2016 NBA free agency is well underway, and here’s where you can track every agreement/signing that goes down. It’s been a wild summer already given the fact that the salary cap has made an unprecedented jump from $70 million to $94 million, and some crazy deals have been agreed upon.
Free agency’s biggest fish was Kevin Durant, and he shocked the world by heading to the Golden State Warriors. Let’s take a look at all the deals thus far.
Joakim Noah: The former Chicago Bulls big man has agreed to a four-year, $72 million deal with the New York Knicks. Four years is rather excessive for Noah given his age and injury history, although he can help the Knicks defensively and on the boards.
Timofey Mozgov: Mozgov fell out of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ rotation this past season, but that didn’t stop him from getting four years and $64 million from the Los Angeles Lakers. This is a truly bizarre move given Mozgov’s play last year and his recent knee issues, but apparently the Lakers think he can bounce back.
Bradley Beal: As expected, the Washington Wizards shooting guard is getting a five-year max deal worth close to $130 million to stay with his current squad. There was never much doubt that Beal would get this contract, and now he and John Wall are locked up together for a long time.
DeMar DeRozan: DeRozan didn’t dabble with anybody else, as he’s agreed to a five-year deal worth $145 million with the Toronto Raptors. This is a high price tag given his flaws, but he just had a career year and this quick deal shows the loyalty from both parties.
Nicolas Batum: The Charlotte Hornets have agreed on a new five-year, $120 million deal with their versatile forward. There is a player option on the fifth year, and this deal was a no-brainer for Charlotte.
Andre Drummond: In another expected move, the Detroit Pistons restricted free agent is getting a similar five-year max deal to Beal. Drummond is the centerpiece of the franchise and was getting a max no matter what, even despite his free throw shooting woes.
Jordan Clarkson: The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a surprisingly low four-year, $50 million deal with their young guard. Considering what the Lakers gave Mozgov, this is a steal.
Ish Smith: The Detroit Pistons found their backup point guard by agreeing to a three-year deal with Smith worth $18 million.
D.J. Augustin: The veteran point guard is off to the Orlando Magic to provide depth in the backcourt.
Hassan Whiteside: While there was a dalliance with the Dallas Mavericks (sound familiar?), Whiteside ultimately decided to return to the Heat on a four-year that’s reportedly just shy of his max of $98 million. The Heat now turn to Kevin Durant and Dwyane Wade.
Jeremy Lin: “Linsanity” is returning to New York, only it’s coming to Brooklyn and not back to Madison Square Garden for a redux, as Lin has agreed to a three-year, $36 million deal with the Nets. This is a good value deal for the Nets after Lin had a strong year in Charlotte.
Al Jefferson: In a rather surprising move, the lumbering big man has joined up with the Indiana Pacers on a three-year, $30 million pact. The Pacers have been looking to play faster and smaller, so Jefferson is a weird fit, but he could work out as a scorer off the bench.
Jerryd Bayless: The Philadelphia 76ers begin to plug their hole at point guard by agreeing with Bayless on a three-year deal worth $27 million. The 27-year-old knocked down nearly 44 percent of his three-balls this past season.
Mirza Teletovic: The Milwaukee Bucks badly needed shooting, and they got some in the form of Teletovic on a three-year, $30 million deal. The forward shot over 39 percent from three last season.
Chandler Parsons: We knew Parsons was going to leave the Dallas Mavericks, but there didn’t seem to be a clear-cut favorite between the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies. Well, Parsons is going to the Grizzlies on a four-year max deal worth $94 million, and this likely means Mike Conley is staying.
Evan Turner: Turner agreed to a whopping four-year, $70 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers shortly after Parsons agreed to his max with Memphis. Turner showed some improvement in Boston after a rocky start to his career, but this feels like a bad overpay.
Evan Fournier: The Orlando Magic’s restricted free agent has agreed to re-up with the team on a five-year, $85 million deal. This makes all the sense in the world after the trade of Victor Oladipo.
Matthew Dellavedova: The Cleveland Cavaliers point guard has agreed to a four-year, $39 million offer sheet with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Cavaliers will have three days after July 7 to match, but they aren’t expected to do so, especially after he fell out of the rotation in the NBA Finals and can be replaced.
Solomon Hill: The former Indiana Pacers forward showed some promise as last year went on, and he’s agreed to a four-year deal worth around $50 million with the New Orleans Pelicans.
Mike Conley: Once the Chandler Parsons agreement was reported, Conley going back to the Memphis Grizzlies seemed like a done deal. And now it is, as the point guard is getting a five-year max deal worth $153 million, an NBA record.
Dwight Howard: The embattled big man is heading home to play for the Atlanta Hawks on a three-year, $70.5 million deal. Does this mean the end of Al Horford in Atlanta?
Jeff Green: In a rather random move, the Orlando Magic have agreed to a one-year, $15 million deal with Green. If you look at this deal in a certain way, the Magic basically traded Tobias Harris for Green.
Darrell Arthur: The Nuggets have agreed to re-sign the veteran big man on a rather affordable three-year, $23 million deal. Not bad.
