NBA rumors: Carmelo Anthony open to waiving no-trade clause for Houston, Cleveland
Free agency began at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, which also ushered in the first day of the league’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The weekend kicked off with a bang as Paul George was traded to the Thunder and Stephen Curry and Blake Griffin signed new max contracts with their respective teams. Gordon Hayward, Paul Millsap and Kyle Lowry are among the top names left on the market.
Remember that free agents can agree to deals but cannot sign contracts until July 6 at 12:01 p.m Eastern, when the NBA's moratorium period ends.
