The clock strikes 6 p.m. ET on June 30.
Brook Lopez agrees to re-sign with Bucks for four years, $52M
Once free agency opens at 6 PM ET, Brook Lopez is planning to sign a four-year, $52M deal to stay with the Milwaukee Bucks, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
In his lone year with the Bucks, Lopez found a home. He had a prominent role in an offense that centers around a superstar in Giannis Antetokounmpo on a team that has Finals potential.
Kevin Durant to Brooklyn Nets for four years, $164M
Sources: Durant will sign a 4-year, $164M deal with the Nets; Irving will sign 4-years, $141M.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
The next chapter of Durant's career comes at his own terms. With all signs pointing towards him uniting with Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn, KD will have a chance to once again to lead a team to the promised land. But first, he's gotta let that Achilles heal up.
D'Angelo Russell to Warriors on sign-and-trade deal for four years, $117M maximum contract
Golden State and Brooklyn have agreed on a sign-and-trade, sending D’Angelo Russell to the Warriors on a four-year, $117M maximum contract, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2019
Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies
Golden State is trading Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies, league source tells ESPN. Warriors are sending a 2024 protected first-round pick in the 2024 (protected 1-4), 2025 (protected 1) and 2026 unprotected.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2019
Jonas Valanciunas agrees to re-sign with Grizzlies for three years, $45M
Once free agency opens at 6 PM ET, center Jonas Valanciunas is expected to commit to a three-year, $45M contract to return to the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
The post-Marc Gasol Grizzlies needed someone to fill the void he left behind as the team’s big man. In his brief stint in Memphis, Valanciunas impressed and the team ultimately decided to keep him onboard.
Khris Middleton agrees to re-sign with Bucks for five years, $178M
Once free agency opens at 6 PM, All-Star Khris Middleton plans to return to the Milwaukee Bucks on a five-year, $178M contract, league sources tell ESPN. The deal is expected to include a player option on final year.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
If the Bucks wanted to keep Antetokounmpo happy, they needed to re-sign Middleton with the largest contract for a second-round pick in NBA history. As the first night of the free agency period progressed, it became clear that Milwaukee wanted to retain as many players from last season's team as possible.
JJ Redick agrees to sign with Pelicans for two years, $26.5M
Free agent guard JJ Redick has agreed to a two-year, $26.5M deal to join the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
The Pelicans desperately needed shooting. Redick definitely addresses that need.
Kemba Walker agrees to sign with Celtics for four years, $141M
Free agent Kemba Walker has agreed to sign a four-year, $141M maximum contract to join the Boston Celtics, Excel Sports agent Jeff Schwartz tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
Kemba in, Kyrie out. The Celtics have seamlessly supplanted Irving with an equally skilled point guard who doesn't bring as much locker room baggage.
Harrison Barnes agrees to sign with Kings for four years, $85M
Barnes' decision to opt out of a $25.1 million player option with the Kings didn't make much sense at the time. Now it makes all the sense in the world.
Derrick Rose agrees to sign with Pistons for two years, $15M
After playing 51 games last season, Rose found a team willing to invest $15 million over two years for his services. If the Pistons move off of Reggie Jackson, D-Rose could slide in as the team's starting point guard.
Al-Farouq Aminu agrees to sign with Magic for three years, $29M
Free agent Al-Farouq Aminu has agreed to a three-year, $29M deal with the Orlando Magic, league sources tell ESPN. Player option on third year.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
Get your money, Aminu! But we can't help but wonder why the Magic are willing to shell out so much money for another frontcourt player.
Terrence Ross agrees to re-sign with Magic for four years, $54M
Ross could've probably had his pick of the title contender teams, if he took a pay cut. He chose to get his money instead.
Garrett Temple agrees to sign with Nets for two years, $10M
The Nets have KD and Kyrie, now it's time to fill out the remaining holes in the roster. Temple isn't a bad place to start, especially at his price tag.
Danuel House agrees to re-sign with Rockets for three years, $11.1M
House spent the last three seasons bouncing around from team to team. Now he has some financial security with the Rockets where he averaged 9.4 points per game on 41.6 percent shooting from downtown.
Rudy Gay agrees to re-sign with Spurs for two years, $32M
Gay is comfortable in his role with the Spurs. If San Antonio is willing to meet him in the ballpark of his financial demands, why shouldn't he stay?
Terry Rozier agrees to sign with Hornets for three years, $58M
Scary Terry has made it clear that he believes he's ready to take on a bigger role. The Hornets are taking a chance on him, but is it because they like Rozier, or was it because he came at a far lower price than Kemba?
Dewayne Dedmon agrees to sign with Kings for three years, $41M
Willie Cauley-Stein wants out of Sacramento, and the signing of Dedmon may lead to the Kings granting his wish.
