Middleton will stay with the Milwaukee Bucks. Middleton blossomed into an elite two-way player next to Giannis Antetokounmpo and was rewarded with a five-year, $178 million deal that will keep Milwaukee’s core together.

George Hill and Brook Lopez will return to the Bucks. Both veterans found new utility in Milwaukee’s explosive season — Lopez leaning into his rebirth as an elite floor-stretching big man, Hill as a versatile stop-gap who was particularly important in the playoffs. Both have re-signed in Milwaukee — Lopez on a four-year, $52 million deal, Hill for three years and $29 million. These signings are particularly important given the hits Milwaukee has taken to their its depth today, with Nikola Mirotic heading back to Barcelona and Malcolm Brogdon going to Indiana on a sign-and-trade.

Robin Lopez will join the Milwaukee Bucks. The details haven’t been announced as of this writing but Lopez will join his brother and hijinx are definitely coming.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo will join his brother with the Bucks. The two-year deal probably won’t affect their cap or their rotation much, but it should at least keep Giannis happy.

DeMarcus Cousins is going to the Lakers. After injuries knocked him out of the playoffs, Cousins still couldn’t find the big deal he was looking for last year. He will join Anthony Davis and LeBron James on a one-year deal.

Patrick Beverley is staying with the Los Angeles Clippers. They were reportedly eyeing a top-tier free agent but keeping Beverley on a three-year, $40 million contract is still a victory.

J.J. Redick will join the New Orleans Pelicans. After helping elevate Philadelphia’s young core, Redick, one of the best shooters on the market, will reportedly join the Pelicans on a two-year, $26.5 million deal.

Darius Miller will stay with the Pelicans. His two-year, $14 million contract ensures the Pelicans hang on to their best perimeter shooter from last season.

Dewayne Dedmon is the Sacramento Kings’ new center. Willie Cauley-Stein is reportedly headed out and Dedmon makes for an interesting replacement on his reported three-year, $41 million deal. He is a solid rim protector and has some stretch ability as well.

Thad Young is now a Chicago Bull. After a solid run with the Indiana Pacers, cementing his ability as a two-way forward and transition threat, Young has joined the Bulls on a three-year, $41 million deal.

Boban Marjanovic has joined the Mavericks. The NBA’s friendliest giant signed a two-year, $7 million deal with Dallas where he’ll likely continue to make an impact in short minutes.

Delon Wright is going to Dallas. Wright was traded from the Raptors to the Grizzlies as part of the Marc Gasol trade last winter but obviously was looking for something else. A developing defender and secondary creator, Wright could be a very useful piece for the Mavs. He will be moved on a three-year, $24 million sign-and-trade that will have Dallas sending a pair of second-round picks back to the Grizzlies.

Tomas Satoransky is joining the Chicago Bulls. He will reportedly arrive there via a sign-and-trade with the Wizards, as the proud owner of a new three-year deal.

Kristaps Porzingis is staying with the Dallas Mavericks. The writing was on the wall with this one but the Mavericks have made sure Porzingis’ restricted free agency went fast, inking him to a five-year, $158 million deal.

Harrison Barnes is staying with the Kings. This one had also been reported earlier in the week but, after a mid-season trade, Barnes will stay with the Kings on a four-year, $85 million deal.

Trevor Ariza is going to the Kings. The veteran swingman will reportedly sign a two-year, $25 million deal.

Ivica Zubac is staying with the Clippers. He was traded to the team last winter and agreed to a four-year, $28 million contract to stay with the team. His size will be important as Los Angeles rebuilds around their strong perimeter players.

Cory Joseph is joining the Kings. Sacramento was active on the first day of free agency and Joseph’s three-year, $37 million contract will give the Kings more depth and experience.

Dwight Powell has re-upped with the Mavericks on a three-year, $33 million deal.

Nikola Vucevic cashed in on his career-year with the Magic and is staying in Orlando. They made it known earlier this week that they had every intention of rewarding Vucevic and the result was a four-year, $100 million deal.

Terrence Ross is also staying with the Magic. Like Vucevic, Ross turned a career-year into a big new deal, reportedly worth four years and $45 million.

Al-Farouq Aminu is joining the Magic. A busy first few hours of free agency has the Magic adding — you guessed it — another long, athletic big man. Aminu played well the past few seasons in Portland and landed a three-year, $29 million deal in Orlando.

Jake Layman will join the Timberwolves. His three-year, $11.5 million deal could net Minnesota bench production at a very valuable price.

Michael Carter-Williams is re-signing with the Magic. The one-year deal will help preserve some of Orlando’s admittedly thing backcourt depth.

DeAndre Jordan is joining Kyrie and Durant in Brooklyn. The reported four-year, $10 million deal only works thanks to Kyrie and Durant both agreeing to accept slightly less than their max possible salaries.

Derrick Rose is a Piston. The darkest timeline is here — Rose to Detroit on a two-year, $15 million contract.

Tim Frazier will join the Detroit Pistons on a one-year deal. Frazier will replace Ish Smith, who left for the Wizards.