Justin Hamilton: The big man has agreed to a cheap two-year, $6 million deal with the Brooklyn Nets.
E’Twaun Moore: The guard got a nice little four-year, $34 million payday from the New Orleans Pelicans after a career year with the Chicago Bulls.
Jared Dudley: The Phoenix Suns lost a shooter in Mirza Teletovic, but they got one right back in forward Jared Dudley. And in fact, both players got three years, $30 million, with Dudley returning to Phoenix in the process.
Kent Bazemore: The Atlanta Hawks swingman decided to re-up with the team on a four-year, $70 million deal. This is especially significant because it may just be the final nail in Al Horford’s coffin in Atlanta…or maybe Paul Millsap is traded to make room for Horford?
Joe Johnson: In a move that came a bit out of nowhere, the seven-time All-Star agreed to a two-year, $22 million deal with the Utah Jazz. The Jazz have quite the stable of wings at their disposal, and they should be a heck of a squad next season.
Luol Deng: The Los Angeles Lakers have added another veteran by agreeing to a four-year, $72 million deal with Deng. Like the Timofey Mozgov deal, four years feels a bit excessive for Deng, but he’ll provide stellar play and leadership on a young squad.
Jon Leuer: Stan Van Gundy loves him some stretch 4s. The veteran forward has agreed to a four-year, $42 million deal to add depth in the frontcourt in Detroit.
Arron Afflalo: The Sacramento Kings had been rumored to be going hard after Dion Waiters, but perhaps that won’t happen now that they’ve agreed to a two-year,
Bismack Biyombo: The Orlando Magic stay weird by adding Biyombo on a four-year deal worth around $70 million. This sets up a Biyombo/Serge Ibaka frontcourt, which probably means Nikola Vucevic is gone and who knows what happens with Aaron Gordon.
Trevor Booker: The veteran big man has reached a two-year, $18 million agreement with the Brooklyn Nets.
Ryan Anderson: The Houston Rockets added a stretch 4 in Ryan Anderson to light it up in Mike D’Antoni’s offense. Of course, Anderson won’t help the Rockets’ terrible defense and he comes at a price tag of four years, $80 million.
Marvin Williams: The Charlotte Hornets fought off several suitors and re-upped with the forward on an affordable four-year, $54.5 million deal.
Anthony Tolliver: The Sacramento Kings got the veteran forward on a cheap two-year, $16 million deal.
Al Horford: Horford has dropped a bombshell by joining up with the Boston Celtics on a four-year max deal worth $113 million. This vaults the Celtics up a tier or two in the Eastern Conference and could have Kevin Durant implications.
Courtney Lee: The New York Knicks have filled their hole at 2-guard by agreeing with Lee on a four-year deal worth about $50 million. The Knicks have rounded out a talented starting lineup by adding Lee, but health is the major question.
Austin Rivers: The Los Angeles Clippers are apparently out of the Kevin Durant chase, as they’ve agreed to a three-year, $35 million deal with Austin Rivers, the son of president and head Doc Rivers.
Harrison Barnes: The Dallas Mavericks struck out on their top targets and also lost Chandler Parsons, and now they’re getting Harrison Barnes on a max offer sheet after Kevin Durant went to Golden State.
Ian Mahinmi: The Washington Wizards were in on the Al Horford sweepstakes, but after falling short they turned to Ian Mahinmi to provide a defensive presence down low. The agreement is four years, $64 million.
Eric Gordon: The Houston Rockets appear to have little interest in defense, but they continue to get more potent offensively by agreeing to a four-year, $53 million deal with the shooter. Hilariously enough, now Gordon and Ryan Anderson are both going from the New Orleans Pelicans to Houston.
Wesley Johnson: The Los Angeles Clippers continue to bring the band back together by agreeing to a three-year, $18 million deal with Johnson, who could be the starting small forward next season.
James Ennis: The Memphis Grizzlies added the forward on a two-year, $6 million pact. Ennis had a cup of coffee with the team last season.
Andrew Nicholson: The Washington Wizards make another addition to their frontcourt by agreeing to a four-year, $26 million deal with the big man.
Cole Aldrich: Tom Thibodeau shores up his frontcourt by agreeing to a three-year, $22 million deal with Aldrich. Karl-Anthony Towns appears to have his backup center.
Malcolm Delaney: Delaney has spent years overseas, but now he’s finally coming to the NBA on a two-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks.
Garrett Temple: The Sacramento Kings have added Temple on a thee-year, $24 million deal.
Tomas Satoransky: The Washington Wizards are finally bringing over Satoransky, a second-round pick from 2012. The deal is for three-years, $9 million.
Jamal Crawford: It had looked like Jamal Crawford wasn’t going to return to the Los Angeles Clippers, but now he will be on a three-year, $42 million deal. That’s a whopper of a contract for the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, but at least the final year is partially guaranteed.
Rajon Rondo: The Chicago Bulls traded Derrick Rose…and have replaced him with Rajon Rondo on a two-year deal worth around $30 million. This is a weird one.
