Let’s update the latest rumors around 2017 NBA Free Agency. The official start of Free Agency is at 9:00 pm, June 30th, Pacific Time, when the “Moratorium” begins. At that point, teams can talk to free agents, but no official agreements can be made. The rumors are expected to ramp up as we get closer to that date, and fireworks often fly as soon as the Moratorium begins.

In case you’re wondering, all is indeed quiet in Blazerland. There have been no reports of interest so far, either from the team or players. The Oregonian’s Mike Richman hints that the Blazers may have limited activity.

Transactions

Indiana traded Paul George to Oklahoma City for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are sending Ricky Rubio to the Utah Jazz for a 2018 first-round pick.

Blake Griffin has agreed to a contract extension with the Clippers.

Meanwhile, Tony Allen’s defense is in strong demand all over this offseason.

After suffering a rough injury in his first game with the Cavs, Andrew Bogut is back on the market.

David Lee is also entering the free agent waters.

The Warriors are reaching some ugly luxury tax territory, and Andre Iguodala will try to find out his offers quickly when the moratorium starts.

Possibly related to that, Golden State is letting go of one of their rarely-played youngsters.

Multiple reports state that New Orleans strongly wants to re-sign Jrue Holiday. However, their sites use auto-play video, and we’ll skip linking them. Here’s a handy search on Twitter instead.