Jonas Valanciunas is staying with the Memphis Grizzlies. A strong finish to the season after being traded from the Raptors made an impression in Memphis and Valanciunas will stay put on a three-year, $45 million deal.

Nico Melli is joining the Pelicans. Melli was MVP of the Euroleague last season and the 28-year-old will add more veteran scaffolding to the young core the Pelicans are assembling. His contract is reportedly two-year, $8 million.

Derrick Favors is headed to the Pelicans. Details have not yet been reported but ESPN’s Zach Lowe has Favors headed to New Orleans, joining what has already become an impressive, potentially playoff-ready roster.

Jordan Bell is leaving for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Bell looked like a developing athletic big for the Warriors but inconsistent effort and attention kept him out of the rotation. In Minnesota, he should have an opportunity to earn big minutes next to Karl-Anthony Towns with Taj Gibson headed to the Knicks.

Garrett Temple is going to the Brooklyn Nets. After landing Kyrie and Durant, adding Temple gives the Nets another versatile veteran defender who can space the floor. At two-years, $10 million, his contract is an excellent value.

Gerald Green and Danuel House are staying with the Houston Rockets. Green’s deal is reportedly for one year. House was rewarded for a breakthrough season with a three-year, $11.1 million deal.

Austin Rivers will also be back with the Houston Rockets. The reported two-year deal will help Houston hold onto a key contributor as they look to build towards another deep playoff run.

Rudy Gay will be back with the San Antonio Spurs. The veteran swingman enjoyed a career renaissance with the Spurs and the two-year, $32 million deal should keep the good times rolling.

DeMarre Carroll is moving to the San Antonio Spurs. The veteran combo forward is leaving the Nets and reportedly signing a three-year, $21 million deal in San Antonio.

Marcus Morris is joining the Spurs. He proved himself to be an extremely valuable piece in Boston over the past few seasons and his two-year, $20 million deal could be a great value for San Antonio.

Ricky Rubio is the Suns’ new point guard. Rumors this week repeatedly linked him to the Pacers but they apparently found another solution (more on that later). Rubio signed a three-year, $51 million deal in Phoenix to run the offense next to Devin Booker.

Malcolm Brogdon and Jeremy Lamb are the Pacers new starting backcourt. Victor Oladipo won’t return from injury until later in the season and, in the meantime, the Pacers have a new set of starting guards. Lamb is leaving the Hornets after a strong season. Brogdon is coming in a sign-and-trade, which blew up the Rubio negotiations. Brogdon will get a five-year, $85 million contract and the Pacers will send a first-round and two second-round picks to Milwaukee.

Bojan Bogdanovic is headed to the Utah Jazz. While the Pacers locked down their backcourt they’ve lost their starting frontcourt from last season. Thad Young signed with the Bulls and Bogdanovic is headed to Utah on a four-year, $73 million contract, where his shooting and playmaking will be a welcome addition.

Thomas Bryant will be back with the Wizards. After a breakout campaign cemented him as an NBA rotation player, Bryant has re-signed with Washington on a three-year, $25 million deal.

Ish Smith is joining the Wizards. The reliable backup should be in line for plenty of minutes as John Wall recovers from injury and a two-year, $12 million deal is a reasonable value.

Mike Scott is staying with the 76ers. Losing J.J. Redick is a blow to Philadelphia’s depth and shooting but keeping Scott on a two-year, $8.9 million deal helps.

Rodney Hood will be back with the Trail Blazers (and so will Damian Lillard). Hood used a strong postseason run to help earn himself a two-year, $16 million opportunity to keep playing as a third-guard for the Blazers. And, in bigger news, the Blazers locked up Lillard to a four-year, $194 supermax extension. Lillard wasn’t a free agent but keeping him in Portland for the next four years is still a huge deal for the NBA landscape.

Nerlens Noel will be back with the Thunder. Terms of the deal haven’t been reported yet but Noel was a solid defensive contributor and could be a big piece if the Thunder continue to shop Steven Adams this summer.

Julius Randle is Plan B for the Knicks. Taj Gibson is Plan C?. After missing out on both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the Knicks have reportedly agreed with Randle on a three-year, $63 million deal. Taj Gibson has agreed to a two-year deal, that will take up another $20 million.

Reggie Bullock is going to the Knicks. The reliable outside shooter reportedly agreed to a two-year, $21 million contract.

Wayne Elling is also going to the Knicks. More outside shooting help is coming to New York, on a two-year, $16 million contract.

Bobby Portis is joining the Knicks. Portis cashed in on a strong season with the Wizards, landing a two-year, $31 million deal from New York, joining an increasingly crowded frontcourt.

Ed Davis is headed to the Utah Jazz. Adding big man depth near the end of a busy day in free agency, the Jazz landed Davis on a two-year, $10 million contract.

Mike Muscala has signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder. This deal, with the terms not yet reported, adds shooting to the Thunder’s big man rotation, something they’ve been sorely lacking the past few seasons.

Mario Hezonja is joining the Trail Blazers. Still tenuously hanging onto an NBA career, Hezonja has agreed to a one-year deal in Portland.

