NBA Free Agency Update 2018

As of 12:01 on July 1st, the NBA free agency market is already underway. In the first place, we’re already seeing a lot of activity.

NBA Free Agency

First and foremost, Kevin Durant resigned with the Golden State Warriors for two years. And, Chris Paul resigned with the Houston Rockets for 160 million dollars for 4 years. Also, Paul George will be staying with the Oklahoma City Thunder for $135 million for 4 years.

Indeed, one of the big questions has been where is LeBron James going. Be sure to check-out our LeBron James NBA Future post. At the same time, there have been rumors since the season ended that James would either join the Philadelphia 76ers or the Los Angeles Lakers.

As of last night, it is official as James has signed with the Lakers for four years for $153.3 million. In addition to James joining the Lakers, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee reached a deal with the Lakers. And, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has resigned with the team for a one year, twelve million dollar deal.

Other NBA Free Agency News

Now with the Lakers ready to be competitive against the Warriors and the Rockets, there were many other signings throughout the NBA. In case you missed it, the following signings took place.

    • Aaron Gordon has re-signed with the Orlando Magic for $84 million for four years.
    • In addition, the Knicks signed Mario Hezonja for one year for $6.5 million.
    • Detroit Pistons signed Glen Robinson III for two years at $8.3 million with a team option.
    • Also, the Phoenix Suns were active in reaching a deal with the former Houston Rockets forward, Trevor Ariza. With the Suns getting the number one draft pick, Deandre Ayton; they are building a young core of players.

With so much movement already, this week should provide plenty of excitement to see where some of the other free agents will sign.
