It’s the first full day of free agency and the activity is expected to continue today.
Several teams have already made some noise, including the Portland Trail Blazers, who signed Anfernee Simons and Gary Payton II last night. Jusuf Nurkic remains unsigned, and that deal could come at any point today.
The other 29 teams will also be busy today as the association gears up for a reshuffling going into next season.
We’ll bring you Portland’s moves—if any—in their own, individual posts today. This thread will serve as a clearinghouse for all other transactions. We’ll hear plenty of rumors, get exchanges anticipated and confirmed, and rise and fall with the waves in the NBA ocean.
Stay tuned all day long as this post populates and the landscape of the league changes before our eyes! The new season begins now. We’ll walk through it with you from beginning to end.