Bojan Bogdanovic agrees to sign with Jazz for four years, $73M
The Western Conference could be up for grabs, and the Jazz appear to be going all in. After acquiring Conley and signing Bogdanovic, Utah is looking like an intriguing team if they fill their power forward spot with a viable player.
Kristaps Porzingis agrees to re-sign with Mavericks for five years, $158M
If the Mavericks are willing to give Porzingis a max contract after coming off a torn ACL where he missed the entire season, you take that deal if you're in his shoes. If KP wants out, you force a trade. It wouldn't be the first time.
Rodney Hood agrees to re-sign with Trail Blazers for two years, $16M
Hood proved to be a valuable asset off the bench, especially in the playoffs. According to Wojnarowski, the Blazers traded for Bazemore in the event that they lost Hood, but now they have both players.
Trevor Ariza agrees to sign with Kings for two years, $25M
Ariza chose money over taking less to chase a title. It wouldn't be the first time.
Jeremy Lamb agrees to sign with Pacers for three years, $31.5M
Bogdanovic turned out to be way too expensive for the Pacers. Lamb slots in nicely for Indiana who has constructed a sneaky good team, with or without Victor Oladipo.
Ricky Rubio agrees to sign with Suns for three years, $51M
The Suns finally have a point guard. Like, an actual point guard!
Malcolm Brogdon agrees to sign with Pacers for four years, $85M
Malcolm Brogdon got PAID. Brogdon will be entrusted with running point for the Pacers, but there are only a few better situations to get yourself into than this one.
Thomas Bryant agrees to re-sign with Wizards for three years, $25M
When he was given the chance to showcase his talent, Bryant gave the Wizards something to think about. Dwight Howard missed all but nine games last season, but you probably couldn't tell because Bryant helped everyone forget.
Tobias Harris agrees to re-sign with 76ers for five years, $180M
Jimmy Butler's departure paved the way for Harris' return to the 76ers. It allowed for Tobias to be offered the max, and helped him become the team's (maybe) second offensive option. When you see a negative on Harris' end, let us know.
Jimmy Butler to Heat in Sign-and-Trade, four-year, $142M maximum contract
Sources: Jimmy Butler is signing a four-year, $142M maximum contract with the Miami Heat.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 1, 2019
Damian Lillard extends contract with Blazers for six years, $258M
Damian Lillard's Portland extension: Total of six years and $258M, an annual salary of $43M. https://t.co/PAwisoAgDf— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 30, 2019
Mike Scott agrees to re-sign with 76ers for two years, $9.8M
Scott is a solid role player on a cheap contract. Given the amount of money that the 76ers were spending on the first day of free agency, these smaller deals matter.
DeMarre Carroll agrees to sign with Spurs for two years, $13M
After an underwhelming 2018-19 campaign, Carroll turns to the Spurs to help revitalize his career. It could be a wise choice for both sides.
Julius Randle agrees to sign with Knicks for three years, $63M
Randle is sneaky good. He was 19th in the league in points per game (21.4) last season, and at 24 years old, he may be only beginning to unlock his potential. But then again, he's not Kevin Durant, and that's all the New York media will want to talk about.
George Hill agrees to re-sign with Bucks for three years, $29M
The Bucks are running it back with Hill, Middleton, and Lopez. Hill's presence in wake of Bledsoe's playoff disappearing act was proof enough that Milwaukee needed to keep him around.
Taj Gibson agrees to sign with Knicks for two years, $20M
In the shadow of today's free agency debacle for the Knicks, this deal doesn't blow you away, but Gibson is a consistently solid presence on the boards who can serve as a leader for the team's younger players.
Al Horford agrees to sign with 76ers for four years, $109M
WOW. Of all the teams vying for Horford, who could saw him going to Philadelphia? With Embiid at the 5, Horford will slot in at the 4. On paper, the Sixers' starting five looks quite impressive, but we will not get carried away just yet.
DeAndre Jordan agrees to sign with Nets for four years, $40M
The KD-Kyrie-DJ trio signing is complete, but Jordan's contract wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for an assist from Durant and Irving.
Ed Davis agrees to sign with Jazz for two years, $10M
The Jazz were in need of a power forward, and Davis fits that need. With Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, and Bojan Bogdanovic expected to carry most of the offensive weight, Utah needed a glass eater who would pair nicely with Gobert, especially on defense. They may have found that person.
Bobby Portis to Knicks on two-year, $31M deal
Free agent Bobby Portis has agreed to a two-year, $31M deal with the Knicks, agent Mark Bartelstein tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2019
Patrick Beverley to stay with the Clippers in three-year, $40M deal
Free agent guard Patrick Beverley has agreed to a three-year, $40M deal to stay with the Clippers, his agent @KB_Sports tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2019

Cory Joseph agrees to three-year, $37M deal with Kings
Enes Kanter agrees to two-year, $10M deal with Celtics