Kevan Looney is staying with the Warriors. Golden State was able to keep him on a three-year, $15 million deal, preserving a key rotation player amid a veteran exodus.

Seth Curry is headed back to the Dallas Mavericks. Curry made an impression in Dallas before spending a year in Portland. After a strong playoff performance, he’s earned a four-year, $32 million deal from the Mavericks.

Frank Kaminsky is joining the Phoenix Suns. Kaminsky had become irrelevant in Charlotte but his size and shooting could be useful for Phoenix, especially on an inexpensive, two-year, $10 million deal.

Isaiah Thomas is headed to the Wizards. This one-year deal could be the last chance for Thomas to salvage an NBA career but he’ll certainly get a chance for Washington with John Wall out.

Wesley Matthews is going to the Milwaukee Bucks. Matthews played for Dallas and Indiana last season and will get the chance to launch plenty of 3s for the Bucks. He’s no longer the strong wing defender he used to be but his shooting touch should keep him in the rotation.

Edmond Sumner re-signs with the Pacers. Sumner hasn’t broken into the rotation in his two seasons with the team but has impressed enough for Indiana to keep him around on a three-year deal.

Richaun Holmes is joining the Kings. Holmes has played well everywhere he’s been but had the misfortunate of playing behind several firmly entrenched young centers. Going to Sacramento on a two-year, $10 million deal with just Dewayne Dedmon and Harry Giles in front of him could create an opportunity.

J.J. Barea will be back with the Mavericks, on a one-year, minimum contract.

Enes Kanter is joining the Celtics. Kanter parlayed a strong postseason run with the Trail Blazers into a two-year, $10 million offer from Boston. With both Al Horford and Aron Baynes out of the picture, there could be plenty of minutes available.

Maxi Kleber has re-upped with the Mavericks. Kleber, who impressed with his defense and shooting, was rewarded with a four-year, $32 million deal.

Troy Daniels has signed with the Lakers. Daniels is a fringe rotation player on a one-year deal, but he’s a strong shooter and will have a chance to make himself useful.

Jared Dudley has signed with the Lakers. Dudley’s defense, leadership and 3-point shooting will definitely play a big role in Los Angeles’ plans.

Danny Green will join the Lakers. The veteran outside shooter will be penciled in as the starting 2-guard, with shooting and defense as key attributes.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee will both be back with the Lakers. Caldwell-Pope landed a two-year, $16 million deal, McGee’s is for two years and $8 million. A lot will be riding on their ability to provide average production around LeBron and Anthony Davis.

Quinn Cook will join the Lakers. He comes on a two-year, $6 million deal, with valuable experience and outside shooting.

Elfrid Payton has signed with the Knicks. This is another low-risk move for New York, taking a flyer on Payton with a two-year, $16 million deal that should help stabilize things for their young players, without tying up their future cap space.

Anthony Tolliver is joining the Trail Blazers. Tolliver signed a one-year deal and his shooting and defensive versatility should help cover for the loss of Mo Harkless.

Dorian Finney-Smith is staying with the Mavericks. Finney-Smith made himself a key part of the Mavericks rotation as a long wing defender with a developing offensive game. He’ll stay with the team on a three-year, $12 million contract.

Daniel Theis is staying with the Celtics. Theis will be increasingly important with Horford and Baynes both departing. He has signed a two-year with Boston.

Rodney McGruder is going to the Clippers. The veteran wing-defender has agreed to a three-year, $15 million contract that still preserves cap space for the Clippers to offer a max contract.

Wilson Chandler is joining the Nets. Chandler signed a one-year deal and his defense and experience should be useful as they pivot towards championship contention with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Emmanuel Mudiay is heading to the Utah Jazz. Mudiay impressed enough in his brief stint in New York to secure a one-year offer from Utah.

Jeff Green has signed with the Utah Jazz. Green secured a one-year, $2.5 million offer and will add frontcourt depth to a team looking to make a deep playoff run.

Luke Kornet is headed to the Bulls. Kornet secured a two-year deal and will have a chance to earn some frontcourt minutes with his 3-point shooting ability.

Ryan Arcidiacono is staying with the Bulls. He earned a spot in the rotation with his aggressive defense and heady playmaking, and was rewarded with a three-year deal to stay in Chicago.

Glenn Robinson is joining the Warriors. Robinson signed a two-year deal and should definitely be able to earn minutes with his shooting and defense in a depleted Golden State wing rotation.

Tyus Jones has signed an offer sheet with the Grizzlies. The Timberwolves are unlikely to match the three-year, $24 million deal, sending the restricted free agent to Memphis. Jones has become a good defender and excellent game-manager and should be a nice change-of-pace for Ja Morant.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is going to the Raptors. An excellent defender and versatile forward, Hollis-Jefferson signed a one-year deal in Toronto.

Stanley Johnson has signed with the Raptors. Johnson is desperately in need of a fresh start and his two-year, $7.5 million deal is low risk for the Raptors, with high upside for both parties.
