Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Los Angeles Lakers

The Decision 3.0 has come and gone, and LeBron is taking his talents to Los Angeles. Now we’ll see who will join him. 2

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Warriors

K.D. declined his player option (gasp), but quickly agreed to return to the Warriors, who will once again be favored to win the NBA title. 3

Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Thunder

George has been the surprise of the offseason thus far, spurning the Lakers to return to Russell Westbrook and the Thunder long-term. 4

Update: Agreed to five-year deal with Nuggets

Jokic technically became a restricted free agent when Denver declined his option, but he quickly locked up a five-year, $148 million max contract to stay with the Nuggets. 5

Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Rockets

Paul and the Rockets wasted no time hammering out a four-year max deal to keep Houston as Golden State’s top challenger … for now. 6

Free agent type: Restricted

This time two years ago, who would have thought that Capela would be one of the most coveted free agents of 2018? He’s an ideal big man for the modern NBA, and showed that he can stay on the court with anyone during the playoffs because of his defensive quickness and shot-blocking ability. The Rockets surely want to retain him, but they might not be able to match if another team throws a max offer his way. 7

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Warriors

Uh, that was a surprise. Cousins shocked the world by adding his talents to the already-loaded Golden State roster, and now things just don’t seem fair. 8

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Mavericks

No hostage situation necessary this time around. Jordan will finally get his chance to suit up for the Mavs after quickly agreeing to a contract. 9

Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Magic

Gordon skipped that whole restricted free agency thing and just elected to re-sign with the Magic, who were happy to oblige. 10

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Pelicans

Randle was renounced by the Lakers and quickly found his new home in New Orleans. Anthony Davis was reportedly quite active in his recruitment. 11

Free agent type: Restricted

There’s no denying the impact that Smart has made on the Celtics over the course of his career, but how much are they willing to pay for him? Smart has said he thinks he’s worth more than $12-14 million, which may be too steep a price for Danny Ainge and the Celtics. What value will there be for a rugged defender with intangibles through the roof, but also one of the worst shooters in NBA history? We’re about to find out. 12

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with 76ers

Redick played a key part in the Sixers’ success last season, so Philly acted quickly to bring him back. 13

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Suns

The Rockets received a tough blow when Ariza decided to sign with a young Phoenix squad. It was a surprising move from the veteran wing. 14

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Jazz

Favors re-upped with the Jazz, as they look to duplicate the success they had last season. 15

Free agent type: Unrestricted

How far Thomas has fallen. It wasn’t long ago that he was talking about bringing out the Brinks truck to pay him this summer. Instead the market has dwindled for the 5-9 guard who was hampered by injuries all of last season. Thomas averaged nearly 30 points per game two seasons ago for Boston, so a team could get some high value if Thomas is able to get healthy and return to his old form. 16

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Pacers

Evans was a hot commodity as a scoring guard who can play point or off the ball, and the Pacers swooped him up with a $12 million offer. 17

Free agent type: Restricted

Parker has missed basically two whole seasons due to two ACL tears in his left knee, but he’s shown an ability to put the ball in the basket when he’s been on the court. The former No. 2 overall pick has extended his range to the 3-point line, and could be a playmaking stretch-four if he can remain healthy. 18

Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Trail Blazers

Nurkic reportedly turned down a more lucrative offer from Portland several months ago, but saw the writing on the wall in this rough free agent market. He’ll be in the middle for the Blazers again next season. 19

Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Bulls

LaVine signed a $78 million offer sheet with the Kings to force Chicago’s hand, but the Bulls quickly decided to bring the 23-year-old guard back into the fold. 20

Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Nuggets

The Nuggets wasted no time re-signing Barton, a key member of their reserve unit. 21

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Raptors

VanVleet made a great impression with Toronto last season, and they rewarded him with a mutli-year contract. 22

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Clippers

Mbah a Moute’s defense was a main component of the Rockets’ assault on the NBA last season, but shoulder injuries limited him toward the end of the season and into the playoffs. He is the ideal modern NBA defender, able to guard all five positions — a fact that won’t be lost on teams looking for wing depth. 23

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Clippers

Despite an injury, the Clippers apparently saw enough of Bradley last season to fork over $25 million for two years. 24

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Lakers

Rondo agreed to join LeBron James in Los Angeles, and joins an increasingly strange Lakers roster. We’ll see how things end up. 25

Free agent type: Unrestricted

Ellington probably wouldn’t be as high on this list in any previous season, but he’s hitting the market as the value of shooters is at an all-time high. Ellington averaged a career-high 11.2 points last season for Miami while shooting 39 percent on 3-pointers. He’ll have plenty of suitors. 26

