The first day of free agency in the NBA did not disappoint, with a flurry of signings and deals with players combining to agree to almost $3 billion in deals.

The first of the dominoes that fell started with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving going to the Brooklyn Nets and veteran center DeAndre Jordan joining them, immediately making them a threat in the Eastern Conference.

Kemba Walker also changed addresses, agreeing to a four-year, $141 million\ deal with the Boston Celtics, while Jimmy Butler is headed to South Beach to join the Miami Heat and Al Horford making his way to Philadelphia to join the 76ers.

The biggest free agent left is NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, who reportedly is deciding between the Toronto Raptors, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Lakers.
