One of the most exciting times of the NBA season has finally arrived as free agency is set to begin on Sunday at 6 p.m. ET, which is just a few short hours away. Players will not be able to officially sign contracts with teams until July 6 when the Moratorium Period has ended but can still agree to deals with teams. This year’s free agency is shaping up to be one of the biggest and most eventful in history. Who will be the new super team?
Here are the latest rumors and updates that you need to know about as we await the start of free agency.
Kyrie Irving – Expected to sign Max deal with Brooklyn Nets
Kevin Durant – Expected to join Kyrie in Brooklyn, he has sold his home in the Bay area and Southern California. Officially has meeting with the Nets, Warriors, Clippers & Knicks.
D’angelo Russell – The Nets will move on from Russell’s impressive season and replace him with Kyrie, another reason KD is a sure bet to land in Brooklyn. Russell is in LA has posted previous pics of him in a lakers jersey on social media, its where he wants to return. This will depend on Kawhi Leonard’s decision.
Kawhi Leonard – The two time finals MVP who purchased a $30 million dollar mansion inSouthern California earlier in the year is meeting with 3 teams. The Clippers, who he doubts they have a second star, the Lakers very attractive have a max slot, and the Raptors, i’m not sure why you meet with a team you just won a championship with. Clipper or Lakers?
Jimmy Butler – Miami – Has quoted on Instagram its his destination of choice and he would be the number 1 star, he is in Miami for a meeting today.
Kemba Walker – Is a Boston Celtic on a max deal
Al Horford – The Sacramento Kings set to offer him max deal, he will take it!
Ricky Rubio – Indiana Pacers
DeMarcus Cousins – Who will have him and how much will it cost? If he’s looking for the dollars he may end up back in Sacramento. Maybe New York if they bust on everyone else.
Nikola Vucevic – will remain in Orlando and receive a well earned payday of $100 million.
Klay Thompson – Will receive and accept Max offer from the Warriors.
Harrison Barnes – To the Kings who are splashing this free agency, 4 years $88 Million. How does this man keep getting paid?
Kristap Porzingis – 5 year $158 million to stay in Dallas.

How does Free Agency affect futures bets?
Its monumental! But don’t run to your Bookmaker the second you hear a player has signed. Chances are before anyone has laid a dime the Sports book has factored it into their quote. Shouldn’t lines move with money? Not in future bets. The lakers are +200 favorites and only currently have 4 players signed on their roster, if looking at future betting around free agency you are trying to negotiate value, for me that means the odds of at least +1000 to counter for the risk.