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Bucks

Lopez has adapted as much as he can to the modern game by stretching his range out well past the 3-point line. He has low mobility and rebounds even less than he used to, but there’s always room in the league for a 7-footer who can knock down 3s. 27

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Lakers

Shortly after LeBron’s decision was announced, KCP agreed to return to the Lake Show. 28

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Spurs

Gay opted out of his contract with San Antonio, but agreed on a new deal shortly after free agency began. 29

Free agent type: Restricted

Hood’s free agent stock took a hit when he was buried on the bench for the Cavs’ NBA Finals run this season, but the upside is still there. At 6-8, Hood can shoot and has the defensive tools to improve on that end. Despite his recent struggles, at least one team will likely throw a decent offer at him. 30

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Nets

Harris re-upped with the Nets just after the free agency bell rang on Sunday morning. 31

Free agent type: Restricted

Harrell showed much more of a scoring touch last season than he’d previously displayed in his NBA career. Combine that with his energy on both ends of the court, and the undersized big man could get some strong offers. 32

Update: Agreed to three-year deal with Jazz

Exum is still full of potential, and the Jazz want to see it play out. 33

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Pelicans

Payton will return to his native New Orleans after agreeing to a one-year deal with the Pels. 34

Free agent type: Unrestricted

Monroe got a third chance in Boston last season after falling out of the rotation in both Milwaukee and Phoenix. He showed that he can still be an effective post scorer off the bench, but what’s that worth in the 2018 free agent market? We’re about to find out. 35

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Thunder

The Thunder are taking a wise gamble on Noel, a talented big man who’s coming off a rough season. OKC isn’t risking much as this deal includes a player option in the second year. 36

Free agent type: Restricted

A highly skilled 6-8 wing, Anderson flourished with Kawhi Leonard out of the Spurs lineup for the majority of last season. His game is perfectly suited for San Antonio’s system, so it will be interesting to see if other teams send offers his way. 37

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Mavericks

It came as a surprise to no one, but Nowitzki quickly agreed to terms with the Mavs. He’ll play his 21st straight season in a Dallas uniform next season. 38

Update: Agreed to three-year deal with Bucks

Ilyasova has been a journeyman over the past few seasons, but he hopes to find a home in Milwaukee … where he spent the first seven seasons of his career. 39

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Celtics

Baynes proved to be a crucial part of Boston’s success last season, so it was no surprise that they jumped at the chance to bring him back. 40

Free agent type: Unrestricted

The walking bucket will undoubtedly find a spot on a roster this offseason. There’s always room for a player who can put the ball in the basket, and the 6-9, 29-year-old is also a solid rebounder. 41

Free agent type: Unrestricted

Wade’s days of jumping from city to city are probably over, so the Heat likely have the inside track on his free agency. But you never know what can happen if LeBron comes calling. 42

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Nets

Davis is a great role player, and he’ll try to fit in with Brooklyn’s up-and-coming roster next season. 43

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Wizards

Green ended up playing a key role in the Cavs’ run to the Finals, and he’ll try to do the same for the Wizards in their potential playoff run next season. 44

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with 76ers

Johnson is a great chemistry guy and does the dirty work on both ends of the floor. The Sixers are glad to have him back. 45

Update: Agreed to three-year deal with Thunder

Grant’s decision didn’t get as much fanfare as Paul George’s but he’ll play a big role for the Thunder next season. 46

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Spurs

Belinelli had two of his best NBA seasons with San Antonio, and he’ll try to rekindle the magic on his latest deal. 47

Free agent type: Unrestricted

Backing up Damian Lillard for most of the season, Napier showed strong playmaking and scoring ability as he doubled his career highs in both points and minutes per game. He’ll make a solid backup for another team if the Blazers choose not to bring him back. 48

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with 76ers

The Sixers lost one stretch-four in Ersan Ilyasova, but quickly pounced on another one in Bjelica.  49

Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Trail Blazers

Curry missed all of last season with a leg injury, but is a knock-down shooter capable of playing both guard positions. He should help the Blazers bench. 50

Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Knicks

Hezonja was the No. 5 overall pick a few years ago, and the Knicks are hoping he can fulfill some of that potential. 51

Update: Agreed to three-year deal with Pacers

Dougie McBuckets will attempt to stretch the floor for Indiana, who took the Cavs to the brink of elimination in the first round of last season’s playoffs.
