Following the 2021 NBA Draft, the league is abuzz with trades, trade rumors, coaching changes, and contract offers. The official signing period for unrestricted free agents begins August 6th. Most big deals will happen after that point. That’s not keeping teams from making smaller trades or giving qualifying offers to their own free agents. While we’re waiting for fireworks, here are all the weekend moves in one place.

Free agent Orlando Magic wing Otto Porter Jr. could be looking for a mid-level deal Monday night, according to J. Michael at the Indy Star. Blazer's Edge's Danny Marang named Porter Jr. as an interesting target for Portland.

The Boston Celtics, Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks have pulled off a three-team trade. Tristan Thompson will land in northern California, Delon Wright goes to Georgia and Kris Dunn, Bruno Fernando and a 2023 second round pick arrive in Bean Town, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Portland Trail Blazers championship guard Lionel Hollins has said goodbye to the Los Angeles Lakers after two seasons as an assistant coach.

Hollins’ tweets may indicate that he is joining ESPN.

Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that, to nobody’s surprise, the Chicago Bulls have made a qualifying offer to Lauri Markkanen, making the 7-foot forward a restricted free agent.

Boston pulls off a second deal, bringing in wing Josh Richardson via their trade exception, while the Dallas Mavericks clear space for free agency, according to Charania.

As part of that trade, Moses Brown is moving on to the Mavericks.

Bobby Portis of the Milwaukee Bucks will become a free agent after declining his player option.

Forward Isaac Bonga will not return to the Washington Wizards, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Miami Heat have declined Andre Iguodala’s team option.

However, they are picking up Goran Dragic’s option.