Matt Barnes: The Sacramento Kings let Rajon Rondo walk…and then promptly agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with another enigmatic player. And this came after the Kings rescinded their qualifying offer to Seth Curry.
Dwight Powell: The Dallas Mavericks brought back their own restricted free agent by agreeing to a four-year, $37 million deal with the big man.
Deron Williams: Shortly after the Powell agreement broke, it was reported that Williams was also coming back to Dallas. The veteran point guard is returning on a one-year, $10 million deal.
Tarik Black: The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to re-sign their reserve big man to a two-year, $12.85 million deal.
Kevin Durant: KD actually did it. He’s going to the Golden State Warriors on a two-year deal with a player option. Absolute bombshell.
Sergio Rodriguez: The Euro star is coming over to the Philadelphia 76ers on a one-year, $8 million deal.
Ramon Sessions: The Charlotte Hornets lost Jeremy Lin and have replaced him with Sessions on a two-year, $12 million deal.
Luc Mbah a Moute: The Los Angeles Clippers continue bringing the band back together by coming to an agreement on a new deal.
Brandon Jennings: Jennings is heading to the New York Knicks on an incredibly cheap one-year, $5 million deal. The Knicks have their sixth man.
Zaza Pachulia: The Golden State Warriors needed a center after trading away Andrew Bogut and renouncing the rights to Festus Ezeli, and they got one by agreeing to a one-year, $2.9 million deal with Pachulia for the room exception.
Lance Thomas: The New York Knicks continue to round out their bench by bringing back the forward.
Roy Hibbert: The Charlotte Hornets lost Al Jefferson, and they’re now replacing him with Roy Hibbert. That seems too perfect.
Seth Curry: The Dallas Mavericks got the other Curry at a two-year, $6 million bargain.
Dirk Nowitzki: The Dallas Mavericks legend is returning to the Mavericks on a two-year, $40 million deal. Quite expected.
Gerald Henderson: The Philadelphia 76ers have added the veteran wing on a two-year, $18 million deal.
Mindaugas Kuzminskas: So, yeah, this dude has agreed to a two-year deal with the New York Knicks.
Willy Hernangomez: Another Euro player the New York Knicks are bringing over, except this is one they drafted.
David West: West stays ring chasing as the veteran big man is heading to the Golden State Warriors on a veteran’s minimum deal.
Jason Smith: The veteran big man is heading to the Washington Wizards on a three-year deal.
Nene: The Houston Rockets get Nene on a steal of a one-year, $2.9 million deal.
Brandon Rush: The Minnesota Timberwolves have added some shooting in the form of Rush, who’s leaving the Golden State Warriors for a one-year, $3.5 million deal.
Brian Roberts: The Charlotte Hornets are bringing back the veteran guard on a veteran’s minimum contract.
Langston Galloway: The New Orleans Pelicans add some guard depth by agreeing to a contract with the former Knick.
Davis Bertans: The 2011 draft pick is finally coming over to the San Antonio Spurs.
Dwyane Wade: The longtime Heat guard pulled a shocker and decided to agree to a two-year deal with his hometown Chicago Bulls. Yes, D-Wade actually left Miami.
Richard Jefferson: Remember when Jefferson was retiring? No sir! The veteran is returning to Cleveland on a two-year deal.
Leandro Barbosa: The “Brazilian Blur” is heading back to a familiar spot, as he’s rejoining the Phoenix Suns on a two-year, $8 million deal.
Boban Marjanovic: The big man has signed a three-year, $21 million offer sheet with the Detroit Pistons to be a backup for Andre Drummond, and the San Antonio Spurs won’t match.
Dewayne Dedmon: With Boban out, the Spurs have added Dedmon on a two-year $6 million deal.
Rodney McGruder: The Miami Heat have given one of their Summer League guys a shot.
Marshall Plumlee: Another Plumlee in the NBA! This one is going to the New York Knicks on a multi-year deal.
Marcus Thornton: The veteran gunner is returning to the Washington Wizards on a one-year deal.
Marcelo Huertas: The Los Angeles Lakers is heading back to the team on a two-year deal.
Nicolas Brussino: The Dallas Mavericks have signed the Argentinian forward to a partially guaranteed three-year deal
Ian Clark: The Golden State Warriors are bringing back the guard on a one-year pact.
Festus Ezeli: In one of the more stunning deals of free agency, Ezeli is going to the Portland Trail Blazers on a two-year, $15 million deal with a team option in the second year. Knee issues and terrible postseason performance really hurt the big man.
Marreese Speights: “Mo Buckets” is leaving the Golden State Warriors and joining the Los Angeles Clippers on a minimum deal.
James Michael McAdoo: While Speights is leaving the Dubs, McAdoo will return.

Udonis Haslem: The veteran big man is returning to the Miami Heat on a one-year deal.
Tyler Johnson: The Brooklyn Nets hit the Miami Heat with a backloaded four-year, $50 million offer sheet for the guard, but after losing Dwyane Wade and adding some other smaller pieces, the Heat decided to match.
